Manhattanville is located in Westchester County, a county that isn’t particularly cheap. For example, it is very expensive to live in White Plains and almost impossible to pay less than about $1,500 a month for a studio apartment. Even though White Plains’ proximity to campus is ideal, it isn’t always worth it to live off campus. Obviously, students who choose to live off campus can do whatever they want and have as many guests as they please. Yet, sometimes the disadvantages outweigh the advantages. With off-campus living, students have to pay not only for rent, but also for utilities like electricity, gas, and possibly water.
If students want freedom and the ability to do whatever they please in regards to the drug and alcohol policies, then it is better that they live off campus. The downside to living off campus, besides the high cost of living in Westchester, is that students miss out on campus life. College isn’t the same if you don’t live on campus. In addition to this, students who live off campus must be timelier than those who live on campus. Off-campus students have to take into account the amount of time it takes them to commute to campus and the amount of time to find parking, if necessary. Life is so much easier when students can roll out of bed 10 minutes prior to their classes and still be on time.
