Living off campus as a student of Ohio Wesleyan is about as likely as winning the lottery, and in fact, a lottery is how you are chosen! An off-campus option is only open to students that are at least 23 years old, so they are most likely seniors, and even at that time, the process seems more difficult than what it is worth. The simple reality is that the University wants its students to live on campus, and thus, it becomes a less-than-easy proposition to request to live elsewhere.
More than 100 students will apply to live in off-campus housing, and only a fraction will actually be given the nod to do so. If you are one of the chosen ones, there are many options from which to choose within a few blocks of campus. There are a lot of apartments on the main street, as well as many old houses in the surrounding area that are available for rent. The houses and apartments are relatively inexpensive, and living off campus will probably end up costing you less than living in one of the residence halls. Students that rent off-campus houses have been known to throw great parties, but not being near most of the students can cause them to be a bit isolated from a lot of their friends. Living off campus is an appealing, albeit rare, option for some, but most students are content living in the residence halls or fraternities, as they are very central and overall nice places to live.
