Whats the best option for a transfer student on south campus? I heard we are usually put on South campus? Is it hard to get used to the commute to the main campus?

There is a broad selection when choosing an off-campus house. Most students find it both appealing and fairly easy to move into an off-campus house or apartment in their junior year. One of the main appeals is simply a matter of economics-living off campus costs less than living in the dorms. Also, most off-campus locations are close to campus (within a 20-minute walk), and you are afforded a little more freedom since there are no RAs or Public Safety officers to bother you. The process can be a bit lengthy, since there are many realtors and many locations to choose from. Make sure you start your search about a year in advance.
A good alternative to off-campus housing are the SU-owned apartment complexes in South Campus, which require a five-minute drive or bus ride to get to. South, as it is known, is a good option for someone to live outside of the dorms but not completely on their own. South is usually a popular choice for sophomores. Although technically considered on-campus housing, the South Campus apartments give a good "partially off-campus" feel. Students seem to enjoy the apartment-style living option because it is a good transition point between dormitory life and being completely on your own. However, many students choose to live entirely on their own, and they enjoy it just fine-except for having to walk everywhere. If you do decide to move off campus, a car is an investment you should take into serious consideration.
