The off-campus housing availability near the UCO campus offers the next best thing to staying on campus. The majority of housing available off campus is affordable and located within a few blocks of campus, but some students live as far as five miles away. Not only are off-campus residents within minutes of their classes and campus resources, they are also able to actively participate in student campus life, such as annual parades and local sporting events, as well as being able to experience college in the privacy of their own homes.
While a large portion of the student body lives on campus, off-campus residents have the freedom in choosing to live alone, live with a roomate, and maintain their lifestyles practically on their own terms. Students off-campus also reside among various walks of life, such as families, children, and pets, in addition to other UCO students in these residential areas. The best part of all about staying off campus? Free and convenient parking!
