There are a lot of different options, some owned by the professors at the college. There's apartments as well as the lake house. The quality depends on which off-campus house you chose. The lake house is the best, the apartments are lower quality. It's relatively easy to get permission to live off campus though.

There isnt much off campus housing to choose from it is all through local realtor companies and you have to jump on them before the end of the school year and Wells generally only lets seniors (students over 21) live off campus.

There really aren't that many off campus opportunities at Wells. You have to know someone from the area to get an apartment or try to get a graduating senior's apartment after they leave. Wells does offer their own off campus housing, but it's not that great. Right now one of the two Wells affiliated off campus housing is closed for renovations so the options are limited. Residence life really pushed for students to live on campus because that's more money for the college.

Specialty Housing – Wells has some great off-campus specialty housing. You have to be a certain age to apply (21), but once you're of age the options are relatively good. They have an off-campus building for people interested in the environment, social justice, etc. From what I heard it is fairly easy for people who want to live off campus and not go through specialty housing and just rent a place in town.

Wells is located in Aurora, NY, which is a very small town located on Cayuga lake. Off-campus housing sounds pretty good, right? If it's a small town, everything is within walking distance. On top of that, you might get to live on the lake! The problem, though, is that since you're on a lake, the rent tends to be very high. A common sense solution to that problem is to live with more people. In Aurora, that doesn't work. Aurora has an old law on the books that makes it illegal for more than 3 people who aren't directly related to live with one another. This law, despite being outdated, is enforced. In the end, although you might pick up a nice house, it wil end up costing you a pretty penny.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
