I’m a senior this year and my friends and I really wanted to live off campus in a house. After months of trying to find a suitable place that was big enough for six people we decided to do on-campus housing registration. We now are all happily living in the townhouses, and there are some unexpected perks even though I initially felt like I was missing out not living off-campus.
No splitting bills
One of the biggest issues of living off campus is managing paying bills and rent. If you’re living with a large group then making sure everyone pays for everything on time can get time consuming and it can cause tensions within the group as well if one person isn’t keeping up with payments.
