With spring semester underway, so is the decision of where you may want to live for the upcoming school year.  Most leases for off-campus houses or apartments either start in June or August if you live in a college town.

Going from a fall/spring payment for dorms, be prepared for a monthly rent payment due.

Extra costs

Be prepared to pay for water, electricity, cable, and more.

Proximity to classes and parking

Living off campus may be closer/farther, which could lead to a change in gas and parking fees.

Quiet Hours

Off campus housing you no longer have to worry about hours you have to abide by a noise ordinance.  You still have to be respectful of neighbors, but you won’t have an RA knocking on your door.
