3.5/5
Housing
Type of housing: First on campus, then off.
Arranged by: Independently - My choice
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why?
When I lived oncampus I felt cramped, I shared room with one girl and bath with seven others, so I moved off after only one semester and didn't regret it. But it is better to live oncampus if you don't know many people, you make friends faster.
