Hello! Deciding between on-campus and off-campus living can be a bit challenging, but it's great that you're starting to think about it now. Some factors to consider include cost, distance to campus, social life, and personal preferences. On-campus housing is usually more expensive, but it often includes amenities like meal plans, utilities, and convenient access to campus resources. Off-campus living can be more affordable, but may require additional effort to find housing, roommates, and manage utilities. Distance to campus is important too, off-campus housing farther away might require additional transportation costs and time. On-campus living can provide a more immersive college experience and easier opportunities to make friends and engage in campus activities. Ultimately, it's important to assess your personal preferences, like independence, privacy, and level of involvement you desire in campus life. Good luck with your decision!
