Living Alone for the First Time: Off-Campus Housing and Apartments

Having your own place to live while you are an undergrad or graduate student is a great experience. Not only do you get the benefit of having a separate place to study, work, and relax, but you also get the chance to experience independence in a structured environment. While many people are thinking of independence first, don’t discount how valuable it can be to have your own place for refuge. Going to an elite school is stressful, and that’s harder to deal with if you are living in a dorm with a lot of other people. An off-campus apartment that you rent by yourself or share with a few friends is your haven as well as your launch point for each day.
