When summer break arrives, you may have the option of staying in your off-campus housing. This is convenient if you have traveled from another city or state for college. Here are three reasons to stay in your UIUC off-campus housing during summer break.
You Have a Job in The Area
You may have more than a seasonal job near your student community. This may be a job on campus with an opening for a summer position, or it may be a seasonal job that has offered you a permanent position. It is understandable to not want to start over next semester or take too much time off work.
Your Summer Plans Have Changed
If your plans to travel home have changed, it is easier to stay in your off-campus housing. This way, you do not have to make other living arrangements for the summer. If you do travel home for a few weeks, you have the option of returning to your apartment before the next semester starts.
You Have Started a New Life
You may have started a new life in your student community, from settling into your apartment to working a job in the area. It is also possible you have made summer plans with your friends in the community. Staying in the community just makes more sense when you have established a routine.
