You may have picked your next city, your next school, maybe even your next roommate, but what kind of dwelling will you call your humble abode?
Will you live on campus or off? In a traditional dorm, suite, or apartment? Now is a good time to start thinking about what you need from your living situation—those of us who need peace, quiet and time to study should choose a drastically different place than those who need to make friends and memories.
Should you choose to live on campus or off campus?
