There are going to be on and off campus options available. You can pretty much rent any place you want. I looked at commute times and convenience and actually ended up staying on campus for my first year so I did not have to own a car to drive around. Everything in Texas is pretty spread out so you really need a car and living on campus I could do without it.
For my second year I am not living off campus because that is a different experience as well and a lot of my classes are independent study so I am not going to classes as regularly as I used to.
Hope some of my points are helpful to your decision making !! Good luck !
Living on and off campus both had their own advantages but most people I know have lived there just for a year and then moved off campus. Also most of masters students live off campus. I studied my bachelor’s here and it was a rule from the school to live in the dorms and get meal plans for the first year – expensive but if you’re not used to cooking then the dining centers are super convenient !
Thanks a lot Tadashi – I was leaning to on campus for the first year and had started looking into meal plans but the costs are really adding up !! I have started taking cooking classes from my mom – I think I am going to be doing a lot of cooking ! hahah
thanks for sharing – really appreciate it !
