University of Akron Off Campus Housing

If you are a new or returning student to The University of Akron, you have likely thought about whether or not to live in a dorm or off-campus. This will talk about the benefits of off-campus housing and frequently asked questions.

Why Select Housing Off-Campus?

Because off-campus housing offers greater autonomy, nicer accommodations, and better value for money, many students look into living off-campus.

The days of sharing a restroom with a whole hall are long gone when you choose off-campus accommodation. In addition, you may have a better bathroom-to-person ratio and your own bedroom!

Off-campus housing can be an excellent choice if you miss your pet back home! Please visit our pet policy for more information.

Living off campus allows you to take advantage of all the extra amenities that come with your new apartment complex, such as a swimming pool and private washer/dryer.

We have included the most common queries from students concerning our off-campus housing here:
