The Pros Of Living On Campus

Heather Zweifel | Writer

As the summer approaches, we are all thinking about possibly transferring to a university. So what does that mean for college living? Something to keep in mind is the advantages of living on campus.

Students often want to have freedom from their parents, and living in a dorm room allows them to. In addition, they get a sense of what it is like to live on their own, but still have some things they don’t pay for such as the dryer, washing machine, and shower. As you are rooming with other students, you become part of a community that shares the college experience.

Another benefit of living on campus is less stress commuting to college. For some students, getting to college can be stressful, because of either traffic or the fear of driving on the highway. Also, being a university student you may be eligible for meal plans, this can save you money in the long run along with time-saving.

According to several studies from different universities, it is said that living on campus helps academically. Many university students can get additional help with their studies as they can easily see tutors, or even their roommates depending on what they are majoring in. Living on campus isn’t necessarily bad for some people.
