If you have been living in a dorm for a while, you know that it can be challenging. However, you may feel a little bit nervous about being off-campus. Here are a few things that you should know about off-campus living.
Something that many students appreciate about Western Washington University off-campus housing is that they can usually set their own rules. Of course, there will be general rules in an apartment about occupancy, noise levels, and pets, but you will be able to set your own rules as far as overnight guests and curfews go. As long as what you do is not destructive or illegal, you can pretty much do whatever you would like.
When you live on campus, many things are taken care of for you. However, when you find Western Washington University off-campus housing, you are going to have to make a budget, pay your bills, arrange repairs, and do other things that will give you experience that will prove beneficial later on in life. Even something like finding an apartment, talking with a landlord, and signing a contract can give you experience that will help you when you start a business, buy a home, or do other things that require you to make serious decisions and sign legal contracts.
Off-campus living will give you more space. You will have a real kitchen and a private bedroom. No more cramming everything into a tiny closet.
