Dorms.....or Apartment?? That is the question!!

Its the lovely time of the semester where people are scrambling for housing for next fall. People should have their housing applications in to the Housing Office in Funkhouser, but others are waiting to find an apartment and sign the lease. For others, they have two choices still on the table. They turned in a application for university housing, but have offers to get a house/apartment with some fun friends. Guess who that is? ME!!!

There are such good reasons to stay and live on campus next semester. You are right there living close to classes and don't have to use your car too much. Plus there's always the predicament about a transfer student that you wanna spend all your time with if your living on campus. You have meals and money on your card and don't have to worry about it.

Apartments have their own pluses as well. You are with just a few people that you know and trust. You don't have to share a bathroom with 30 kids and worry about how nasty it smells because of drunk students. You get your own space and can have lots of fun there and not deal with a ton of crazy neighbors blasting music at 3am.

Its really hard to choose but I'm sure I'll be able to pick soon enough, because I'll have to! Just make sure your doing what is right for you!!


  1. I live off campus and I love it. Altogether for me, it is cheaper than dorms.

  2. That's what I figured. It is cheaper. And I'd actually get money back from UK that I could use towards it! Like it cost me $2157.50 this semester to come to UK. If i live off campus w/ rent at $330/month, for the entire year its like $2600, when it normally cost me $4300. Plus They've give me part of my KEES money back for that, basically $1250 (minus certain class fees) so I could use that for rent!
