Should I live at home, on campus, rent an apartment, or live at La Casa?

You asked: “Should I live at home, on campus, rent an apartment, or live at La Casa?”

Good question. It’s up to you to decide.

When deciding where you will live during your time in college, think about what is important to you. Consider putting together a list of pros and cons. Keep in mind that each option has its advantages and disadvantages. It is crucial for you to weigh your choices before you make a final decision.

It may help to itemize and project expenses. Fill in the blanks.

La Casa provides a different college living experience:  a living learning community exclusively for college students. All features and amenities of La Casa Student Housing and Resource Center are included in the monthly cost.  You don’t have to make a twelve-month commitment; our leasing period is adjusted to match your university’s academic term (i.e. 9-month lease).  The option to sign a 9-month lease means that you can experience living off-campus without having to commit to the added expense of summer housing.

Another great benefit of La Casa is that you may qualify for financial assistance via our La Casa Student Housing Scholarship Fund. If you wish to be considered, you must submit an application. Space and assistance is limited.
