5 Reasons To Live Off-Campus This Semester

Shared dorms + COVID-19 = bad idea.

There’s no denying that COVID-19 is poised to radically change the campus life experience. But among all the places on campus, a typical college dorm is one of the least suited to COVID-19 precautions. Longwood University and Hampden-Sydney College are working hard to retrofit college living to meet the demands of COVID concerns. Still, from shared rooms to crowded entrances, there’s a lot that can keep you up at night.

Living off-campus means you can guarantee a private bedroom and significantly reduce the number of fellow students you’re sharing a living space with. The newly renovated apartments at College Corners on High were specifically designed with student circulation in mind. Each apartment, designed to hold three-to six students, has its own entrance as well as its own dedicated HVAC unit and ductwork that is not connected to the other apartments within the building — students aren’t the only thing circulating!

No more dragging your clothes across campus on laundry night

Whether you diligently wash a load of laundry every week or wait until you’re out of clean clothes to tackle laundry night, no one enjoys having to load up their clothes and haul them to a campus laundromat.

At College Corners apartments you can stay in and wash and dry your clothes as it suits your schedule. Throw in a load of laundry while watching your favorite show on the flat screen TV. No more hunting for quarters!

More space and privacy

Dorms are cramped and crowded. Give yourself some room to stretch and a bit of space away from the hustle and bustle of campus. Your College Corners on High apartment is the perfect place to relax and unwind after a tough day of classes and extracurriculars. You’ll enjoy the comfort and security of a private bedroom that’s far enough from campus to give yourself a break but close enough that you’ll always be on time for class.
