1. Convenience – Commuting daily can be frustrating. Students can save time and gas by living in close proximity to the campus. However the disadvantage of renting or owning is the added expense. For students without the option to live with family this could be a challenging option to try out alone or with roommates.
2. Experience – Establishing independence can be a fun stage of growth. Imagine building credit, earning a degree, beefing up a resume, all while moderating a robust social life. Realistically without support or loans a young professional can expect less social life and more picking up shifts while juggling studies. To those already established this is a great way to continue that momentum.
3. Community – Owning real estate near a campus tends to be a good investment. The community refreshes each semester with new batches of students. Also if the campus expands then business in the area can benefit.
