If you are looking for more of a social life, there's perks to both. On-campus housing provides you the opportunity to share a dorm with someone in the same age group. You will naturally be involved in dorm parties (if you are that type of person).
Off-campus housing provides you more privacy and opportunities to host parties and/or join a fraternity/sorority and house with them.
I transferred from a state college to a university and found it a bit intimidating for new friendships. This is mainly because as freshmen start off, everybody is new and in the same position. As time goes on, they develop and lose friendships overtime. Transfers enter the school where relationships are already established and thus harder to create friendships.
However, I have a subset of friends that I keep in contact with today (2 years out of college).
It is generally more expensive to live off-campus. Weigh those pros and cons accordingly. Hope this helped.
Hello, the advice that I can give you is see transferring school as a new journey. Enjoy your new transfer, at the beginning it might sound and feel weird and scary but there is nothing better than to start a new journey. Ask a lot of question to the staff at the school. Get involved in the activity at school if you can. You will be able to find new friends and some of those friends might be there for you for life. At one point we were all new to the school therefore everyone will help you out. If you can afford it leave on campus but it is sort of expensive. But either way transferring to a new school and to a new city is completely a new fun journey. Enjoy life!
