Dorming / On-Campus Housing?

Post Wed Jan 26, 2011 11:23 am
Hi,

Sorry if this isn't posted in the right sub-forum...and sorry if this is wide knowledge, but I don't know myself.

Do a lot of the business schools (I'm looking at first-tier) have on-campus housing or dorms for their incoming students? Typically how long can they stay on campus for? For my undergrad, students had 2 years of guaranteed housing on-campus if they wanted it. I know we also had very affordable housing for our graduate students but I don't know for how long or it was for specific graduate programs...I know we didn't have a lot of buildings for them in comparison to the undergrad housing. I'm also curious about how much the on-campus housing would run about if the school offers it. Like I said, I believe my school's was affordable. Bschool tuition will be expensive enough as it is...I'd hope that housing/rent/utilities would be one less thing to worry too much about.

TIA!

No idea about right/wrong area to post...but that said...

I can only speak for Fuqua - there's no grad housing for us at Duke. Most of us end up at 1-3 popular apartment complexes, and others disperse based on need (rent/buy houses for families/dogs, be close to partners' place of work, etc)... the cost of living is much cheaper here though (my comparison is SF!)

Thanks, for your response!

I'm hoping some others can chime in for other schools too...

If you're curious about specific schools that are already in the forum (e.g. I'm on "ask a Fuqua student" but there are many more schools represented) maybe try asking in those threads - they'll get a notification of a new response to look at!
