You are closer to everything
Living on campus means you are closer to all classes and university facilities. You don’t have to wake up at 7 a.m. for a 10 a.m. class and drive from home to college amidst all the road traffic. You can get a good sleep, wake up late and still won’t be late for classes — isn’t it awesome? Also, when you live on campus you can access all the facilities by walking less than a mile.
You make friends for life
One of the best things about living on campus is living with roommates who could eventually end up being your close friends. Especially for freshmen who are new to everything in college, on campus dorms are the best place to meet new people and socialize. Most colleges have dorms just for freshmen, which is a great opportunity for new students to meet others new like them.
On campus housing is more fun
There are hundreds of things to do for students living on campus. All colleges have residential associations that organize movie nights, game events and many more activities for residents so that they can relax from the stress of studying. There is free food, free gifts and more than, that free fun. It makes College less tiring and more enjoyable.
Academic and social support
Academic pressure and being away from home can sometimes be too much to handle. Living on campus provides students with an opportunity to talk with other students going through similar hardships and they can always get support from the staff members.
It is very safe
Most on campus dorms and apartments have a special access card which is needed to swipe in the building along with the key for individual rooms. Also, there is security available in the building 24/7 to take care of the students. There are security cameras throughout the building and there is escort service provided if a student must travel at night.
