"My experience at Lake Superior State University is one of the best of my life. Not only did the education I received prepare me immensely for the work world, I made friendships and connections that are sure to last me a lifetime. LSSU is the perfect collegiate experience: exceptional educators, a welcoming community and the beauty of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula."

The Housing Dilemma

Where Should I Live?

A place to hang your hat—we know how important that sense of place is. And at this time of year, many students are beginning to figure out their place for the upcoming year. Where will they call home in the fall?
As students struggle to answer “Where should I live?” they will likely face the following concerns:

WHO? Who should I live with? Is it healthy for my current roommate and I to keep rooming together? Do I want to try living with a group? What if I can’t find anyone who wants to share a space with me? Will my friends and I remain friends if we live together?

WHERE? If I live on campus next year, what environment would be best? Should I live in a campus apartment, a suite, a theme house or somewhere else? If I live off campus, should I live with my family? Or should I get a place with some friends? How far away from campus do I want to be? Will I still be able to be involved with activities that are important to me?

HOW? How will I pay for my housing next year? Do I have enough for the deposit that’s required now? Where will I store my belongings during the summer? Do I need to find separate housing for the summer? What will I do about a meal plan? Will I need to get a job?

If your student wants to talk through the options with you, pose the above questions to help him or her look at the big picture. It’s not just about holing up with three of their best buddies in an off-campus apartment or an on-campus suite. It’s about how this decision will impact other areas of your student’s life, from involvement to finances to wellness and beyond. Home sweet home… it’s a big decision.
