Asked by: Julius
Question: Hey, I am an international student and I'll be joining the graduate program in September but I am torn between living on or off campus.

Answered by: Svetlana
Answer: Hi there! Both on or off campus have their advantages. Personally, I would say living on campus really helps new students to adapt to their new environment as well as participates in on-campus activities and form social relationships. Also, if you want to concentrate fully on your studies and not worry about cooking, grocery shopping etc, on campus is better. However, off-campus is usually cheaper. Personally, I lived on campus the first year and then moved into an apartment with some friends the second year. That's in general what many of the international students do. Good luck ! And welcome to SMU !
