If you’re unsure about whether you should continue living on campus or look for TTU off-campus housing, look at the ways campus living affects your lifestyle. While living right on the campus is certainly convenient, it can adversely affect your ability to maintain good health. It can affect your stress levels, your ability to eat nutritious foods, and your access to exercise.

How Campus Life Affects Stress

The campus environment will continuously serve as a reminder of your academic responsibilities. Even if you’re doing well in your classes, this reminder can lead to more stress and anxiety. Living off campus provides an escape from college life, and it gives you the solitude and privacy you need to relax, study, and acclimate to independent living.

Why Your Eating Habits Change

When you live on campus, you’ll be restricted to a college meal plan or fast-food dining. Neither option may be nutritious or satisfying. When you live off campus, your apartment will feature a kitchen with storage space and appliances. You can use your kitchen to store nutritious foods in bulk and prepare meals at a fraction of the cost.

Exercise When It’s Convenient

Living on campus limits your ability to get sufficient exercise. Unless you join a sports team, you may not have access to the equipment you need for cardio or strength training. You won’t have to pay for an extra gym membership when you stay in TTU off-campus housing. You’ll have free access to a fitness center, swimming pool, and other amenities.
