Off-campus housing is an option uniquely available to most non-traditional Berea College students.
There are some unique qualities about Off-Campus life that students might keep in mind:
- Living off campus is both a privilege and a part of our adult responsibility.
- The off-campus lifestyle is not an excuse for distraction, which will be a detriment to academics or labor of ourselves or any academic peer or neighbor.
Take a look at the links below for support, and resources:
- To integrate yourself to life off-campus at Berea College go to Off-Campus Life, Community Resources, and Check List for Non-Traditional Students.
- For roommate conflict, please contact Counseling Services or notify your resident adviser for questions about housing changes.
- In a case of domestic violence, call 911 if you or your children are in danger. Otherwise, please notify Whitney Owens, or pursue help through counseling and visit the Support for Women and Children.
As a non-traditional student you probably have lived independently. Here are some ways to experience community while living off-campus:
- Frost Cottage is like a comforting home away from home. Non-traditional students can cook for themselves or make tea or coffee, build community, and study in a peaceful and productive environment.
- The Ecovillage offers a Thursday luncheon during the Fall and Spring for all non-traditional students, offering an alternative to the Dining Hall, and a chance to catch up.
- The Non-Traditional Student Association (NTSA) offer regular non-traditional events, go to Non-Trad Events. Also check out Collegiate Link for the option to customize your event notifications and to receive notice of Non Traditional events.
- Last, watch out for emails from firstname.lastname@example.org. Feel free to email any ideas you have for events, talks, or initiatives, as well as any concerns.
