Whether you’re first setting foot in college or a returning senior, one of the big decisions we usually have to make at some point in our college career is whether to live on or off campus . While it seems that underclassmen tend to stay on campus and upperclassmen may be more inclined to get off, it’s undoubtedly an important decision.

If you’re one of the lucky ones who happens to live in a campus dorm where a kitchen is available, congrats! But is it everything you hoped for? Do you often times have to wait for the person in front of you who is baking cookies for his/her club? Or the other person having trouble boiling water as they try to cook ramen ?

As a commuter, you’ll always have access to your own kitchen. You won’t have to worry about going to your local dining hall or waiting to use the oven in an on campus kitchen. Instead, you can bring out your inner-Martha Stewart and cook  yourself something delicious (well, at least you can try).

Make sure you also are aware of your surroundings at all times and take all safety precautions to make sure you have a safe and healthy living experience off-campus.
