Right now in 2013, there are just under 15 million students enrolled in undergraduate programs in the United States. While a significant portion of those students are housed by campus housing, there are plenty more students who live in off campus apartments. Most schools offer students the option of living in campus student housing or finding alternative student housing, like apartments or houses off campus. Of course, for students going to school in their hometown, living at home is always an option.
