College Housing Grants
With the many differnet types of housing from campus to campus, housing costs can vary dramatically in cost. In some cases, college housing is a hugh problem. On campuses in urban areas, there is little area to develop and when housing runs out, there are no other options, but off-campus residence.
Housing Grant Sources
Money for college housing is not easy to find. Most of the time you will receive assistance through general grants that also cover living and transportation expenses. State governments are also a great source for college grants.
Another very important place to look is your campus financial aid office. You may find that the money they offer is included as part of larger tuition grants. In cases where an actual housing grant is offered there are usually limited funds. Again, every little bit helps!
