While there are many advantages to being a commuter student at GMU—you get to live wherever you want—it does not provide all the benefits of living on campus like having access to transportation services or having friends nearby when you need help with class material or just want someone to hang out with during free time between classes (which can be hard if your apartment complex isn't close by). If you want to live near friends who are also going through college life experience together then living off campus may be the best choice for you!
GMU does not offer housing for freshman students, but you could live at home and commute if that is your preference. If you are a commuter student and want to live near campus, there are some apartments close by that can help you out with the commute. The closest apartment complex to GMU is the University Park Apartments which is located just off of Fairfax Blvd., between Braddock Rd. and Little River Turnpike.
