Most BBSP students live in Chapel Hill, Carrboro, or Durham, though some students choose to live in Cary, Raleigh, or other nearby cities. About 70% of students live in an apartment, and the rest live in townhouses, houses, or on-campus housing. Overall, there is about an even split between those that live with roommates or partners and those that live on their own.

As the vast majority of students (92%) rent their home, many students invest in renter’s insurance to protect against unforeseen circumstances. The price will vary depending on the type of property and location, but students often find the yearly cost affordable. Renter’s insurance can cover events like theft, fires, floods, and accidents.
