Living on campus is overall beneficial to live in close proximity to both campuses of APU. Freshmen housing has improved since their are 3 building options. Obviously Trinity is the newest, therefore the nicest and most spacious. Sophomore housing includes Shire modular or two apartment complexes. My shire mod experience was less than satisfactory because I felt like I was living in a cardboard box, but the community aspect was positive. Upper classmen housing in University Village is good, some apartments are older and more worn in but the space is exceptional, privacy is great, community participation is low but the recreational areas are decent and provide opportunities to socialize outside the apartments!
