The girl who showed me the school said that she suggests living off campus. You get more for the money and you can get your head out of law school. I think living in the dorms would be too intense. Your whole life would be Law School Law School Law School and it is already going to be close to that. I think living off campus gives you some kinda escape. Thats just my opinion
First of all, let me say congratulations on your future fatherhood, Babin, must be an exciting (and stressful!) time for you.
Living at the University Family Housing has its benefits and drawbacks as far as Law School is concerned. On the one hand, it's specifically equipped for families, and University Housing is pretty good at what they do, so it would likely be fairly easy to move in. The fact that they're owned and operated by the University is nice, too, as it provides a degree of security as far as what you get. Also, they're located in a much quieter area of town that is away from the hustle and bustle of Central Campus and Downtown.
This is also a potential drawback, since North Campus is quite a bit away from Central and especially the Law School. The distance is certainly walkable, but it's a couple miles or so one way, and biking can be a pain in the winter. Bus service is provided for free by the University commuter buses, so if you're okay with that, then no worries - they run very regularly and pretty much always on-time.
