There's been two recent discussions on college off campus housing: College housing and College housing 2

The issue is mainly one of local ordinances regulating the number of people residing in neighborhoods particularly single family zones. In the town where I own a SFH rental, they do not allow rooming houses or renting to more than 3 unrelated people in one housing unit.
