    because you're then an absentee landlord and, as a parent the biggest reason for my kids, I want them to have the flexibility to pick dorm, frat, or apartment whichever they prefer ... and finally, in an mediocre housing market the financial seem less than obvious to me and certianly not worth lising felxibility.

    Can that be made to economically work? Housing is still very expensive in SLO proper and rents have fallen quite a bit since PCV opened up. You might end up paying more in intrest, taxes and fees than you would save on rent.
