    On verses in

    Can someone tell me why people live on the LSU campus but in Baton Rouge?

    Both are named areas of land so I am not sure why the difference.

    I notice we also say 'I live on the coast'. or 'in the coastal area.'

    Thanks

    Re: On verses in

    Baton Rouge is a city. People live "in" a city.
    "Campus" takes "on."

    When I was in school, I lived on campus the first year, and I lived off campus the other three years. At all times, I lived in the city of Troy.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
