Does putting On campus or off campus help your financial aid package more?

So I was initially planning of living off campus but I didn't end up getting any grants. Would I get more if I applied as living on campus?

    Federal student aid (FAFSA) is based on the EFC from you FAFSA, and you will receive the same amount whether you live on campus or off. Some colleges do provide assistance from their own resources for students who live on campus, but since that is specific to a particular college, you would have to ask the financial aid department at the school you plan to attend whether that is the case for them.
