There are absolutely no issues with installing Cassandra as a non-root user.

As I wrote in the Installing Cassandra page (CASSANDRA-15466):

The most obvious attribute of the tarball installation is it does not require root permissions and can be installed on any Linux distribution.

I've worked with a lot of companies who install Cassandra in this manner. You should be fine. Cheers!
