Why Choose Off-Campus Housing
Many landlords offer leases that correspond to the school year.
Landlords know whether or not vacancies will occur for next fall.
The housing is often close to campus and/or on the city bus route.
City Licensed properties can legally accommodate larger numbers of unrelated people than traditional rental housing.
Landlords are experienced in meeting the unique needs of students.
Before you rent
Tour the unit you will be renting.
Read and understand your lease before signing.
Consider utility costs.
Know the rules - parking, guests, noise, garbage, parties, etc.
Know who is responsible for maintenance, repairs and cleaning.
Choose your roommates carefully.
Purchase renter's insurance. Your landlord's policy only covers the building, not your belongings.
