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.
