Off Campus Student Resources

As our residents become more independent we know they will be moving on to more independent living situations.  Below are resources that can assist in making good decisions about an off campus apartment, roommate assistance, and links to local ordinances.

 Apartment Resources

Roommates

Finding a compatible roommate and learning to live together in harmony can take some work.  Below are some resources to help facilitate a harmonious environment.

  • Establishing an understanding of how you will deal with certain situations can help resolve conflicts before they start.  We recommend you and your roommate fill out a side by side agreement to establish some of these parameters.
  • If you have lived on campus, then you probably already know someone you want to live with, if not Off Campus Housing provides a section for students to find other students as roommates.
  • Rent.com provides a good guide for how to find a compatible roommate.
