This Month's Timely Topic

Finding and Securing Affordable Off-Campus Housing

Finding off-campus housing and moving can be a stressful experience, but here are some basics that you can utilize to make your process a bit less stressful! 

  1. Start early! Your housing search should start as soon as you know that you want to live off-campus. This gives you the maximum amount of time that you can get to search for the right place to live.
  2. Don't give up! The housing search can be a long one, but remember that housing opportunities will get posted at different times, so keep checking back in the areas you prefer even if you initially don't find anything there.

  3. Take care of yourself! Again, this can be a stressful process, and remembering to take care of yourself in simple ways can go a long way toward mitigating or relieving that stress.
