Off-Campus Living Guide

As a University of San Diego student, you are a member of a vibrant and compassionate learning community. By making the choice to live off campus, you are joining another community that extends beyond the University of San Diego. As a result, you have certain rights and responsibilities. The residential communities throughout the San Diego area strive to maintain a quality of life that recognizes and respects all community residents. Success in achieving this objective requires commitment from everyone.
