Places 4 Students logoThe department of Campus Housing empowers students to make the housing choice that is right for them.

We have recently partnered with Places4Students to provide students and landlords with an increased variety of housing options, combined with exceptional customer service and marketing.  Places4Students provide descriptive listings with photos, amenity icons, floor plans, mapping, and quick searches at reasonable rates for landlords while providing students with rental property listing searches, student sublets and roommate profiles at no cost.

We're here to help


» Are you a student looking for housing?

» Are you a student looking to post a roommate or sublet advertisment?

Find a place to live through our listing service or be directed to appropriate services to assist with about tenant rights, subletting, and other off-campus issues.


» Are you a landlord renting to students?

We provide access to a range of resources if you run into any issues along the way.

Starting your off-campus housing search

When searching for off-campus housing, familiarize yourself with the area online, check to see where the rental is located in relation to campus. The sites listed below will provide you with a good start to your search.
