2015 Housing Fair scheduled for February 4 in the International Hall of the Student Union

Published January 23, 2015 By Karla Rusch

Now is the time to secure housing for fall 2015!  If you are planning to live off-campus during the 2015-16 academic year, the Housing Fair is a great way to learn more about housing options in the community.  Twenty local rental companies will be on hand to provide information about an array of available rental properties in the Boone area.  While you're there, visit the Office of Off-Campus Community Relations table.  I'll be giving away Stick Boy cookies and coupons to the first 100 students who stop by our table for a "housing consultation".  The Fair will run from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.

Plan ahead.  Be informed and prepared.  Find the right housing for you!

Local landlords partner with Appalachian State on suicide prevention training

Published January 21, 2015 By Karla Rusch

The collaboration between Appalachian State University and local rental companies expanded in important ways this past fall semester when several local landlords participated in an in-depth suicide prevention training provided by Elisabeth Cavallaro, Coordinator of the Survive and Thrive program on campus.  Landlords are often on the frontlines in their interactions with student tenants who are dealing with stress, depression, or substance use.  The Survive and Thrive training provides tangible tools for navigating a variety of challenging situations, as well as identifying helpful resources. The following rental companies participated in the training:  Sofield Properties, Carefree Property Company, Village of Meadowview, Studio West, and the Cottages of Boone.  We commend these companies for their involvement in keeping ASU students safe and look forward to partnering with additional members of the landlord community in this endeavor in 2015.  For more information about health and safety resources on campus and in the community, visit the AppCares website or the Survive and Thrive website.

Housing Options Programs Begin in November

Published October 20, 2014 By Karla Rusch

Now is the time to begin thinking about where you will live during the 2015-16 academic year.  Believe it or not, it's worthwhile to start researching housing options for next fall now. This means thinking about type of housing (on-campus or off-campus; apartment or house; large rental complex or smaller building), cost, location, and other factors that are important to you.  Planning ahead and being a knowledgeable consumer will help to ensure that you find housing that is a good fit for you.  The Off-Campus Community Relations website and the Off-Campus Housing database are good places to begin your search.  But you will also need to get out and look around the community, thoroughly inspect any rental unit you are considering, ask questions, and carefully read the lease before making a decision.  For more information about how to approach the task of choosing housing for next year, attend one of our Housing Options/ Find Your Match programs.  These one hour programs begin in mid-November and continue through January 2015.  All programs are held in the Student Union.  Registration is not required.  Check the schedule, below, and choose a time that is convenient for you. 

The Off-Campus Community Relations Office is a partner program of the Student Legal Clinic.
