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. 

"Read the Lease" Campaign kicks off now!

Published October 7, 2014 By Karla Rusch

Approximately 2/3 of the Appalachian State University main campus student population -- or 10,000 -- 12,000 students -- live off-campus in Boone and the surrounding community.  As we move further into fall semester, students are already beginning to think about housing options for the next academic year (2015-16).  The Office of Off-Campus Community Relations and the Student Legal Clinic want to make sure that students who are considering moving off-campus next year -- as well as those who are already living off-campus, but may be looking to move to a different apartment or rental house -- have important information about how to choose the right off-campus housing for their needs.  One of the simplest and most important things you can do before you make a decision about off-campus housing is to read the lease!  To avoid surprises, extra costs, and legal problems down the road, make sure you read and understand your lease before you sign it.  If you have questions, or just want to go over the lease with someone who is familiar with legal documents, a licensed attorney can review your lease for free through the Student Legal Clinic located in Suite 324 of the Student Union.  Just call (828) 262-8284 for an appointment. 

You'll be seeing this message around campus over the next few months and into the spring semester.  Also, look for more information (coming soon!) about educational programs to help you choose the right housing for you.
