About the Off-Campus Housing Information Exchange

The Information Exchange uses a 5 point scale:

5 = very satisfied
4 = satisfied
3 = neutral
2 = dissatisfied
1 = very dissatisfied
0 = not applicable

  • The “Overall Satisfaction” score listed for each company or complex is based on the averaged responses to the survey question asking students to rate their overall satisfaction with the rental unit. It is not an average of the responses to the other survey questions for that rental company.
  • We made a decision to include all rental companies that were identified in our survey, even those with only one or two student reviews. The number of reviews for each company is shown on the page for that company. We will be updating the Information Exchange quarterly with additional information obtained from students about off-campus rentals in Boone.
  • At this time, Information Exchange data for management companies is not sorted by specific property. In our next update, we hope to organize responses by specific property for companies that manage/ own a number of different properties. As we receive additional student input, we will be able to provide more meaningful information about specific rental properties. Click here to TAKE THE SURVEY if you are currently living off-campus!
