Exploring new ways for students to share information about off-campus rentals

We're experimenting with ways to collect information about off-campus living that can be shared with other students.  If you're currently living off-campus, please complete the short survey about your BEST off-campus living experience: OFF-CAMPUS HOUSING SURVEY #1. This initial survey is a preliminary step as we determine student engagement and the best instrument (survey method, etc) for collecting and publishing data.  We'll report the results -- and plans for moving forward with a more comprehensive information-sharing method for off-campus housing -- within the next two weeks. Check back here -- and on the Off-Campus Student Services Facebook page -- for updates.  Join us in creating a connected, engaged, and informed off-campus student community!

Announcing: "House Hunters: App State Edition" this Monday, February 4

Join Off-Campus Student Services and Transfer Services for a van tour of local student rental properties. We will stop at several apartment complexes for a quick open house and tour of a unit and will drive by other properties to help students get a sense of location and types of rental housing available. While this tour is, by no means, exhaustive, it's a great opportunity get the lay of the land and begin to explore options for off-campus housing -- all while being chauffeured in the comfort of a 12 person van! The tour will leave from the Belk Library Parking Circle at 5 p.m. and return at approximately 7 p.m.

Click the links for more information and to register in Engage:  TOUR 1  OR TOUR 2

Students with their own transportation are also invited to visit properties between 5 and 7 p.m. to participate in the open house!  See AppSync events (links, above) for information on which properties will be holding open houses.

Find Your Roommate Mixer

Are you a student planning to live off-campus during the 2019-2020 year? Would you like to connect with other off-campus students and, potentially, find to someone with which to live? If so, don't be shy!  Stop by the Whitewater Lounge on the second floor of the Student Union next Thursday, January 24 from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm to meet and network with other current or future off-campus students and explore housing options and roommate possibilities for 2019-20.

There will be free food, games, and prizes as well as information about off-campus living options and resources.

We know from experience that each year many students who are planning to live off-campus do not have roommates lined up to live with.  We also know that roommate conflicts can cause stress, interfere with academics, and create financial and legal issues for students.  While we can't promise you'll find a perfect roommate match, we can promise free food, useful information, and fun!  So, why not check it out?!  The more the merrier!

CLICK HERE TO REGISTER ON APPSYNC  Registration is not required, but it will make it easier for us to plan.  Thanks!
