Ten days ago, Off-Campus Student Services launched a small scale survey about off-campus housing. We asked two questions: 1) What was the best experience you've had living off-campus, and 2) What's the most important thing for students to be aware of when choosing an off-campus rental? The survey was distributed through our website and via Facebook. We received over 150 responses, of which approximately 100 were complete and could be counted. What we learned (about our survey tool, participation rates, and the method of distributing the survey) will inform the development of a comprehensive off-campus housing information exchange resource for students. Look for a roll-out in early Fall 2019. In the meantime, check out the "best places" and "most important advice" results from our mini-survey:
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!
