What We Offer

We have information regarding municipal, cultural, social and safety issues to help you make the most of living off-campus. We also serve as a resource for both students who currently live off-campus, as well as those who are thinking of moving off-campus. While  we do not make living arrangements for off-campus students, we do provide students with information on what is available. Students should contact landlords and potential roommates directly.
 
Our site offers guidance regarding transportation, computerized housing lists, and an off-campus living guide. We encourage all potential off-campus students to review this guide. Our office is located on the 1st floor of the YMCA Building. For more information stop in or call 662.325.3611
