  • Start & end date of lease
  • Rent amount, due date, how to pay

Click here to nominate a student or neighbor!
Living off-campus has a lot of responsibilities, like paying rent and bills, commuting to class or co-op, and respecting the local neighborhood. Recognizing this, we want to honor a student who lives off campus, upholds their responsibilities and exemplifies being a good neighbor. 
We also want to recognize a permanent resident neighbor who is a good neighbor!
Deadline to nominate is February 28th

Ask a Roaming Husky
Dear Roaming Husky  
Dear Roaming Husky
,
I'm looking for a new apartment and want to know how to choose a good realtor. Where do I start?
- Hunter
 
Dear Hunter,
Before you choose a realtor, first decide what you are looking for. How many bedrooms do you want? What is your budget? Next, find preferred realtors on our apartment search database or at our Apartment Fair on Feb 5th. A good realtor is one who explains the process, listens to what you are looking for and works to find you the best match!
