Off-Campus Housing

Off Campus Housing (OCH) System

Off-Campus Housing Services helps students transition to living off-campus through workshops, individual consolations, an a community rental database. OCH's work is to provide students with information, resources, and advising so they may make informed decisions about living off campus and help them become responsible and knowledgeable renters.


  • With OCH students can:
  • Search and view listings.
  • Submit roommates available and needed.
  • Submit subleases.



OCH does not complete housing applications, places students, take deposits, or work with landlords and property management companies on behalf of students. Housing and Residence life does not assume responsibility for a property or rental using resources we have provided.
