interested in off-campus housing for the fall semester should begin
their housing search as early as late-May, and no later than
early August. Locating housing requires an in-person
visit to the city. The search for the perfect facility for
you may take as little as two days or as long as two weeks, so it
is wise not to wait until the last minute to start looking!
It is important to realize that a housing search must be conducted
in person, because most landlords will not rent a room or an
apartment without meeting you face to face. This means that,
generally, a friend is unable to find something for you.
