Off Campus Housing

Short Term Accommodations

Finding a long-term living situation off campus typically takes two-four weeks, depending on your budget and needs. You may need short-term accommodations while looking for a long-term place to live. Our list of Hotels and Motels can be excellent if you're looking for accommodations for less than a week nearby the university of within easy transportation reach. Since they can get very expensive, we have also put together a list of Hostels for you for cheaper accommodations in a more shared setting. And if you prefer a hotel setting for longer than a week, you can check out Residence Hotels in the city, which typically require a minimum of one week stay, but are significantly cheaper than most hotels and motels in the area.
