A Guide to Off-Campus Housing

Dear Prospective Off-Campus Student,

The Office of Student Affairs is pleased to provide you with a "Guide to Off-Campus Living." This guide is intended to provide answers regarding the search for an off-campus apartment, working with your landlord, understanding the lease and rental process, and establishing you in the off-campus community. Additionally, information regarding campus and community resources is provided to help you thrive in your off-campus space. It is our hope that the guide will help you access all that off-campus life has to offer and encourage you to take advantage of all the opportunities Cedar Crest provides.

Living off-campus means opportunities and responsibilities different from on-campus living. You are now a neighbor to others in a community with different perceptions and lifestyles. Within this guide, you will find tips to help you successfully make this transition.

If you have any questions, concerns, or comments regarding this guide or services for off-campus students, please contact the Office of Student Affairs at or 610-606-4680.
