Off Campus Housing Resources

In response to the growing number of students moving off-campus, we are placing a greater focus on off-campus housing resources, aimed at facilitating smooth transitions for students moving out of the residence halls. If you find yourself in need of off-campus housing, the numerous ways we can help you with this process include the following:

  • Off-Campus Housing Posting Site: The Off Campus Housing Postings page  is a great resource that allows you to explore available housing in the metro DC area as well as connect with potential roommates or sublets. Click on the Off-Campus Housing Postings link to access this.
  • Off-Campus Housing Workshops:  The workshops, usually given during the spring, cover topics such as: off-campus housing options, working with landlords, financial planning, transportation services in DC, and the "ins & outs" of signing a lease. Additional workshops can be provided to groups of 5 or more students. Contact us to learn about our next scheduled workshop and/or click on the "Moving-On, Moving-Off Workshops " link to access an electronic copy of the Powerpoint presentation.
  • Individual Consultations: The consultations provide students with an opportunity for more individualized guidance regarding housing options, financial planning, leases, and neighborhood analysis. The off-campus housing coordinator for Housing & Dining Programs is available to meet with you to develop a specific plan to facilitate a smooth transition to off-campus living. Please click on the Individual Consult Request link and fill out the web form to schedule an individual consult.We will continue to develop resources for students living off-campus and will communicate any new programs or opportunities with you directly.  

If you have any questions or suggestions regarding the off-campus housing resources available to you, please feel free to contact us at (202) 885-3370 or via email at offcampushousing@american.edu.

Sincerely,

Housing & Dining Programs
