Looking for Off-Campus Housing for Fall 2013?
Summer Housing Search is an intensive one-and-a-half day program to assist American University students with locating apartments and roommates in the Washington DC area. The program is designed to provide you with resources about the DC apartment market, tenants' rights and tips for living off-campus successfully as an AU student. We'll work with you to set-up appointments with area apartment management companies and we'll coordinate an opportunity to view a range of apartments. In addition to viewing apartments, you will have the opportunity to meet other American University students who are seeking prospective roommates.
During the Summer Housing Search, students and parents will be housed in the Anderson Residence Hall. It is recommended that you stay in the residence hall during this program so that you have an opportunity to get know the other students participating in the search for off-campus housing.
After completing the Summer Housing Search in 2012, when asked, 'Would you recommend that students attend this session next summer?' 100% of respondents noted 'agree' or 'strongly agree'. One participant wrote on her evaluation: "Overall, I found the housing program helpful because I came in with no idea what I wanted or would be practical for me, so I am definitely leaving with a much better idea."
Summer Housing Search will take place on Tuesday, July 9th and Wednesday, July 10th, 2013. This program is before the Transfer Transitions orientation program. While this program was created with transfer students and graduate students in mind – any American University student is welcome to participate!
If you would like to attend and not stay in the residence hall, please contact email@example.com.
