Off-Campus Life Resources and Housing Fair
As students start classes for the Spring 2021 semester, many of them may already be thinking about living arrangements for next fall. Off-Campus Life and the City of Fort Collins have worked together to help generate a variety of resources and opportunities including an Off-Campus Living Handbook, annual Housing Fair, and other online resources that can help students navigate finding housing off-campus.
Off-Campus Life Housing Fair: February 3, 2021 – 10:00am-4:00pm, Mountain Time
The Housing Fair brings together property management companies, landlords, realtors, other community resources, and Colorado State University offices to inform students about their housing options and how to successfully live off campus. In turn, it provides vendors with an excellent opportunity to tell students about their services. For the first time, this event will be virtual, and parents and families will be able to access the event!
Accessing the Housing Fair:
The platform will only be available during the event time.
CSU students will utilize their CSU ID to login by visiting https://rentalsearch.colostate.edu/.
Parents and family members will need to create a free account with Rent College Pads on the day of the event by visiting https://rentalsearch.colostate.edu/ .
Online Off-Campus Living Handbook
If your student is considering off-campus options, we invite you to check out the Off-Campus Living Handbook. Check out this quick video to learn more this helpful resource. The handbook offers tips and education of the first steps, leases, moving-in, city codes and ordinances as well as tips on being a good neighbor. Click here to access the Off-Campus Living Handbook.
Free Lease Review with Student Legal Services
In the state of Colorado, leases are legally binding as soon as they are signed. It is important for your student to slow the process down and take time to make sure they fully understand the terms and conditions of the lease before they sign. Student Legal Services at CSU offers free review of leases by appointment. Click here to learn more about Student Legal Services.
