Meet with housing experts

The Division of Student Affairs is holding a housing fair for students to get informed when it comes to their housing needs. Students can view local properties, meet landlords and enter different free giveaways. If there are any students who want to live off-campus but aren’t sure how to, attending this will give a lot of information on how to go about doing that. This will be held on the main floor of the Kirkhof Center on Nov. 17 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For those who can’t attend this event, there is information about surrounding apartment complexes on their websites, however, speaking with representatives does help with any specific questions students may have when it comes to renting.
