Off-Campus Housing

Finding off-campus housing requires a great deal of planning and effort. Off-Campus Housing is here to guide you on the path to finding your new home.

Moving Off Campus? Start Here!

Off-Campus Housing Services is dedicated to providing valuable information and resources to assist students, faculty and staff at Salisbury University in making informed decisions regarding location, safety, rights and responsibilities in their off-campus housing choices.

In addition to the information provided here, check out SU’s Commuter Connections for helpful worksheets and brochures on making sure your new place – and your new roommate or roommates – is a good fit as well as programs for navigating the world of campus when you don’t live there.

Get the Guide!

We’ve provided a one-stop resource for living off campus, including information on renters insurance, understanding your lease, roommate questionnaires and more. Everything you need to know about living off campus can be found in the Off-Campus Housing Guide.

Off-Campus Housing Fair

At the Housing Fair, you will have the opportunity to meet with local rental agents who share information about properties around the Salisbury area. Sponsored by our Student Government Association, Commuter Connections and Off-Campus Housing Services, this is a great resource for students who are thinking about moving off campus into the community.

The Housing Fair is not a place for students to go to sign leases or feel any pressure to do so. This is a chance to ask questions, find out information and schedule possible tour dates.

Upcoming Housing Fairs

Thursday, November 15
Wednesday, December 5
Wicomico Room, Guerrieri Student Union 135 • 11 a.m.-2 p.m.

Safety/Emergency Information

Whether you are on campus or at your place of residence, it is important that you are fully aware of what to do in the case of an emergency. Learn how to stay prepared for any emergency encounter you might face.

Seven Helpful Steps Series

We’ve created a series of brochures to guide you through living off campus, living off campus safely and being a good neighbor.

Rental Resources

Rights and Responsibilities

Once you have found a rental that seems to meet your needs, it’s important that you understand your rights and those of your landlord and neighbors before entering into any written rental agreement or lease. Considering the rights of all involved will encourage fair treatment of you as a tenant and a neighbor, as well as develop a positive relationship between you and your landlord and neighbors, and provide good references for your future use.
