Finding housing off-campus can be an exciting and daunting experience all at the same time. To help you with the process, we have a few resources we encourage you to use. First, if you have any questions or would like to talk with someone about your decision to live off-campus, please contact our office at 410-617-5081 and ask to speak to the off-campus student contact. Second, there are a myriad of things for you to consider when choosing housing off-campus: Are utilities included? How much parking is available? What will the rent be? To help with these considerations, utilize this checklist prepared by New England Premiere. Bring the checklist with you while looking at different housing options, so you can easily organize the information and make the best decision for you and/or your roommates when it’s time to sign a lease!
Lastly, Loyola partners with http://www.Places4Students.com to provide you with local housing listings. This is a great place to find what housing is available to students in the area. Although the Office of Student Life is providing off-campus housing information as a courtesy service to students, Loyola University Maryland is not responsible for the safety and security of the housing listings posted on the http://www.Places4Students.com registry. As a Loyola student, we urge you to be diligent in inspecting any of these (and other) off-campus residences and to talk with your landlord about the terms of your lease agreement. In particular, we urge you to pay close attention to safety items such as security systems, fire and smoke alarms, and points of entry/exit. We strongly discourage you from living in a place that violates city zoning regulations. As always, we hope that your parents are involved in your decision making regarding your choice to live off-campus and that you contact Loyola University Maryland should you have any questions or concerns. And remember, once you sign a lease, your agreement is binding.
