Off-campus Housing Assistance

Off-Campus Student Services offers housing assistance as a free service for VCU students, faculty and staff. It is important for all first time apartment, or home renters to get educated about the process and procedures, pitfalls and triumphs of living independently off campus. If you have never rented an apartment or lived on your own, start by getting educated. Stop by the Off-Campus Student Services Office or attend the spring programs for housing education and resources.
