We support students looking for off-campus housing, moving off-campus and living off-campus. Check out our Off-Campus Living Guide, attend a Housing Fair, stop by our Office in the Russell House West Wing Lower Level to speak with an Off-Campus Community Ambassador, find off-campus housing, get answers to frequently asked questions, and much more!  Please let us know how we can help!

Attention City of Columbia renters!

Columbia has a new ordinance as of July 1 to better regulate rental property maintenance and tenant behavior. More information can be found on the Code Enforcement website. For your well-being, please inspect your property using this checklist. If your property does not meet these standards, provide your landlord written notice and call Code Enforcement at (803) 545-3430. If your landlord fails to make the repairs, reach out to Student Legal Services. Under the law, the actions of you and your guests can impact your ability to continue to reside at the property. Follow these tips for being a good neighbor to comply with the ordinance. Please contact us with any questions!
