OFF CAMPUS HOUSING OFFICE
What it is
The Off Campus Housing Office and Ithaca's Tenant Union will help guide you through the process of finding housing off-campus. The office helps with budgeting and reading leases, conflict mediation (between roommates), and issues with landlords.
The off-campus housing office will help with dispute resolution, but cannot give legal advice.
TIPS from the office
"Don't rush for housing! Wait and negotiate."
