Off-Campus Housing Services

In order to assist new, returning, and transfer students with their off-campus housing needs, UDC provides Off-Campus Housing Services. The mission of Off-Campus Housing Services is to acclimate students to the campus, the larger Van Ness community, Washington, D.C. at large. Specifically, these services are designed to support all students in making well-informed decisions when acquiring housing in and around the Washington, DC area and connect them to campus and community resources. These activities will help the Office of Residence Life and Off-Campus Housing Services to accomplish the following goals:

  • Provide personalized “high touch” assistance, information, and resources about urban living and housing resources
  • Promote student independence and community interdependence
  • Serve as liaisons between students, faculty, staff and community agencies

  • Organize activities and encourage off campus students to get involved in leadership opportunities on campus and in their communities
  • Strengthen neighbor relations by educating students on being “good neighbors”
