Jamie DeLoma

Students seeking housing off campus next year are encouraged to attend Quinnipiac’s off-campus housing fair today and tomorrow in Alumni Hall from 10 a.m. through 2 p.m.

All students are invited, included undergraduate students, graduate students and law students. Fifteen different agencies are scheduled to be represented including local landlords, real estate agencies, and furniture rentals.

Students will receive packets of tips and information regarding moving off campus including recycling information, leasing and zoning in the town of Hamden.

Students should start thinking about moving off campus, according to Jodi Bailey, assistant director of residential life. By April students should have a solid place to live, according to Bailey.

The trend is to live off campus according to the assistant director of residential life. She said Quinnipiac’s off campus housing generally goes to sophomores who do not want to deal with housing lotteries. The university owns approximately 33 off campus properties that hold 120+ students.
