Students, faculty and staff who are thinking about living in University City can turn those thoughts into action at two housing fairs April 6 and 7.
Tuesday's Renters' Housing Fair, sponsored by the Office of Off-Campus Living, puts potential renters in touch with area landlords, tenant-rights groups, utilities and other organizations that provide services for students living off-campus. The fair takes place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Locust Walk.
On Wednesday, the Office of Community Housing holds its annual Home Buyers' Housing Fair from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Faculty Club's Alumni Hall. Here, faculty and staff can meet with real estate agents, bankers, insurance agents and more. Would-be buyers can also obtain copies of their credit reports for $2 and fill out a survey for a chance to win prizes.
For information on these fairs, call the Office of Off-Campus Living at 898-8500 or the Office of Community Housing at 898-7422.
