Off Campus Housing Referral Service

Kent State Tuscarawas is a regional campus and does not have on campus housing units. Rather, students commute to and from campus. The Off Campus Housing Referral Service exists to provide students with the means of locating affordable, clean and safe living environments. Living close to campus allows students to have more time to devote to their academic studies and become connected to university and campus life.

The information and handbook provided below were created to assist students in locating off campus housing and navigating the landlord-tenant relationship. It should not be considered legal advice. Students are encouraged to consult independent legal means should any questions or concerns arise during the course of the landlord-tenant relationship.
