ASUM Off-Campus Renter Center to Host Housing and Community Resources Fair

April 02, 2015

MISSOULA – The Associated Students of the University of Montana Off-Campus Renter Center will host its annual Housing and Community Resources Fair on Tuesday, April 7. The event will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in UM’s University Center Atrium.

The event educates current and potential student renters on the different options in Missoula rentals and links them to community resources available to off-campus students. Participating organizations include property management companies, renter’s insurance agencies, city agencies that offer services to renters, sustainability organizations, public assistance representatives and University agencies.

“The Housing and Community Resources Fair is the perfect one-stop shop for students looking for information about any aspect of living off-campus as a renter,” said Katherine Brady, director of the ASUM Off-Campus Renter Center. “The event brings property management companies and service providers together so that students can get all of their questions answered in one place.”

New to this year’s fair is a Roommate Speed Dating event that will take place from noon to 1:30 p.m. in University Center Room 331. This interactive session will give students the opportunity to interview other students looking to live off-campus in hopes that they will find someone compatible with their lifestyle and whose housing needs are in line with their own.

This event is free and open to students. For more information call Brady at 406-243-2017 or email katherine.brady@mso.umt.edu.
