There is a two year on-campus living requirement for all Seattle University students, for more information see the University Housing Policy.
In order to assist students who are searching for off-campus apartments we will be hosting some Off-Campus Housing Workshops as well as an Off-Campus Housing Fair.
Off-Campus Housing Workshops
The Off-Campus Housing Workshops were hosted by one of Housing's Assistant Directors, Sue Ann Huang. She spent the first hour presenting information regarding finding off-campus housing. In the last 30 minutes, there was a panel with current students who live off-campus who spoke to some of their experiences with looking for housing. The presentation from the workshops can be found here: Off Campus Housing Workshop
Off-Campus Housing Fair
The Off-Campus Housing Fair provided a space for students to talk with some property managers and landlords about some potential housing options. A list of apartments near campus that students can contact can be found here: Off Campus Apartments List (Updated 9/14/2017)
Seattle University has also partnered with Places4Students.com, a company that specializes in providing Off-Campus Housing solutions for post-secondary students. This service is free for all students to use as an effective method of finding a place to live off-campus or finding a roommate. Students need not register to search listings. Landlords can list properties at very competitive rates (less than most other mediums of advertising).
Housing & Residence Life does not endorse any landlord, management company, or individual who lists with the Places4Students. Instead, we provide a venue for such listings through a landlord registration program, and a location for the University community to seek out available off-campus housing in the Seattle area.
Neither Seattle University nor Housing & Residence Life guarantees in any manner the service or quality of service offered by listed landlord, management companies, or individuals. Students, parents, and other members of the University and Seattle community are under no obligation to utilize the Off-Campus Housing services or to rent from companies or individuals listed with the Housing & Residence Life Office.
