    The best place to start your off-campus housing search is to read through the Off-Campus Housing Guidebook. You can review the online version or pick up a printed version around campus or in our office. This Guidebook offers information about:

    How to Search for a Place.
    What’s your budget? What kind of place are you looking for? Do you care about the location? What amenities are necessities?

    Leases. 
    A lease is a LEGAL DOCUMENT. Did you know that there are different types of leases? You can take a copy of your lease to Student Legal Services and have it reviewed, for free, before you sign it. Call (520) 621-ASUA (621-2782) to make an appointment. http://legal.asua.arizona.edu
