Off-Campus Services for Students

Off-Campus Housing Services within Housing & Residence Life provides resources for students looking to live off campus.

Learn more about navigating the search process, living in the city, staying involved on campus, and using resources related to your student rights as a tenant. Whether you are looking to move off campus, find a new apartment, or want to learn more about navigating life in DC, use the resources provided to you as an AU student.

Because on-campus housing is only guaranteed for first- and second-year undergraduate students who meet all deadlines, many American University students, including graduate and Washington College of Law students, live off campus in the DC-metropolitan area.
