The University of Memphis will host two events this month related to off-campus housing.  The fifth annual Off-Campus Housing Information Fair will be Wednesday, March 25, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Michael D. Rose Theatre. Admission is free, and door prizes will be awarded.

Sponsored by Adult and Commuter Student Services (ACSS), the fair will provide students, faculty, and staff with information about off-campus housing options and services in the community.  Fair-goers will be able to speak personally with representatives from local housing and apartment properties and other related vendors about their amenities, services, and specials.

On March 18, in connection with the Off-Campus Housing Information Fair, ACSS will host a seminar, “Understanding Lease Agreements,” from 10:20 to 11:15 a.m. in Brister Hall, Room 220 (the multipurpose room). The seminar will focus on topics such as safety and security, tenant rights and responsibilities, lease agreements, what to look for during a housing search, and other subjects pertaining to off-campus housing. Seminar facilitators will be M. Michele Harris, residential development manager at Crye-Leike Property Management, and an attorney from Memphis Area Legal Services.

Adult and Commuter Student Services provides campus and community resources and services to non-traditional and traditional-age students who do not live in University-owned housing.

More information about both of these events is available by phone from Joy R. Stout or Heather Hampton at 901-678-2644 or via email at   More information is available online at
