Prizes offered at Renter Education Workshop

Unsure about your housing plans for next year? Debating whether to live on or off campus? Have questions about off-campus housing or the rental process? Want a chance to win $500 toward rent or other prizes?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, save some stress and attend the Renter Education Workshop from 7 to 8 p.m. Monday, Feb. 15, in O’Shaughnessy Educational Center auditorium.

The Renter Education Workshop is open to all students but intended for students who are considering renting off-campus properties or weighing their housing options for the next academic year.

During this workshop, students will learn about rental contracts and leases, how to be a good neighbor, the myths of living off campus and many other topics related to renting.

Take advantage of the chance to win one of many prizes, including $500 toward your first month’s rent or on-campus housing costs. (The payment will be made directly to the landlord or Residence Life). In addition, 20 gift cards to Target, IKEA, Best Buy and the UST Bookstore, ranging from $50 to $200 in value, will be raffled.

Snacks and beverages will be served after the session, and tables will be set up with additional information regarding on-campus living.

This event is co-sponsored by the Commuter Center and Off-Campus Services, USG and STAR.
