The University of Memphis invites students, parents, faculty and staff to the 2012
Off-Campus Housing Information Fair Wednesday, March 21, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in
the University Center Ballroom. Admission is free; door prizes will be awarded.
This event is sponsored by the Adult and Commuter Student Services department, which
provides campus and community resources and services for commuter students - students
who choose not to live in University-owned housing.
The purpose of the fair is to provide students with an opportunity to obtain information
about off-campus housing options and services in the community. The University welcomes
the opportunity to connect with the Memphis and Mid-South community in a collaborative
effort to help students meet their housing needs. Participants may speak one-on-one
with representatives from local housing/apartment properties and other related vendors
about their amenities, services and specials.
In conjunction with the Off-Campus Housing Information Fair, Adult and Commuter Student
Services will also host the seminar “Understanding Leasing Agreements” Wednesday,
March 14, at 10:20 a.m. in the University Center, Room 338. 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. The facilitator will be Larry Baer, an attorney with the Baer Law Firm.
The Adult and Commuter Student Services department provides commuter students with
a supportive environment that promotes intellectual, social and academic growth and
development through services and programs that foster lifelong learning.
