UA students invited to off-campus living fair on Oct. 15

Students preparing to move off campus are invited to learn about local housing options at the Off-Campus Living Fair, set for Wednesday, Oct. 15 from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the International Connections Lounge in the Arkansas Union.

The event is hosted twice each year by Off Campus Connections and the City of Fayetteville’s Community Resources division to help students start thinking about options for the next semester.

Representatives from 14 local apartment complexes will be in attendance, along with city staff, Ozark Transit, Credit Counseling of Arkansas, and other outside organizations. Campus groups like UA Transit and Parking, University Housing, and Chartwells Dining will also be available for questions.

“Off Campus Connections is excited to host this event each semester in order to bring many options to students at one time, relieving them of having to drive around town to investigate their choices,” said Samantha Fehr, coordinator of traditional commuter programs. “We highly encourage students to physically visit any living arrangement before signing a lease, but this event can help them narrow down their choices.”

Students in attendance can enter to win Visa and Starbucks gift cards, Beats headphones, a television, Razorback-themed gift baskets, and more.
