"Read the Lease" Campaign kicks off now!

Published October 1, 2015

Approximately 2/3 of the Appalachian State University main campus student population -- about 11,000 students -- live off-campus in Boone and the surrounding community.  Each semester, students who have questions or problems related to a landlord-tenant issue seek advice from the Student Legal Clinic. As we move further into fall semester, students are already beginning to think about housing options for the next academic year (2016-17). The Office of Off-Campus Community Relations and the Student Legal Clinic want to make sure that students who are considering moving off-campus next year -- as well as those who are already living off-campus, but may be looking to move to a different apartment or rental house -- have important information about how to choose the right off-campus housing for their needs. One of the easiest and most important things you can do before you make a decision about off-campus housing is to read the lease! To avoid surprises, extra costs and legal problems down the road, make sure you read and understand your lease before you sign it. If you have questions, or just want to go over the lease with someone who is familiar with legal documents, a licensed attorney can review your lease for free through the Student Legal Clinic located in Suite 324 of the Student Union.  Just call (828) 262-8284 for an appointment. 

You'll be seeing this message around campus over the next few months and into the spring semester.  Also, look for more information (coming soon!) about educational programs to help you choose the right housing for you.
