RENTALS STILL AVAILABLE for 2016-2017 TERM
IT’S STILL A RENTER’S MARKET! There are many more quality rentals available then there are students to rent them. New listings continue to be posted January through as late as August for the following school year. Property owners will sometimes reduce rent prices, include certain utilities and offer more flexible lease terms as the new Fall Term draws near.
LOOKING TO RENT FOR THE NEXT SCHOOL YEAR OR JUST FOR THE SUMMER -
Be sure to check the Rental Resources website often for the latest listings!!!
ANNUAL HOUSING FAIR
The Office of Rental Resources sponsors a Housing Fair to be held in October of each year. Our fair is the easiest and most convenient way for students to start their housing search and collect a variety of information on available properties and services. If you are not sure where you’re living next semester or next year, or if you just want to learn more about preparing to move off campus you do not want to miss this event! The Housing Fair is not a place for students to go to sign leases or feel any pressure to do so. Rather, it is an opportunity to ask questions, find out information and learn more about local options.
The City of Platteville and UW-Platteville campus continue to be a target for rental scams, with college students who advertise sublets frequently being targeted. Please follow these simple common-sense rules to avoid being a victim:
- Deal locally with people you can meet in person.
- DO NOT rent to someone who wants to take the apartment without viewing it in person first.
- Fake cashier checks and money orders are common. Banks will cash them and then hold you responsible when the fraud is discovered weeks later.
- Never give out financial information.
