DCRA’s off-campus housing initiative for the District’s university students operates with a mission to provide extensive access to tools, tips, and resources for renting off-campus housing in the District. As the regulatory agency for the District of Columbia, it is our desire, through this initiative, to ensure all student off-campus renters safe and habitable living quarters.
Have questions about anything from knowing your rights to requesting an inspection, our tips, tools, and resources will help guide you and make sure you are aware of resourceful access to district government assistance as you matriculate. NO student should rent off-campus housing and not know expectations of landlords and the renter.
