UA to host off-campus housing fair

The Ferguson Center will be holding an off-campus housing fair Nov. 4 starting at 10 a.m. The fair will include over 25 different off campus options, and students will be able to ask different questions and get information about what each location offers. Julie Elmore, assistant director for Off-Campus Housing said now is the time to be looking for housing options. “We suggest that students look now then go home at Thanksgiving and discuss what their options are with their parents or another adult that may be helping them with their living expenses,” Elmore said. Properties will also include all those shown during the Off Campus Bus Tour held back Oct.
