Mission Statement

"Educating and supporting students in their development of independent life skills"

We accomplish this by:

  • Helping students make informed choices about housing and roommates
  • Encouraging students to become knowledgeable and responsible tenants
  • Assisting students in gaining the proficiency to solve problems when landlord and roommate difficulties arise
  • Advocating an off-campus student perspective to landlords as well as city policy makers
  • Developing student awareness of community values and responsibilities
  • Creating valuable partnerships with community stakeholders

Diversity Statement

Off-Campus Housing & Neighborhood Relations offers a broad range of programs, opportunities, and resources to students seeking housing off-campus, educates students in understanding their rights and responsibilities as tenants, and assists students in resolving landlord/tenant problems and/or roommate conflicts. Off-Campus Housing is an advocate and housing resource for students, faculty, and staff of all races, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, and religious and political belief, gender, age, class, familial status, or mental or physical disability. Off-Campus Housing is fully committed to equal and fair access to housing for all students and to assist wherever possible to build bridges of respect, tolerance, and understanding in our off-campus community and between our students.

The Division of Student Affairs at CU Boulder values the diverse backgrounds, histories, identities and life experiences of every member of our community.  We strive toward inclusive excellence in making our policies, processes, and actions socially just and equitable. We celebrate and embrace differences. We are committed to welcoming and including diverse groups and perspectives in building a climate in which all members can thrive in an environment where they feel at home, welcome and safe.
