Off-Campus Student Services
The Bryan-College Station community offers a variety of options for living off-campus. Student Life provides resources and information to students who are preparing to or are currently living off-campus. Students are encouraged to stay informed about best practices for living off-campus, whether you are new to living off-campus or continuing off-campus. Three key areas for living off-campus include:
- Being a good Neighbor: This means staying informed and complying with city rules and community standards. Frequent city code violations include:
- "No More than 4" - Per city ordinance, no more than four unrelated individuals can reside in a single-family home. So, Remember Me +3 before you sign a lease.
- Noise - Community ordinances are clear that it is unlawful for anyone to engage in "loud noise" that, because of its volume level, duration, or character, annoys, disturbs, injures, or endangers the comfort, health, peace, or safety of reasonable persons of ordinary sensibilities within the limits of the City, especially during the hours of 10 p.m. to 6 a.m.
- Trash - After collecting trash, tenants have 12 hours to remove the sanitation container from the street.
- Parking - Not following parking rules could result in a parking violation or an emergency vehicle being unable to access someone in need. Do your part in being a good neighbor and make sure you are aware of parking guidelines.
- Searching for Housing: There are plenty of options to live in the Bryan/College Station community. AggieSearch is a fully searchable database that allows students, parents, faculty/staff and guests to find off-campus housing that meets their needs. Visit https://aggiesearch.tamu.edu/ to learn more.
- Leasing 101: Securing your new place in Aggieland means signing a lease. Reading and understanding the lease is critical before signing a lease. Leases are legally binding in Texas and there are minimal means to get out of the lease. Remember these key tips before signing a lease:
- Read everything
- All requests should be put in writing
- Keep a copy of everything
- Don't be afraid to ask questions
