The University of Akron's Off-Campus Housing Fairs are designed to provide UA students with a chance to find safe, affordable, and convenient housing in the Akron and surrounding areas. As part of the Housing Fairs, we will be showcasing housing vendors from both on- and off-campus. 

Many of our vendors will be have will have materials and information for students on their property, as well as the types of services and amenities that they offer. Additionally, we will have UA departments present to provide information on subjects such as: what to look for in a lease, taking proper safety precautions while living off-campus, tenant responsibilities, and much more!

How do I get to the Off-Campus Housing Fair?

The event will be held in the main Concourse area on the 2nd floor of the Student Union

How many students attend the Housing Fair?

Last year, we had over 400 students attend, with almost 20 off-campus housing vendors as well as numerous on-campus departments.

What should I bring to the fair?

If you are a University of Akron student, it's beneficial to have an idea in mind of the type of housing situation you are looking for (location, amenities, price, etc.).

If I am a housing vendor, how do I register for the event?

You can register as a housing vendor at the fair by signing up at through our online Off-Campus Living Vendor Registration page. Additionally, please reach out to Adam Hemminger at amh142@uakron.edu to discuss registration details, event information, and registration payment.
