Off-Campus Living works closely with the International Center to assist in serving every student in their off-campus needs.
If you have not secured permanent housing by the time of your arrival, the University of Akron teams with community partners to match you with a host family for your first few days in Akron while you search for permanent housing.
FREE LIMITED temporary housing is available during the first few days after your arrival. A 10-day advance notice is required to the host families.
First Weekers' Program provides a limited number of host families for your first few days in Akron for a fee of $75 and requires at least a two-week advance registration.
Other temporary options are local hotels.
If you are looking to live off-campus in the Akron area, you can find listings at our housing webpage.
