Your guide to living off-campus

To get started, please choose from one of the sections available on the left. You can also download a collection of helpful checklists and print them off for your records.

This guide was created as a tool to help you understand your rights and legal obligations as a renter. It provides practical information and resources to help you have a safe, positive off-campus living experience and avoid common and sometimes costly mistakes. You will find downloadable checklists, as well as valuable information, to help you make the right choice for your living experience. However, nothing within this guide should be taken as legal advice. Read carefully, seek assistance, and keep good records.

Washington State University Off-Campus Housing service strongly encourages all tenants to rent only those spaces that are in full compliance with City of Pullman and the State of Washington codes and regulations. Tenants should always assess security measures (deadbolts, window locks, outside lights) and fire safety precautions (smoke detectors, fire extinguishers, and sprinkler systems) before signing a lease.
