Please note that the listing of off-campus residential properties is provided for informational purposes only and does not imply endorsement or recommendation of any off-campus residential property for security, safety, or suitability by the University. It is the responsibility of the prospective tenant to investigate security, safety and suitability of any off-campus residential property. ODU is not affiliated with any landlord that lists available property including ODUrent.




Prepare to Live Off-Campus





Live Responsibly


If you have never rented before, you may not fully understand your responsibilities and resources as renters. Often, first-time off-campus renters are faced with many questions:

  • How can I stay safe off-campus?
  • Where can I turn if I have an issue with my landlord?
  • When should I put trash out?
  • How can I get along with my neighbor?

Check out the following resources, which will guide you as you navigate the off-campus experience.
