Living Off Campus
Fitchburg State University has developed a multi-tiered posting program in an effort to meet the needs of both students and landlords. The University expects rental accommodations for students to be in an acceptable condition, that fulfills relevant requirements for residential tenancies and that the relationship between the landlord and the students is open, reasonable and fair and consistent with applicable laws.
Fitchburg State University requires that all residential property owners seeking to post their services, electronically or otherwise, through the University first confirm that they will comply with all the applicable laws, codes and regulations regarding building access and safety, health and sanitation and tenancy and that they will observe and be bound by University requirements, which may be amended from time to time.
