Off-Campus Housing

Educated Renters Certificate Program

The Educated Renters Certificate Program is an online program that helps students get prepared to be renters and live off campus in the San Luis Obispo Community. Students who go through this online program will have the benefit of submitting a certificate with their rental application to participating landlords for consideration during the application process. Since the San Luis Obispo rental market is extremely competitive, we are offering this program as a resource to help our students secure housing.  Students will be given tips and information about the searching and application process in the rental market.  For more information, please email
