Graduate Housing

While the Office of Residence Life–Student Affairs maintains a listing of local property management companies that students have used in the past to secure off-campus housing, Chatham University cannot attest to the best off-campus housing options for students. Instead, we encourage students to make the best choice for them based on their personal and financial needs. 

Graduate students are encouraged to contact the individual property management companies to arrange tours and obtain further details. Students have also used the following online resources in the past: Apartments.comTruliaZillow, and Realtor.com.
