Off-Campus Housing

Make it Easier to Find Off-Campus Housing

Each year we get requests from students, parents, faculty and staff seeking information about finding off-campus housing. In response, we have created a web-based service that provides students with a searchable database to find off-campus housing in the Philadelphia area.

Go to the Off-Campus Housing tool.

The user-friendly system includes:

  • A searchable housing database with photographs of the property, maps with proximity to UArts, direct links to a property’s email, application/lease, and website.
  • Message boards available for roommate postings, available or needed furniture, and sublet opportunities.
  • Roommate Matching services where students can search for a roommate(s) who is compatible with their needs.
  • Comparison reports which enable students to compare multiple listings side-by-side for the best deal and arrangement.
  • An extensive resource guide with sample leases, contact information for utilities, and much more.

This site is free for UArts students, parents, and new faculty and staff. Send questions or comments to or (215) 717-6970.

Note: While these resources are here to assist students in the process of finding off-campus housing in Philadelphia, the Office of Campus Life and the University of the Arts are not endorsing any listing on this page. UArts is not affiliated with any of the listed services and recommends exercising caution when making appointments and sharing personal information.
