Off-campus FAQs

A couple friends and I are considering renting a property in the off-campus community; does the office offer resources for potential tenants?

Yes. Students who are eligible to move off-campus must attend an information session. The 60-minute consultation covers an overview of:

  • The community and neighborhood
  • La Salle’s Off-Campus behavior policy
  • Tips for safety
  • Security resources
  • Basic tenant knowledge

I am a community resident that would like to voice my concerns regarding a student rented property. Is there a formal process that I need to follow?

If your concern is urgent, please contact La Salle Public Safety at 215.951.1300. Our public safety officers patrol the off-campus community 24/7, and can speak with you to create a formal incident report. These reports are forwarded daily to our department. La Salle Public Safety documentation is necessary in our ability to maintain a fair and due process for holding individuals and houses accountable for disruptive behavior.  During business hours you may also contact the office at 215.991.2873 or email

Does La Salle University rent properties to students in the Off-Campus Community?

No. While there may be properties owned by La Salle, the University is not in the business of renting these properties to students.

How can I apply for Off-Campus Status?

If you are a residential student that has completed six semesters of on-campus living, then you are eligible to move off-campus. You must complete the Housing Exemption Form and the Housing Contract Release Form, which can be completed through the Residence Life and Housing Office.

Code of Conduct

La Salle University expects that students conduct themselves with honesty, integrity, civility, and citizenship both on and off campus. The University is committed to assisting neighborhood residents and students are expected to prevent and respond to disruptive incidents that may arise from student behavior in the local community.

Seriously disruptive behavior includes, but is not limited to:

  • Excessive and/or unreasonable noise
  • Large disruptive activities
  • Illegal use, sale, and/or distribution of alcohol or other drugs
  • Trash/littering
  • Rude and abusive language
  • Public urination or related violations of local community standards

Disciplinary investigation and charges will be initiated when the University becomes aware of such behavior in the surrounding community. Students’ responsibility in university disciplinary actions increases if the University becomes aware that they have not taken these steps to decrease the possibility of disruptive or dangerous behavior.
