Property Owner Resources

Off-Campus Housing Listings

EMU's Office of Government and Community Relations manages an online portal through which student and community members can search for and evaluate housing options. Our goal is to make this an exhaustive list of rental properties. We welcome the inclusion of our local property owners on this site.

How to include your property on our site:

  1. Listing your property on Rentlinx: We partner with the rental listing company Rentlinx to provide the listings on our site.
    1. If you have not already done so, you must list your property on their website. Instructions are included within.
    2. Request to be listed on EMU Off-Campus Housing Listing via Rentlinx.
  2. Filling out EMU's safety questionnaire: In an effort to help students make informed decisions on where to live, EMU has developed a questionnaire to provide information to students seeking rental housing off campus. Please fill out the safety questionnaire here for online submission.

  3. Providing a digital copy of the questionnaire:
    1. Notify staff that you have completed the questionnaire. Staff will then send you a PDF version of your completed questionnaire.
    2. Once you receive the questionnaire PDF, you must attach it to your listing. To do so, log on to Rentlinx and upload the PDF to the "Attachments & Links" section of your property listing.
    3. Notify staff that you have uploaded the questionnaire.
  4. Audit: Following the completion of the above steps, staff will audit the listing, and approve your listing if it meets the above criteria.
EMU Off-Campus Housing Fair

The EMU Off-Campus Housing Fair is held at the beginning of every calendar year to provide property owners in the community the opportunity to display to EMU students and employees information about their off-campus rental properties. Student Government and EMU will advertise the Fair extensively to the EMU community.

Details and registration information are available here.

Safety Questionnaire

Property owners advertising properties on EMU's Off-Campus Housing Listings, or at the Off-Campus Housing Fair will be required to provide a copy of a completed questionnaire about each property advertised. The property owner provides the information contained in the completed questionnaire. These materials are distributed by Eastern Michigan University only as an aid in searching for off-campus housing.

The questionnaire is available here for online submission.
