There are many places to look at off campus apartments. Googling apartments available in Providence is a start, however you want to be sure that you are working with caring and legitimate landlords. RISD has partnered with JumpOffCampus.com to help students find apartments and learn about moving off-campus in Providence. You will find more tips and tricks on JumpOffCampus. You will also be able to see properties that are targeted toward college students in the area. risd.jumpoffcampus.com/
We also work closely with our colleagues at Brown University. They have an extensive list of off campus spaces. You can search here for something that fits your needs: http://www.brown.edu/Administration/Auxiliary_Housing/Listings/index.php
Does RISD have its own off-campus listing site?
NO. Many students have asked us about websites such as risdoffcampushousing.com, but we are unaffiliated with these organizations and can not speak to the quality or lack of quality in these units. Use your best judgement when connecting with leasing companies such as this.
