Survey of Student Off-Campus Housing Referral Services.
Black, Kaaren E.; Ross, Frank
Central Oregon Community College conducted telephone surveys of 12 postsecondary institutions in California, Colorado, Oregon, and Washington to gather information on off-campus housing referral services. General findings, based on survey responses and materials sent by the student services departments and housing administrators at the colleges, included the following: (1) of the 12 institutions contacted, 11 indicated that their off-campus student housing referral services were not directly administered by their housing departments; (2) 11 of the institutions contacted employed student work-study personnel to work at off-campus student housing referral operations; and (3) 4 of the 12 off-campus housing referral operations contacted operated computer-based databases. The document gives a description of each of the college's referral services, which included publications and information sources available upon request, the name and number of persons to contact for information, student and landlord legal services, and a description of the types of housing listings. How these listings are acquired, the methods used by schools to advertise housing listings, and a description of the database are included. (WJT)
