Off-Campus Move Outs… Moving in the Right Direction
October 2 @ 3:00 pm - 4:20 pm EDTFree
Many colleges and universities have mastered on-campus move-out diversion, but off-campus student move-out is a much less tackled problem. Apartments, condos and single-family homes located off-campus generate different (and often bulkier) materials, and often place large burdens on city/county staff. This webinar will explore three different city-university partnership case studies to share successes, challenges and lessons learned from community wide off-campus move-outs.
