Utah State Off-Campus Housing Guide When to search
If you’re a student of Utah State and you’re looking to get out of the dorms in the fall semester, you’ll want to begin your search for a home after you get back from spring break. Those looking to live alone have a few weeks more than those looking to round up some friends and live in a larger home because townhouses and stand-alone homes go more quickly than one bedroom and studio apartments, especially USU married housing. Either way, try to get a lease signed before the end of the semester!
