The ASUM Off-Campus Renter Center is a renter advocacy agency that empowers students to assert their rights, encourages neighborhood relationships, advocates for student renting rights policy, and assists students with the rental process.
Some management companies are now requiring potential renters to have a cosigner that lives in Missoula. So be sure to ask the landlord if this is a tenant requirement before paying the application fee.
This year for our "Shovels for Students" program, we loaned out our entire fleet of snow shovels free of charge to student renters whose landlords did not provide one. The program was made possible by the City of Missoula Office of Neighborhoods & Community Forum.
READ YOUR LEASE BEFORE YOU SIGN IT! All of it. In its entirety! Make sure you understand what exactly you are signing on to. Ask the landlord for clarification if necessary.
