There is nothing more important than a good, safe, secure home.

Welcome to the Educated Renter Certificate Program!

Finding housing in the city of San Luis Obispo can be a challenge. Our goal is to help educate students on ways to become an ideal rental applicant. While property management companies make decisions based on income, credit, and rental history, the Educated Renter Certificate will set you apart from other applicants. 

It is also important that you note the distinction between living on-campus to off-campus in the San Luis Obispo community. This program will be helpful in making that transition more successful.

The Educated Renter Certificate Program offers a comprehensive overview of your rights and responsibilities as a renter, as well as information about resources and related policies.
