Off-Campus Student Services (OCSS) offers a variety of programs and opportunities associated with living off campus focused on those who may be renting in or near the St. Thomas campus.
Off-Campus Student Services maintains a list of off-campus housing listings in the area around the St. Thomas campus. Students can search for properties by a variety of methods. The map feature on each property listing allows students to see the distance from the St. Paul or Minneapolis campus to the property.
Listings are submitted by landlords or property managers and approved for content by OCSS staff. Please note, the University of St. Thomas does not inspect, verify or endorse any rental listings that appear on this list. The appearance of any listing does not indicate any endorsement by the university.
The St. Thomas housing and roommate list is updated each weekday that new information is received. Please contact us at (651) 962-6138 or firstname.lastname@example.org with any comments, questions or concerns.
