Off-Campus Housing


When you start thinking about moving into an apartment, you'll realize there are a lot of items you'll need to buy, including furniture. Try to find a friend or relative looking to get rid of furniture, and check out garage sales, local thrift stores and furniture rental stores. But be careful if you don't know where the furniture comes from — it could be infested with pests like bedbugs, which are difficult to exterminate.

Marquette does not endorse or recommend any of the companies listed.
