The College recognizes that there are mutual benefits if faculty and employees live near the center of campus life. Consequently, properties acquired adjacent to the campus are maintained to accommodate new employees moving to the Easton area. The College currently owns a limited number of apartments and houses that are available for rent to employees of the College. The College housing rental program is administered through the Business Services office in Finance & Business.

It should be noted, however, that housing is the employee’s, not the College’s, responsibility. While the Rental Property office does not assume the responsibility for finding rental units for new appointees, the College has contracted with a local realtor able to show the available College’s properties and properties owned by others to prospective tenants.

College-owned housing is not guaranteed with availability awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. If interested, employees should complete the Interest Form indicating needs and move-in date desired to be included on the list of interested employees. As properties become available, the property is offered to the first name on the list if the property fits his/her need.
