Off-Campus Housing

Off-campus housing is also available for students that are interested in living in Ely or the surround communities. As an off campus student, a student is responsible for providing and maintaining all of their own living arrangements. These students are still eligible to purchase a meal plan from our food services department. While as a college we recognize there are several in town renters that enjoy working with our students, we do not maintain, evaluate, or recommend any off campus housing. However, we do maintain a list of renters who have contacted Vermilion with off-campus housing options.
