Managing Your College Life:
Your Money – Your Housing – Your Time
Going to college offers many new experiences. For many students, college is the first time they have ever had control of their own money, housing, and time.
Managing Your College Life: Your Money — Your Housing — Your Time is an online presentation that helps students better manage and survive their first years of college.
Through this presentation, you will become and stay a responsible renter by learning how to
- Communicate effectively with roommates and property managers.
- Manage money resources wisely to pay rent on time every month.
- Choose adequate, safe, and affordable housing.
- Move through the rental process — screening, lease agreements, security deposits, and moving out.
- Maintain a home.

The materials in this online presentation are adapted from RentWise, a tenant education certificate program.
