CIM guarantees on-campus housing for first and second year undergraduate students. All others generally live off-campus. While the securing of suitable housing is the students responsibility, CIM is happy to assist with their search, and provides a number of resources for this purpose. If you are looking for roommates or housing as close as possible to CIM, checkout the CIM student Facebook pages first! Current CIM students are the best source for finding out which places and management companies are best to rent from!

Areas around CIM that are good places to start looking:

  • Uptown
  • Coventry
  • Hessler Street
  • Cleveland Heights (Cedar/Fairmount and Cedar/Lee areas particularly)
  • Shaker Heights/Shaker Square
  • University Circle

Great places, but a bit of a drive:

  • Gordon Square
  • Ohio City
  • Lakewood

Housing FAQs & Resources

Am I eligible to live off campus?
Undergraduates must live in CIM housing for the first two years of their collegiate studies. Due to limits on available housing in residence halls, second year undergraduates may be released from the housing requirement. Students, for whom the Cleveland area is their permanent home, are automatically released in the second year if they elect to commute from the home address. Transfer students who have already completed two years of collegiate study are also automatically released.

Graduate students live off-campus. In rare circumstances CIM may be able to provide space in a residence hall to a graduate student, please contact the CIM Office of Student Affairs if you would like to be considered for on-campus housing.

Will living off campus affect my financial aid?
For an undergraduate student, living off campus will change the budget used to calculate your financial aid package. If you are receiving any grant money in your package, living off campus could affect the amount you receive. Check with the Office of Financial Aid prior to requesting a release. Financial aid for graduate students living off campus should not be effected.

Rental Basics

Do you know what to look for in a lease, and the kinds of questions you need to ask a prospective landlord? Learn all you need to know about the basics, including security deposits, inspections, and overall maintenance and security. We offer a list of market prices for off-campus apartments, homes and other housing.

Your Search

It is wise to begin your search three to six weeks before you need to move. Most rentals begin on the first of the month. While it is possible to find an apartment in a day or two, it is not recommended that you wait until the last minute. Fall semester housing listings are usually available in the summer months.
