                The University of Georgia

The University of Georgia’s motto, to teach, to serve, and to inquire
into the nature of things, reflects the University’s integral and
unique role in the conservation and enhancement of the state’s
and nation’s intellectual, cultural, and environmental heritage.
Founded in 1785, the University of Georgia, a land-grant and sea-
grant university with statewide commitments and responsibilities,
is the state’s oldest, most comprehensive, and most diversified
institution of higher education.




                      Pillars of the Arch

Without each of these pillars, the Arch would lose its strength and
balance. Likewise, all three qualities are necessary for us to be
strong and complete citizens.

Wisdom challenges us to apply the lessons we receive inside
and outside the classroom to our everyday lives. Wisdom
encourages discovery and expression, celebrating the diversity within
our community.

Justice leads us to be fair in our dealings, accountable for our actions,
responsible for ourselves, and empathetic for others. Justice requires
honesty, establishing credibility, and integrity for our community and
ourselves.

Moderation compels us to act with civility, bolstering our faith in
others and the faith others have in us. Moderation accentuates
our self-respect, promotes responsible citizenship, and enhances
pride in our university.

              Student Affairs Learning and
                Development Objectives

Research has shown that 80% of collegiate learning occurs outside
the classroom. As a student, how you choose to spend your free
time will depend on how you want to develop as a person and will
determine whether your experience at UGA is commonplace or
extraordinary.

The Division has identified eight main areas, known as Student
Affairs Learning and Development Objectives, in which it seeks to
facilitate student learning and develpment. Students who connect
and engage in our programs and services will have a deliberately
structured curriculum that advances their knowledge and enables
them to succeed in these key areas:


Leadership
Self-awareness; direct and honest communication; respect for others;
building trust; visualization of group purpose and desired outcomes;
teamwork; risk taking; role modeling/mentoring; commitment to civic
responsibility; initiation of change for the common good; responsibility
and accountability


Intercultural Competence
Awareness, understanding, and appreciation of the differences in
and contributions of others; acknowledgement of and respect for
diverse viewpoints; understanding one’s own identity and culture;

             Beyond the Arch: A Guide to
                 Living Off Campus
Living off campus may be the right choice for you, one that suits
your personal need for independence, freedom, and privacy. It
is also a choice that comes with increased responsibility to be a
respectful member of your neighborhood and community.

This guide is designed to be a resource to help guide you through
the processes involved in living off campus while a student at the
University of Georgia.

The information in this publication is provided to help you to be an
informed citizen and good neighbor of the Athens-Clarke County
(ACC) community. It does not contain all the rules of law governing
county citizens. Rather, it contains information that will be helpful
to you in avoiding potential problems that may arise when leasing
an apartment or house. This publication is not intended to serve as
a substitute for legal advice. If you encounter a legal problem, it is
advisable to contact an attorney before taking any action.



                     Starting Your Search

How do I determine my needs?

The first step to apartment/house-hunting is to make a list of your
“must-haves”—not your wish list, but what you truly need. It is
important to write out your list before beginning your search.

As a prospective tenant, you have the right to ask the landlord
questions. Before signing a lease, be sure that you are satisfied
with the apartment, services provided by the landlord, and the
security of the unit. Here are some items to remember:

Location: How close is the apartment to public transportation and
your job?

Costs: What is the length of the lease? How much is the monthly
rent? Are any utilities included in the rent? How much is the security
deposit? When is the rent due, and are there late charges?


                                 26
Conveniences: Is there a laundry facility on the premises or
nearby? Do I have to buy my own washer and dryer? How close
is the nearest grocery store?

Maintenance: Find out what repairs, cleaning, changing of locks,
and normal maintenance the landlord will do.


What types of housing are available?

There are typically several options for rental housing, and each has
its own advantages and disadvantages. You will need to evaluate
each type based on your determined needs.

Apartment—an individual rental unit within a building, separated
from other units, with private cooking and living facilities.

Studio—a small apartment with kitchenette, bathroom, and a
combined living room/bedroom area.

House—single building where the entire building is for rent.

Shared Rentals—individual room listings in houses and apartments
where others already live. You will move into a situation with others
you may not know. Typically, there are two common types of shared
rentals. In one situation you may rent a room in a house from an
individual or family. In the other situation you may work through
an apartment agency that will find you a room in an apartment. In
both situations, you will usually have your own room and share the
kitchen, living room and other common areas.


How do I find a roommate?

Choosing a roommate is not as simple as many people think. Once
you’ve signed a lease, you will share a major portion of your time
and personal space with someone for the length of the contract.
Naturally, you want to be compatible with your roommate(s), and
that means you will need to determine what you’re looking for in a
roommate and what kind of roommate you will be. There are many
factors to consider. The link below contains some information to
get you started:
http://www.uga.edu/housing/prosstudents/relationships.html


                                 27
     Leases, Security Deposits, and Responsibilities
                       for Repairs

Most landlords require a written lease. A lease is a legally binding
agreement that outlines rights and responsibilities of both the
landlord and the tenant(s). A security deposit is money that protects
landlords against damage beyond normal wear and tear and funds
clean up of the rental if necessary. Responsibilities for repairs can
vary by jurisdiction and by the terms of your lease.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding a lease, security
deposit, or responsibilities for repairs, you should seek legal advice
immediately; these can be complex legal issues.



            Safety and Security Considerations

When looking into rental properties there are some basic safety
features and policies that you should consider before signing a
lease, including but not limited to:

•   Make sure your apartment or house has new or re-keyed locks.
    With renters constantly changing in these types of housing, you
    should ask the landlord to either change the locks or have them
    re-keyed. If the landlord is not willing to do so, ask if you can
    make the changes and then provide him/her with copies of the
    new key.

•   Doors should have dead bolt locks and one-way security
    peepholes; windows should have working locks and appropriate
    coverings (shades, blinds, curtains) to prevent someone from
    looking into the apartment or house.

•   Ask management about the availability of extra keys to your
    apartment. If there are extra keys, ask how they are secured
    and who has access to them.

•   Doors should be made of metal or solid wood construction.

•   Sliding glass doors should be secured with pins through the
    frame or have a “Charlie bar” locking device.




                                 28
•   Apartments located on the second floor or higher can be safer.
    Being on the ground floor makes entry through windows easy.
    Ground floor windows should be secured with pins through the
    frame or key lock latches.

•   Visit at night to ensure parking areas, hallways, and walkways
    are well lit and afford a clear line of sight to your apartment
    door.

•   Bushes and shrubbery should be well maintained and cut back
    below window height to reduce the risk of attackers hiding in
    them.

•   Is there on-sight security? Is there a neighborhood watch
    program?

•   Have there been any burglaries in the complex, and if so, how
    did the burglars gain entry?

•   Ask management if they have intrusion alarms installed in
    individual units or if they have a policy against installing them.
    Many complexes can turn on an existing intrusion alarm to
    sound locally, or you can pay to have it monitored.

Keep in mind that looks can be deceiving. Just because a complex
is new does not mean that it is safe. Look closely at the apartments
you are considering. When it comes to your safety, you should not
compromise.



                            Moving In

Utilities

In many cases, you will be responsible for setting up your utilities
such as electricity, gas, water, and sewer. In many states including
Georgia, some utilities are deregulated and therefore you have a
choice of service providers. You should contact the company in
advance to make sure necessary services are ready when you
move into your new home. Some companies require credit checks
and/or deposits, so be prepared for those expenses.



                                 29
Services

Cable, internet, and phone services: Many companies offer services
like cable and telephone which may or may not be the best option for
you. Just as with utilities you should contact the company in advance
to make sure necessary services are ready when you move into
your new home. Some companies also require credit checks and/or
deposits, so be prepared for those expenses.


Renter’s insurance

Before moving into your new place, make sure your belongings
are protected. Renters’ insurance covers your belongings (stereo,
TV, clothing, computer, jewelry, etc.) if they are stolen or damaged.
Landlords and property owners may not be responsible for personal
property. A wide variety of policies are available from most insurance
companies, and some companies offer significant discounts if you
already have other insurance policies, such as auto insurance, with
the company.


Smoke and carbon monoxide detectors

All home improvement stores carry a variety of smoke detectors for
the home. Consider purchasing a 2A 10BC fire extinguisher. This type
is designed to work on paper, grease and electrical fires. Carbon
monoxide is an odorless, colorless gas. Consider purchasing a carbon
monoxide detector in order to protect yourself from poisoning.



                   The Price of Citizenship

Take time to familiarize yourself with local ordinances. As a
member of any community, you will want to know and understand
the ordinances that govern you and your neighbors. Many cities
have ordinances which govern many issues such as street
parking, noise, and the number of unrelated people in a dwelling.
You can typically find a complete list of local ordinances and laws
online. Athens Clark County ordinances can be found at www.
athensclarkecounty.com.
