Faculty Housing Assistance Program

Recognizing the importance of affordable housing, the University has established two housing assistance programs for tenure-track faculty: a rental assistance program and a purchase assistance program.

The rental assistance program is intended to ease the transition into the local housing market for tenure-track faculty during their probationary period and for newly hired tenured faculty during the first year of their appointment. The program provides monthly rent support based on the local housing market and makes university-owned rental units available.

The purchase assistance program is intended to enhance the affordability of a single family residence in the local area; it provides assistance with the down payment and closing costs associated with the purchase of a primary personal residence. For more information about this program, please see policy.
