College Students

  • Unfortunately, many of Utah’s worst unreinforced masonry rental apartments and houses are near our colleges and universities.
  • Be aware!  Please take the time to read the first parts of this website and to evaluate any building you are considering renting. Read and consider What Should I Know?  What Should I Do?    Plan to Rent?
  • This problem is often worse for students because many apartments and houses are rented sight-unseen. Many students come from out-of-state and are not even aware of Utah’s earthquake risk.
  • Again, we strongly advise you to learn about Utah’s earthquake risk and the building you are considering renting.
  • We think it’s worth it to rent a building that is not a URM even if it means being farther away from campus.
