Winter quarter is typically the time for students to begin looking into signing leases and making commitments for housing the next academic year.
After a long virtual year, the search for off-campus housing looks different than it has in the past. Some parents want their students to have a college experience, but they also find it difficult to make a financial commitment.
Even though classes are projected to be in person for the fall, no official announcement has been made. Parents could save a lot of money by potentially keeping their students at home. With hesitation and uncertainty regarding classes for fall quarter, the housing market in San Luis Obispo seems to have stagnated — an unusual characteristic for this time of year.
