Off-Campus Housing Service for Landlords & Students

Burlington County College’s (BCC) new off-campus housing service can connect local landlords and BCC students looking for rental units, making it the first community college in New Jersey to partner with Places4Students.com.

Local landlords can post listings online now. This service will provide a list of rentals available in the Burlington County that are convenient for BCC students. For more information on how to list units, visit www.bcc.edu/places4students.

All student services are FREE for students; including listing searches, student sublet postings and roommate profiles. Landlords who advertise between now and February 28, 2014, will benefit from FREE property listings as well, with no future obligations.

“Although Burlington County College is a community college, it is not entirely a commuter college,” BCC Vice President of Student Success Dr. Terrence Hardee said. “Burlington County College’s reputation attracts students from 16 different states and 52 nations across the globe. Places4Students will make it easier for them to locate places to live, while advancing their education in Burlington County.”

More than 14 percent of BCC students from the fall 2012 semester lived in a rental unit. This semester, nearly 170 students from more than 50 different countries attend BCC, as well as nearly 120 out-of-state students.

Places4Students.com has been in operation since 2003, and is celebrating its 10th anniversary this month. It has partnered with more than 100 college and university campuses throughout North America and helped more than 67,500 landlords and property management companies rent to students effectively to-date.

“We’re helping students find a home, away from home!” said Mark Taylor, Director of Accounts for Places4Students.com.
Places4Students.com received approximately 11 million page views last year. In addition, the following statistics show the specific amount of user traffic per area:

  • New Jersey 126,355 website visits.
  • United States 388,747 website visits.
  • North America 444,735 website visits.

“Burlington County College’s partnership with Places4Students fills a void in our community to provide a direct connection between students who need a place to live and landlords who have rooms to rent,” Dr. Hardee said. “This is a win-win situation benefitting students and the community.”
