What is Cougar Choice Housing?
Cougar Choice Housing is an educational program of Washington State University. We work with the local community to provide our students and their parents with information that can help them make better-educated choices about off-campus housing. We do this through inspecting properties that are off campus under specific safety criteria.
Can you find me an apartment?
No, but we can provide the resources to find housing through one of our approved property managers / landlords. We can also provide resources through Washington State University that would include how to find a roommate, how to find on campus housing, and various vendor questions.
What does CCH look for in properties that wish to enroll?
We use 40 different criteria to enroll properties. This includes checking for working smoke detectors, dead bolts on doors, lockable windows, etc.
