Eastern Michigan University has launched a new website with information about off-campus housing as part of its ongoing efforts to improve safety on and around campus.
The website includes neighborhood crime stats and questions students should ask when apartment hunting.
EMU Vice President of Communication Walter Kraft says it's very important that the university provide the information and resources to help students make good, wise and informed choices on where to live.
Student safety was thrust into the spotlight earlier this month when a student-athlete was found dead at his off-campus apartment complex. Demarius Reed had been shot several times, and may have been the victim of a robbery.
The new off-campus housing website can be found at emich.edu/offcampushousing.
