Renting to college students has changed tremendously in the past 5-10 years. The Texas Property Code does not give many protections to renters, so they need to be aware of what they are signing and what the consequences are in leasing. If you are asked to sign as a guarantor, you also face significant risks, so the information below is designed to help you educate yourself and your student about leasing so that you both can have the best experience possible. This information has been provided by the Parent and Family Relations.

For more information or assistance with a renting issue, please have your student contact the Office of the Attorney for Students at 512-245-2370.
