Decisions, Decisions: Choosing Between Houses and Apartments BY KSENIA MARYASOVA @KseniaMaryasova

Looking for the most suitable housing option, especially picking between houses and apartments, is an individual choice for students, and what works for some may not work for others. Industrial design junior Aidan Ault traveled half the world before settling down in a house 2.5 miles from Tempe campus with nine like-minded friends and five dogs. Under one roof, the roommates share eight bedrooms, good vibes and a love of snowboarding. Having previously lived in an apartment, Ault said he feels life in a house is calmer and it’s easier to get along with roommates because there’s much more space. “When you’re in a house you can dissipate a conflict very easily by taking your own space,” he said. “In an apartment, you’re locked together and you have to put up with each other and it can get a little heated.” Looking for more privacy from a landlord and some space for the dogs to run around were among the other reasons for moving to a house, Ault said. “If you’re in a rush as a college student, it’s very useful to be able to let your dog run in the back yard,” he said. Although a big house can be challenging to maintain, it allows the students to throw better parties, Ault said.

Graduate student Yi-Chin Lin shares a two-bedroom apartment off-campus with a roommate. The maintenance team at the apartment complex is very efficient in terms of repairing broken things, she said, and reacted very quickly when she woke up in a flooded apartment. “I woke up and I thought I was in the middle of a river,” she said. “I really panicked, woke up my roommate, cut off the electricity and called the leasing office.” The water leakage that started at night as a result of a broken pipe flooded the floor and caused damage to Lin’s laptop. The apartment officials refused to cover the cost of the laptop, because Lin didn’t have a rental insurance, but were willing to pay for a night at a hotel. Despite the accident, Lin said she is satisfied with living in an apartment and it’s a more acceptable choice for her. Lin also said she enjoys sharing the apartment with a roommate, who was a great support during the accident. “My roommate did all the emergency, and I did all the panic,” she said. “If I was alone and found out it was flooded, I wouldn’t know what to do.” Reach the reporter at kmaryaso@asu.edu

Students Say Students Say Goodbye to Dorms

Goodbye to dorms BY RASHINDA BANKHEAD @rashindaa

BY RASHINDA BANKHEAD @rashindaa

6 Housing Guide


Student Experience Dorms have been the norm for numerous students this year, but for many it is time to make the transition to student apartment housing. Journalism freshman Cara Popeski is one of those students.   When Popeski moved from her hometown of Tucson into the dorms this year, she said it was both exhilarating and nerve-wracking.   “The very first night living away from home, I was so excited to finally have a chance to not live in the same house I grew up in with my family, and then I ended up having a really hard time falling asleep just that first night (staying in the dorms),” she said.   Popeski said she really enjoyed living in the dorms this year and has met many people through the process.

“Being in the dorms has been reallfun just because that’s where I’ve met the majority of my friends,” she said. The dorm was an ideal stepping-stone from living at home with parents to having freedom, but not all the responsibility, she added.   “It’s kind of nice because it’s like a medium step from going between living at home to being completely on your own,” she said. “I feel the independence of not being with my family but I also still have food whenever I need it and I’m not in charge of taking care of an entire house. I have one room like I did at home.” Now that the time has come to move out of the dorm, Popeski said she is looking forward to having her own space in the student aparment housing.

There is one thing Popeski is especially looking forward to. “I am really excited about having my own kitchen, and I’m glad that it’s so close to campus,” she said.   Biology freshman Mckenzie LibertyBibbens is also going to be making the move to student apartment housing. The main things that Liberty-Bibbens is looking forward to are things that students living with family might take for granted.  “I am really, really excited to have my own room and bathroom and to have a kitchen … it will be nice to make our own food,” she said.   Reach the reporter at  Rashinda. bankhead@asu.edu

Experience Differs When Living at Home BY JACOB GOLDSTEIN @mister_jgold

Students at ASU share a similarity in the fact that they attend the same school, but the experiences they may have can differ depending on whether they are living on campus or at home with their parents.   Journalism freshman Jagger Czajka said he believes that living at home is not the worst possible scenario and is financially responsible.  “I figured if I could live with my parents for 19 years, I can live with them for another three,” he said.

He said that dealing with the antics of obnoxious roommates can be quite distracting and detrimental to his ASU experience.   “I actually used to live in Manzanita and a lot of people were drunk, so that’s one thing that wasn’t the best about it,” Fisher said.  “I got to stay a year in the dorms and I think that’s enough.” Reach the reporter at jhgolds2@asu.edu

Problems can arise from living with mothers and fathers as students strive for more independence and freedom from their past lives in high school.   “There is a clash of personalities over things like chores,” Czajka said.    For this reason, Czajka plans on eventually moving out, but does not want to live on campus.   “I plan on living somewhere in South Scottsdale,” he said.  “I’ve lived there for years and I think it’s my favorite city.” It’s almost the completely opposite scenario for global studies sophomore Kyle Fisher, as he plans to move home at the end of the semester after living in the San Pablo dorm at ASU.  “I got to stay a year in the dorm and I think that’s enough,” Fisher said.  “I don’t mind living at home just because it makes a lot more sense financially.” Fisher looked into the possibility of finding another offcampus living situation, but ultimately decided on moving back to his parents’ house.  “Different places like The District and Vista have emailed me or sent me something to come live there,” he said.  “I just really didn’t find anybody that I wanted to room with.”

With great views, an ideal location and raging pool parties, it’s no surprise that 922 Place was voted the best off-campus living of the year. Located almost directly in the middle of all surrounding housing for the majority of ASU students, a quick walk or drive in any direction ranks this complex number one. If a short walk to campus, spacious living and useful amenities, like the workout and computer rooms, are all important qualities in a living space, 922 surely won’t disappoint.

Looking for a modern home away from home in the heart of downtown Phoenix? Roosevelt Point is a great option for students who want a memorable college experience. The apartment complex features two pools and hot tubs, and two exercise rooms and game rooms. The complex offers studios to four-bedroom units. Each unit features upgraded kitchen appliances and granite countertops, a washer and dryer. It’s no wonder that it was voted downtown’s best off-campus housing.

CA’s Personal Housing Experience BY THE STATE PRESS

Community Ambassadors are student representatives of ASU who live in off campus communities. Their role is to keep students in their communities connected to the university and all of the service, support, experiences, and opportunities that are available at ASU. They are also great resources for unvarnished information about living off campus. We asked a few of our community ambassadors to share a little bit about their experience living in off campus communities.

TIPS FROM CA’S

A few tips from Community Assistants that you just can’t miss out on.

Safety This should be one of your number one priority. You want good lighting and somewhere you will feel safe and comfortable walking outside.

Transportation

Think about the staff and their reputation. How friendly and helpful are they? Is there a roommate selection process? Will they be willing to help if you are not satisfied with your living situation? Also, ask about maintenance staff and their duties. 

How developed is the public transportation (light rail or bus system), if needed? In a bind will you be able to get to work and school easily? These are all important questions whether you have access to a vehicle or not.

Price

It’s important to think about how much you can afford. Can you pay rent by yourself? Are utilities included? Will you split the costs with roommates? Utilities can often add up to $30 to $100 per month.

Atmosphere

Location

Some communities do not adhere to quiet hours and cleanliness as much as others. Are there designated study rooms? Are all units in one building or multiple buildings where you can stay clear of some noise?

Think about convenience. If you move far from campus, will you go to class? How walkable is the area? Review the WalkScore for the closest stores, food, etc.

Environmentally Conscious Being environmentally conscious goes beyond recycling. Take note of highefficiency appliances, green fixtures (lights, faucets, etc.), window shades and electric vehicle stations.

18 Housing Guide

Privacy

Privacy can be a key factor in deciding which living situation is best for you. Do you want your own bathroom? Are you comfortable living with strangers or roommates in general?

Amenities Think about your lifestyle before getting sold on high-priced amenities you may or may not use. Does the gym offer equipment you use regularly? Consider a fully furnished living space vs. purchasing furniture on your own.

Pets

A pet friendly environment can be tricky. It is great to be able to have pets but be sure to ask about any restrictions or pet fees. Are there outdoor areas? Be considerate of neighbors with regards to noise and cleanliness of your pets.


Surviving & Thriving Without a Car BY ADRIANA LOYA @loyadriana

MINNEAPOLIS — I sold my car. And I have no plans to buy another one. It was a hard decision — and something of a radical one in Minnesota, where cars are a staple. In fact, it took me many months to ease out of my Subaru Impreza and to prove to myself that I really didn’t need it. Now, two months after selling my car and nearly a year since I stopped driving it, I no longer worry about traffic or parking, my wallet is thankful, I’m in better shape and I feel much more connected to my adopted city. So, how do I get around? My primary modes of transportation are buses (in the winter) and bicycling (in the summer), interspersed with a lot of walking. But I credit two tools for getting me to take the plunge: car sharing and my smartphone. For a long time, I held onto my car because I wondered “What if?” What if I have to make a large purchase at Target or pick up a lot of groceries? What if I need to get somewhere quickly? With expanding options from Hourcar, Zipcar, Car2Go and taxi-like services such as Lyft and UberX, I’ve discovered I can find a ride whenever I need one — as long as I have my phone with me. The other night as I left work, for example, I checked Minneapolis Metro Transit’s mobile site for the arrival time of the next bus traveling down Nicollet Avenue. Within minutes, I hopped the bus from downtown to a friend’s improv show on 37th Street. Later that evening, after dinner at a nearby restaurant, I checked the same site and learned that there wasn’t another bus for an hour. Instead of waiting, I opened another app and found that a Car2Go ride-share vehicle was just around the corner. I drove home, locked the car and left it on the street for the next Car2Go user to find. The ride cost me less than $6 — a marginal cost after subtracting the expense of maintaining a vehicle. I had never owned a car — nor driven one for very long

— before arriving in Minneapolis four years ago. In both Washington, D.C., where I had been working, and New York City, where I grew up, owning a car isn’t the norm, in part because both cities have expansive transit systems. Knowing I’d need to have a car in Minnesota, I hired a driving instructor in Washington to help me brush up on my technique. I drove at night for the very first time when I peeled out of the dealership lot in White Bear Lake, Minn., in my used car. For a while, I was hooked on the novelty of driving. After about two years, though, I started to question my car logic. The winter only seemed longer as I scraped off my windshield, lonelier when I was sitting alone in traffic. It was worse during the precious warm months in Minneapolis: I yearned to be outside. Owning a car seemed limiting, and not worth the money. “I think we’re tied to our cars so that people refuse to go to certain parts of the city because they don’t want to park, they don’t want to pay for parking or they have to leave somewhere early because their car is parked in a certain spot,” said Bill Lindeke, the carless host of the transportation-focused streets.mn podcast. “And in a way, the car sort of owns the person, instead of the other way around.” I have no children, I live along a bus line in Uptown and work downtown, about 4 miles away. My company has a few vehicles for work-related trips during the day. Yet I was still one of 61 percent of Minneapolis residents driving to work solo. Last spring, I bought a bike and started riding to work. Come fall, I got serious about understanding the bus system. Late this past winter, I took the Subaru to a carwash, took some photos of my car, then sold it on Craigslist. Ride sharing For grocery runs and trips to the suburbs, I have access

19 Housing Guide


to a Zipcar near my house, which must be returned to the location it was taken from. (Locally owned Hourcar has a similar model.) For short trips, I use Car2Go. Of course, it made little sense to pay $9-$10 an hour (or about 46 cents a minute in the case of Car2Go) to rent a car when I was already paying more than $300 a month for loan payments, insurance, gas and parking for my own vehicle. Subtract my vehicle, however, and the occasional cost of car sharing has quickly become negligible. On average, I make only two or three Car2Go trips per month, but the peace of mind of knowing the services exist is enough for me to rely on the bus system during the colder months.

Becoming a biker The Minneapolis bike infrastructure has grown rapidly, but I’ll be the first to admit that becoming a bike commuter was a bit intimidating. It took time to determine what kind of bike to purchase, locate the best routes and learn the etiquette. (Raising your left hand to signal a right turn was a bit baffling at first.) I’d never been that into biking, so each ride was a lesson. Google Maps bike directions were often my best guide. And only recently did I discover the wisdom of attaching saddle bags to transport groceries or hold a spare jacket. Bike commuting requires more thought about the weather than driving does, though I can take the bus or use a bus bike rack in the event of rain — something New York City doesn’t have. Parking is plentiful and traffic — apart from stoplights — is nonexistent, especially on the side roads I frequent.

Getting on board Busing was also somewhat complicated at first. I first had to purchase a GoTo card, Metro Transit’s bus pass, at a local grocery store. Hopping on the No. 6 outside my house to get downtown for work was easy, but what if I want to go to some obscure address outside of my normal route? Bus stops in Minneapolis provide woefully little information about where buses go. For a new user, it’s enough to keep you in your car. “The transit system works reasonably well if you’re going to go downtown, or to one of the downtowns,” said professor David Levinson, a transportation expert at the University of Minnesota. “There’s relatively fewer crossconnections. So if you’re not going to downtown, but you want to go from Point A to Point B, Car2Go might very well be faster.” Are there hiccups with taking the bus? Sure. Is it colder waiting for the bus? Yes. But it was a lot warmer after I bought a better coat, wore long underwear and wrapped my head in a scarf. Taking the bus helped me discover something rare in the Twin Cities: a public environment where strangers

20 Housing Guide

occasionally talk to each other. Bus interactions aren’t always pleasant, particularly when alcohol is involved, but observing and encountering a variety of people on a daily basis is one of the things that makes city life so interesting.

Not for everyone Going carless isn’t for everyone, of course. I happen to live along a transit corridor and not far from where I work. Many people have long commutes to and from the suburbs and rely on their cars to get their children to the soccer game and the orthodontist. “Kids plus no car seems like a Triple Lindy level of difficulty,” one Twitter follower told me when I asked about managing without a car. Not everyone has the mobility to ride a bike, and the bus system isn’t convenient if you work in a location that’s off the beaten track. “A lot of it just depends on how you arrange your life,” said Levinson, whose five-member family owns one car. But for some urban families, the growing number of transportation options may mean the ability to get rid of a car — or even two. They just might find — as I did — the many intangible benefits to becoming car-free.

I am a freak, and I’m OK with that. I work in a business that takes a stubborn pride in its slovenliness. From where I sit, I can see disheveled bookshelves, teetering piles of paper and bulletin boards littered with fliers for events that happened months ago. Then there’s my desk. It’s not exactly spare, but it’s pretty tidy. The notes and documents for stories I’m working on are squirreled away in folders in an upright file. My books are corralled in a crate. When I need a pen or a phone number or a pair of scissors, I know where to find it. Yeah, I know what you’re thinking. I’m obsessive and regimented. It’s OK. Those of us who live by color-coded calendars are used to that stereotype. But I’m going to let you in on a little secret. I’m organized because I’m lazy. Believe me, I wasn’t born with a penchant for labeled storage boxes. I’ll choose play over work anytime. And if something isn’t important to me, I have a dangerous tendency to put it out of my mind. Seriously. My college roommate once drew me a map to our dorm’s Dumpster because I kept neglecting to empty the trash. But I learned long ago that laziness was an awful lot of work. Forgetting an appointment meant phone calls and apologies and rejuggling of schedules. Letting papers pile up meant wasted time searching frantically for notes on deadline or having to track down information a second time. Leaving my stuff around the house meant marathon cleaning sessions when I’d rather be having fun. Who has the energy? So, little by little, I’ve forced myself to get organized. And you know what? It’s way easier than being disorganized. It takes only a few extra seconds to put something back where I got it, when it used to take me a half-hour to tidy up the house before I could even start cleaning. When I’m opening the mail, it’s no bother to jot a bill’s due date on the envelope and stick it into the desktop organizer that sits on my kitchen counter, where I can see the bills every day and be reminded when they’re due. It takes a few moments to transfer the particulars about an event or an errand to my calendar, but then I don’t have to keep lots of papers or waste time tracking down details. My smartphone makes organizing even easier. I keep my calendar there, which I can sync with computerized calendars at work and at home and even share with my husband. I can send myself reminders or set my alarm clock so I don’t have to worry about missing birthdays or dentist’s appointments. I keep an errand list, a grocery list and a list of all those hard-to-remember details, like the type of ink cartridge my printer uses or the dimensions of that space on the wall where I need just the right size mirror. So when I’m out shopping, I have that information with me. This didn’t happen overnight. I got there one baby step at a time. I can’t make you organized in one column, but I can give you a piece of advice: Start by tackling the one thing that bothers you most. If it’s the heap of shoes that accumulates by the door, figure out a system for storing them _ a shoe

rack, maybe, or a big basket. If it’s the jumbled utensil drawer that won’t close, cull out the duplicates and the things you don’t need, and then measure the drawer and buy dividers that fit. If it’s lost car keys, mount a key rack or place a basket where you’ll see it whenever you enter the house, and get in the habit of always putting your keys there. There are plenty of books, magazine articles and websites out there to help you and give you ideas. I think you’ll find that once you achieve one small success, you’ll want to keep going. But you may be surprised by how much of your time you’ll get back.

Life on the Light Rail A guide to the Valley Metro light rail By Jonah Hersch

What has the light rail offered me? Choosing an apartment community that was close to public transportation was important to me, that’s why I chose to live at Apache Station. Living at Apache Station I am able to take the light rail virtually anywhere that I want to go, even though I have a car I still prefer to use the light rail. Aside from the benefits to saving money on gas, reducing pollution, and less wear and tear on your car, to me the light rail offers an easier alternative than driving. When I am going to work or school I can use that time to read or do some extra studying. Additionally, if I want to go out on the weekends I can do so safely knowing that I can enjoy my night and not have to worry about any drunk drivers that may be on the road. What is the U-Pass? The U-Pass is a transit pass offered by Valley Metro and Parking & Transit Services at ASU. It is an alternative to paying for a parking pass and dealing with tight parking spaces, and valid on any public transportation offered by Valley Metro, including: the light rail and bus systems, LINK, RAPID and Express bus systems. The U-Pass can

be up to half the cost of a traditional parking pass, and offer a greener mode of transportation while saving money on gas and parking.

Loud Party Concerns Tempe has a vitality that is unmatched in the valley. Arizona State University, Mill Avenue, and huge city sponsored events. Private parties are also frequent, as are noise complaints. The Tempe Police responded to over 8,000 loud party/noise complaints for the year 2004! These complaints often result in the person responsible for the party receiving a fine or a citation. What is a “loud party”? A loud party is a gathering that disturbs the peace of another. It does not actually have to be a traditional party to qualify. Parties often bring related problems such as noise complaints, loud vehicles and their stereos, neighborhood litter, and misbehavior such as urinating in public. The info below gives information on how loud parties are handled by the Tempe Police. What to do if you are planning a party: • Notify neighbors of the planned party. If the neighbors are not supportive, change the location or nature of the party. • Consider neighbors when planning your party. • Control who is invited and admitted to your party. • During your party, periodically check your neighborhood to correct problems. You may be responsible for what takes place off of your property as a result of your party. Pick up trash and correct any other problems. • If you lose control of your party, end

it yourself. If you are unsuccessful in ending it, call the police. The police will assist you. • If the police show up at your party, fully cooperate with them. Your cooperation may keep you from getting fined or cited.

www.maricopa.gov/assessor. When to call the police: • When all else fails, call Tempe Police and report the disturbance. • If you are not willing to identify yourself or be listed as a victim in a police report, police will still respond, but the incident will be handled as a civil matter.

• Do not mix alcohol and underage party attendees. The two do not go together, and could lead to civil and criminal consequences.

Arizona State Law Arizona State law states that a person commits the crime of Disorderly Conduct by making unreasonable noise that disturbs the peace and quiet of another person. (A.R.S. 13-2904) A person believed to have committed disorderly conduct may be arrested or cited. If found guilty, that person could be sentenced up to four months in jail and given a $750 fine for a first offense. To charge someone with Disorderly Conduct, the courts require that a citizen allow police to put his/her name in the police report and testify as a victim. No report will be taken if there is no victim.

Safety

Help Elimiate Auto Theft Professional thieves can steal any car, but make them work for yours. To prevent thefts, the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) and the Arizona Automobile Theft Authority recommends “Layered Protection.” The more layers of protection on your vehicle, the more difficult it is to steal. The number of layers your vehicle needs varies depending on your vehicle and geographic location. Your budget and personal preferences should determine which anti-theft device is best for you.

Layer #2 -- Warning Device The second layer of protection is a visible or audible device which alerts thieves that your vehicle is protected. Popular second layer devices include:

tracking device which emits a signal to a police or monitoring station when the vehicle is reported stolen. Tracking devices are very effective in helping authorities recover stolen vehicles.

• Audible alarms • Steering wheel locks • Steering column locks • Brake locks • Tire locks • Watch Your Car decals • Identification markers in or on vehicle • Protective Window Laminate • Microdots applied to various surfaces on vehicle, which are imprinted with identification information. • Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) etching on vehicle windows.

Passive and Active Anti-Theft Systems Passive and active anti-theft devices are the two options available when considering an anti-theft system. Passive devices automatically arm themselves when the vehicle is turned off, the ignition key removed, or a door is shut. No additional action is required. Active devices require some independent Layer #1 -- Common Sense physical action before they are set, such An unlocked vehicle with a key in the as pushing a button, or placing a “lock” ignition is an open invitation to any thief, over a vehicle component part.

quickly to law enforcement and your insurance claims agent. • Make your vehicle easier to identify. One way is to write your initials on an index card and drop it in the window slot, or carefully engrave your initials inside the trunk, hood, or even the dashboard near the VIN number. • Etch the VIN number on all window glass of the vehicle. • Review your insurance policy annually. Don’t wait until after your vehicle is stolen to find out you don’t have the coverage you think you have. Owners are advised to review their auto insurance policies once a year, including coverage you must have, coverage you’ll probably need, and additional types of coverage, including roadside assistance and rental reimbursement. • Exercise caution if you see someone tampering with your car. Call 911 as quickly as possible. ` Don’t Purchase a Stolen Vehicle

36 Housing Guide

• Use Common Sense. If it looks too good to be true, it probably is! • Don’t meet the seller in an unsafe location. Meet at a permanent location of the seller and avoid situations where you can only meet the seller by pager. • Let the seller know you will not be bringing cash, but will pay by personal or cashier’s check if you decide to purchase the vehicle. • Ask the seller for valid picture I.D. and compare the information to the vehicle registration and title. • Be leery of pre-signed ownership documents, or sellers who are not both the registered and legal owners. The documents may be forged, or a lender may have a lien that prevents transfer of title. • If the ownership documents are recently issued or duplicate, the vehicle may have changed hands recently or the title lost. Inquire why! • Check the ownership documents for an indication that the vehicle is

a salvage and be very cautious if it is. Many salvage vehicles are rebuilt with stolen parts or are unsafe. Also be alert to these issues if any vehicle appears to have been extensively damaged or rebuilt. • Be sure all numbers match. Look at the numbers on both the Vehicle Identification Number plate and the license plate. They should be the same on both the vehicle registration and title. • Before you pay, be sure documentation is adequate to obtain registration and legal title. Check with the Motor Vehicle Division (MVD) first if there is any doubt. Be careful! Cashier’s checks and money orders are not always what they appear to be! Local law enforcement agencies have had numerous cases where counterfeit cashiers checks and money orders are being used to commit forgeries and/or frauds when purchasing a vehicle.


Ditch the Dorms and Study Abroad

Safety

BY MEGANN PHILLIPS @megannphillips

ASU’s dorms are a barren place in the summer months, when most students head home to spend the warmest part of the year with their families. But not all students ditching the dorms this May are going home—In fact, many will be straying farther from home than they ever have before. The number of students participating in international study abroad programs through ASU is ever growing, and this summer hundreds of University students will be spending time in dozens of countries across the globe. As per statistics provided by the Study Abroad Office’s 20112012 enrollment report, summer programs of two weeks or more are the most popular options for students who wish to study abroad while in college, and some of the most popular destinations are Spain, the U.K., Italy and France. Students can choose between faculty-directed programs, which are led by ASU professors and generally shorter in length, and partnership or exchange programs, through which students attend classes and adhere to the curriculum of a university in their host country. In both cases, students have several options for housing. They are able to stay in the home of a local family, live in international student residence halls or live in a private apartment. For students participating in multi-site programs, such as journalism freshman Hannah Dickens, housing will be provided in different locations during different portions of the program. Dickens’s program is a faculty-directed program organized through Barrett, the Honors College, that visits the cities of London, Dublin and Edinburgh. She will be staying in an apartment in London’s Kensington neighborhood, and she will be staying in a college dorm room while visiting the University College Dublin and the University of Edinburgh. Dickens will have ample opportunity to absorb western European culture while abroad, and she said she looks forward to doing so. “I am excited to get to live different places and get to have those different experiences,” she said. Kyle Rausch, an international coordinator in ASU’s Study Abroad Office, said that he would prefer a homestay over any other housing option were he to study abroad.

“If I could study abroad again, I would choose a homestay,” he said. “Having visited homestay families and spoken to students who did a homestay, I can say that this is really an exceptional opportunity to learn first-hand about the host culture and language.  You also get a built-in network to meeting locals.” Contact the reporter at megann.phillips@asu.edu

Safety

Fire Safety The Tempe Fire Department is concerned about your safety both on and off campus. When choosing offcampus housing, insure that fire safety plays a role in your efforts to choose an apartment, just as you consider crime prevention issues. Since January of 2000, 100 students have died in campus-related fires in the United States, with almost 80 percent occurring in off-campus housing, according to Campus Firewatch, a monthly newsletter focusing on the complex issues of campus fire safety. Four factors have been identified in a number of the off-campus fires: • Lack of automatic fire sprinklers • Missing or disabled smoke alarms • Careless disposal of smoking materials • Impaired judgment from alcohol consumption

provided by automatic fire sprinklers. Know that smoke detectors are required in all rental housing units in Tempe, and ask that the unit be tested to insure that it is working before you select the apartment. Ask when the last fire inspection was done on the building and do not hesitate to ask to see the Fire Department’s Inspection Form so that you can be knowledgeable about any noted violations of the fire code.

Basic steps in fire safety include: • Not sleeping in a building without a working smoke detector. • Know two ways out of any building that you are in, whether it is your house, apartment, theater or night club. • After a party, check seat cushions on couches and chairs for cigarettes that may be smoldering, and dispose of cigarette butts properly. With ASU being the largest university • Do not overload extension cords if in the nation, we are not immune from may cause them to overheat. the dangers of fire, as evidenced by two • Make sure you have a fire near tragic fires in off-campus housing extinguisher and that you know during the 2006 fall semester.

and Tempe Fire is reaching out to the community to raise awareness of this growing problem and to communicate that help is available. Tempe firefighters have experienced many cases of hoarding. It is a dangerous trend that risks the lives of firefighters and residents alike. People with friends or loved ones who may have a problem with hoarding can seek help from the Arizona Hoarding Task Force at 602-778-3363 or www. azhoarding.com. This collaboration of agencies provides links to research, support groups and personal organization services. Tempe residents also can find help through the city’s Care 7 Victim Assistance program at 480-350-8032 or www.tempe.gov/care7.t How do I report an emergency? A: 9-1-1 is the phone number to call to report a fire, police or medical emergency. 9-1-1 is initially answered by the Tempe Police Department, regardless of the emergency you are reporting. However, if you are reporting a fire or medical emergency, you will immediately be connected to a Fire, Medical, Rescue Department. How often should a fire extinguisher be replaced/serviced? A: There are no requirements for personal residences, but it is recommended that they be visually checked every year to make sure there are no cracks or rust and to make sure the pin is still in the green. After 10 years or so the extinguisher should be replaced.

Tempe Housing Code Requirements Why a Rental Housing Code?: Degree of Consanguinity While most property owners, landlords and property management companies do their best to maintain rental units in safe and healthy conditions, others may neglect needed repairs on their properties. Exterior conditions such as peeling paint, curling roof shingles and dead landscaping may have a negative effect on surrounding property values and breed apathy in a neighborhood. Interior conditions such as adequate cooling and heating, proper plumbing, and correct electrical connections are all necessary to secure the well-being and safety of the tenant. The City of Tempe’s Rental Housing Code was adopted in January 1998 to ensure that rental housing units, both single and multi-family units, remain free of deteriorated and slum-like conditions. The code was not designed to settle landlord-tenant disputes. This information is intended to provide a summary of Tempe’s Rental Housing Code requirements. For specific information or a complete copy of the Rental Housing Code, please contact, Code Compliance at 480-350-4311 or visit www.tempe.gov/code/. The City of Tempe regulates the number of people that can legally occupy a property. In single family dwellings, more than three (3) people that are not related can not live together as a household.

2. Not more than three (3) persons who are not related by the 3rd degree of consanguinity, adoption, marriage or as domestic partners, living together in a dwelling unit. For more information please contact the Code Compliance office at 480350-4311. Safety and Security For the purpose of safety and security, each and every rental unit within the City is required to meet the following minimum conditions: • Smoke Detectors are required in each unit and must be in working condition at all times. • Locking devises are required for exterior swinging or sliding doors, and on all windows that are designed to be opened and are accessible from the outside. • Every principle entrance door must have an eye viewer or adjacent window, which allows a view of the area directly in front of the door. • In complexes of more than four units, public stairwells, parking lots, exterior entrances and postal box areas must meet specific lighting requirements for safety purposes. Call for specific information on these requirements.

Kitchen Areas A kitchen sink, oven, stove, and refrigerator are all required and must be in sound condition. A reasonable flow of water and water-seal traps are required.
