Tenant Education Program

The Tenant Education Program (TEP) is an online workshop about lease signing and off-campus living to provide Miami students with the tools to be good neighbors, responsible community members, and better tenants. Students will earn a certificate once they have successfully completed the program, as well as access to various incentives from participating landlord partners.

Modules & Topics Covered

The TEP workshop is comprised of four modules, each highlighting various aspects of off-campus living. These include:

  • Renting 101 & Lease Signing
  • Being A Good Neighbor: Behavior & Living in Oxford
  • Breaks, Safety, & Parking
  • Renter’s Rights & Resources

Each workshop module is followed by a short quiz. Pass the quiz with a score of 80% or higher, and you will be certified through the program. Once completing the workshop, you will be eligible to receive various incentives with participating landlords.

How to Enroll

All current Miami students can self-enroll in the Canvas course. If you are a parent, community partner, or member of the public and are interested in accessing program materials, please email offcampus@MiamiOH.edu.

Landlord Incentives

Below is a list of participating landlords and property managers that offer incentives for students who have completed the TEP. Check back if you don’t see a specific individual or company; the program is new and we are continuously working with landlords to get their incentives on the website. 

Please note that you may be eligible for some of these incentives only prior to signing a lease. Check with the property manager to find out details.
