The Town of Durham Zoning Ordinance has strict occupancy limits on unrelated tenant rental properties. A Single or Duplex Family Dwelling occupied only by unrelated tenants is limited to no more than 3 maximum unrelated tenants; but no more than 1 tenant for every 300 square feet of habitable floor area (this area measurement excludes hallways, stairs, closets, basements, garages, storage, etc.). In Multi Unit Dwellings (3 or more units) rental apartment properties, the limit is 1.5 tenants per 300 square feet of habitable floor area. There are also requirements for egress windows in each bedroom and smoke detectors in each bedroom. If a property is found not to be in compliance with these rules you may be forced to move out in the middle of the semester if your name is not on the lease. Please be cautious about subletting and not having your name on a lease. Just because there may be more than 3 in an apartment or house now, that may not mean it has legal standing. Check it out before you sign. If you have any questions about a particular property, contact the Durham Town Hall Code Enforcement Official at 868-8064 x118.

The Information Center at the University of New Hampshire maintains this list of available rental properties. This list is provided as a convenience to both students and the property owners and is updated on a weekly basis. UNH has not checked or approved these accommodations for fire, heat, or safety conditions and makes no warranties or representations concerning these items. The tenant assumes full responsibility for location, condition, and contractual terms of the off-campus rental. The only condition imposed by UNH for inclusion in this list is that the accommodations be available to all, regardless of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, age, or veteran's status.
