News and Announcements

House Tours in Nearby Neighborhoods
If you want to view homes for sale close to the University, get a seat on the free buses running during City Living Sundays on March 21 and 28. The annual tours and one-stop-shopping experience show off city neighborhoods. Look for locations that qualify for the University Home Ownership Incentive Program, which offers up to $9,000 toward the purchase of a home. First-time homebuyers also can apply for a federal tax credit of up to $8,000 for a principal residence if they have a binding sales contract in place on or before April 30. For a closer look, see where employees have already purchased city homes.
