Hey Cardinals: It's Time to Find Your Perfect Nest!

The Virtual Roost Housing Fair kicks off September 14 and runs all semester long!


The school year is now in full swing and it's easy to put some things to the back burner. Finding a house for next year should be top priority! Lucky for you, we're here to help you figure it all out.

The Daily’s Virtual Roost Housing Fair is the perfect opportunity to scout out a new nest by talking to local landlords and comparing options from the best student housing properties around Muncie - all from the comfort of your own home!
