Off-Campus Housing: ACT and ACT Ally


Achieving Community Together (ACT)

ACT is a collaborative effort between Texas State University and the City of San Marcos to reduce common sources of conflict in a university town: noise, parking, trash and the upkeep of rental property.

ACT Ally

ACT Ally is a program of ACT in collaboration with the Department of Housing and Residential Life. Through ACT Ally, innovative approaches are used to address quality of life issues for a successful off campus living experience. Resources are available to assist with roommate disputes, landlord disputes, maintenance concerns and leasing issues to help resolve conflicts.



Are you looking for off-campus housing? ACT Ally is here to help.

ACT Ally connects students to the rental housing industry through Members and Affiliates who promote a healthy living environment plus demonstrate a pattern of fair and equitable business practices in the delivery of affiliated services and products. As a participant in the ACT Ally program, an apartment complex, rental property, product or service provider is included in a select group to help students and parents make more informed decisions when choosing off campus housing. In addition, each year a peace officer performs a crime prevention survey at participating properties checking the quality of doors, locks, windows, plus the lightning and grounds maintenance.
