Our Story

It was 1994 when I first stepped foot on The University of Akron campus. I had my car loaded down with all my worldly possessions and was excited to be moving into Bulger Hall. Freshman year was full of fun and going by fast. By Christmas break my friends and I knew that dorm living wasn’t going to cut it much longer. We decided that it only made sense to try to find a house or apartment that was clean, close to campus and more affordable than the dorms. Little did I know, those three things would be a tough combination to find. After looking for some time we were forced to settle on ‘close to campus’ – unfortunately ‘clean’ and ‘affordable’ weren’t part of the package. I knew there had to be a better way.

Committed to making a difference for other students, I decided that someday I would purchase a campus house and do things radically different than the other college landlords – the idea of Roo Town Rentals was born.

Several decades later, our tenants consider us to be the “go to” choice for off campus housing at the University of Akron. We continue to provide QUALITY off campus housing for SERIOUS students. Our apartments and houses are well maintained, with the best locations and at affordable prices. If you don’t believe us, take a look around and you too will see the Roo Town Rentals difference.
