With the recent impact of COVID-19, real estate services are limited. In an effort to help students find the resources they need, we have put together a list of links to help clarify what upcoming timelines look like for various real estate industry services impacted by the coronavirus, where available. Information is updated regularly, so check back often, and please know that your patience is appreciated during this time. VanEd staff also remain available to answer questions during business hours via phone, email, and online chat!
