scsUhome is a select group of local property owners who believe students shouldn’t settle for anything less than the best. Our mission is to offer students great rental home options – from groups of 3-8, we have you covered.
Your security and safety are important to us. That is why many of our homes have monitored security systems and have been validated by the St. Cloud Police Department to meet Crime Prevention Standards. We want each of you to have a great experience renting with us, so we take great pride in updating and maintaining our homes. You simply can’t go wrong with a scsUhome!
scsUhome is part of Eyes on the South Side (EOSS).
EOSS is a collaboration between the St. Cloud Police Department and property owners and residents within the central-south side of the city bordering the university campus. This area is comprised of over 80% rental properties.
Quality of life issues, both real and perceived, concerning crime, safety, public nuisances, and the visual peace and quiet of this neighborhood generated the need for a problem-oriented policing strategy. EOSS is intended to foster communication, interaction, cooperation and trust between the participants and to maintain the pride of ownership within this unique core neighborhood. The key components of the EOSS program are to:
- facilitate continuous interaction between the police and the residents of this core neighborhood.
- train, educate and support permanent and temporary residents in crime prevention and reduction strategies including personal safety, burglar proofing, safeguarding personal property and neighborhood watch principles.
- train, educate and support licensed rental property owners and managers in best practices that will lower police calls for service and raise the quality of life while maintaining both the landlord’s and the tenant’s rights.
