Find off campus housing on Google Maps!

GoOffCampus.com is a new US Google Maps mashup where students and landlords can list their apartment rentals for free. Thomas Taylor a student in Raleigh, NC has this to say when asked if about how he is mashing up the data: "I don't believe in just simply copying all the data that is on Craigslist like many of the sites out there, so I have chosen not to use the XML feed from that site as a source of listings, but rather rely on property owners who want to only list their rentals once and give them the ability to manage unlimited listings."

Currently, the most popular schools in terms of traffic and listings are:

NC State University
UNC Chapel-Hill
Duke University
U. Texas at Austin
UNC Charlotte
University of New Mexico
Georgia Tech.

With the US school year fast approaching this is a great mashup and resource to secure housing for the fall term!
