Click here for a map of all the parcels in the City of Altoona that contain legally established student rental homes. The round shapes around most of these parcels show the areas within which new student homes may not be established according to City Ordinance #5588. Note that apartment buildings with three or more units, family housing, fraternities, and sororities are not regulated or addressed by Ordinance #5588, and are thus not shown on the map.

Anyone wishing to establish a new student home must contact the City Zoning Officer at (814) 949-2470 to apply for a special exception before the Zoning Hearing Board. Likewise, any student rental homes operating illegally may be reported to the City Zoning Officer.
