The You + 2 law affects students more than you would think, and makes it extremely difficult to find affordable housing. This law is extremely outdated from when students would have more than 1 person in a bedroom at off-campus housing and is very discriminatory, automatically assuming that all students are a nuisance and are focused on partying, when we are simply trying to excel academically while minimizing student debt. The law states that is it illegal to have 3 or more unrelated people living under the same roof in order to "prevent over occupancy complaints". As the cost of rent continues to rise in Fort Collins, this You + 2 law becomes an even more challenging barrier, as few students can afford to pay a rent price made for 4+ bedrooms with only 3 residents, as this is the maximum allowed with you+2, excluding family, spouse, etc. I want to CHANGE THE LAW to allow ONE PERSON per LEGAL BEDROOM This would still prevent excessive noise and overcrowding but allow for more fair, affordable housing, increasing student success. I have seen far too many friends, students, and members of our community become homeless, desperately in search of a place to live, or abiding by You +2 but struggling to pay rent. PLEASE HELP OUR STUDENTS and SIGN BELOW!!
