Can I write off rent paid for my college student?

No rent is not a deductible education expense.  There is not a rent deduction or credit on your Federal return.  If your state has anything for renters you will be prompted to enter your rent info when you complete your state return.  As far as I know, the states that have anything for rent are Vermont, Michigan, Maine,Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Missouri, New Jersey, Rhode Island, California, Hawaii, Indiana, Iowa, Arizona,  Wisconsin, and Connecticut.  I don't know if there are any others.
