Housing

Los Angeles City College does not offer on-campus housing. To assist you in securing a place to stay while studying in Los Angeles, below are a few housing options and contact information for each option.

Please note that LACC is not affiliated with any of the entities listed below and thus does not assume any liability for issues arising as a result of using services provided by the following entities. 

Homestay / Home Share

This option offers the international student the opportunity to live with an American family. The student can learn firsthand what family life in the United States is like.

Homestay is a great way to make friends and improve English skills. Some homestays are within walking distance of Los Angeles City College; others are within an easy public bus ride of the campus.

Every homestay is different — some families have children and others do not, some families provide the student with a room and home-cooked meals, and others provide the room only.

Private Apartment Living

This housing option is popular for students who are independent and seek a space of their own. Most students choose this option after they have established connections in the area and have made friends during their first year. Most students rent an apartment for six-month to one-year periods of time.

When selecting your apartment, make sure it is in a desirable location and close to bus lines, shopping and social activities. Most students who choose this option will live with one or more roommates, but living alone is also an option for those who would like more personal space. Since choosing an apartment is such a personal decision, with so many options and possibilities to choose from, it is the students’ responsibility to make their own living arrangements.

A few places to begin your apartment search are:
