Like most community colleges in the U.S., Long Beach City College does not offer any campus housing. There are many short-term housing options available to students, including apartment rentals, house rentals, and homestays.
Most housing options are unfurnished and require a minimum 6-month lease. The cost of utilities and phone services are not included in the price. Although the college housing office cannot find an off-campus apartment for you, we have listed various options and information as a courtesy.
If you have any housing questions or concerns, please contact our International Student Program Department for assistance.
