College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Haven't tried looking for a house.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: My school requires you to live on campus. Senior year, you have a choice, however most students still choose to live on campus.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The school requires students to live on campus until they are upper classmen, unless they live 30 miles within the proximity.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Because I'm still a Freshman, I do not know too much about off-campus housing; however, Thousand Oaks is an extremely safe neighborhood and the are countless students living off-campus, so it is possible. (It may be kind of expensive!)

College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I haven't tried looking, but I assume that since its smack in the middle of a residential area apartments are going to be further away and most likely on the expensive side.

CLU does not offer off-campus housing to students, so those who favor an apartment or house rather than the residence halls must venture off campus and do some research. Apartment rental prices vary, depending on the landlord and the proximity to campus. Be aware that apartments and houses close to campus tend to be a bit pricier than others, due to the close distance to CLU. Studios, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom rentals are available in local communities like Thousand Oaks, Moorpark, and Newbury Park. Students often pack up in groups of three to four when looking for apartments.

There are also room availabilities in houses near CLU. Homeowners understand that students like to look for places of their own during junior or senior year, and homeowners often rent out rooms to students at reasonable prices. Wherever students decide to live off campus, CLU is only a short walk, bike, or car ride away.
