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.
