Off-Campus Housing Options

If you choose to find off-campus housing please be aware that you may need to purchase furniture to furnish your bedroom and possible whole apartment. Some places also ask for you to pay rent up front for the time you stay there, or at least pay for first and last months rent.

Home stay Programs*

Another option for off campus housing is through a home stay program, this is where a student is matched with a family for housing and possibly some meals. The following companies help match students with potential host families. To apply, please visit one of the web pages listed here: 

StudentLink International

Universal Student Housing

Off-Campus Housing at University Auxiliary Services, Inc.*

Another option to housing on campus is University Glen. Students may apply directly to the University Glen Apartments if they wish. To apply, please visit the University Glen Rental website.

Marriott Residence Inn*

If you would prefer to live off campus, you may contact the Marriott Residence Inn of Camarillo to apply for housing there. Their website/contact information can be found here.

Please note that this housing option is off campus and is only recommended for those who have a way of getting to and from campus through their own mode of transportation. The bus station is a 5 minute walk from this location and is a convenient and affordable way of getting to campus.

*Please note that these three housing options are run through private companies and they do not provide services on behalf of the university. Before signing a lease, read it carefully and be sure to understand all of its obligations. You will be responsible for adhering to the rules and regulations listed in their housing contracts and all issues must be handled with them directly.

What to do if you move to a new address:

If you change your address, you have 10 days to report your new address to the International Programs Office at international@csuci.edu, so that the Designated School Official can enter your new address in SEVIS.  We strongly encourage you update your address through MyCI.  However, updating your address through MyCI itself does not meet the requirement by SEVIS.  You must remember to notify the International Programs Office within 10 days.
