Student Housing and Residential Life

Off-Campus Resources

All information regarding off-campus housing should be assessed carefully before making any legal commitments. Any references made from California State University, Monterey Bay, its sub-departments, and the University Housing Services web page do not constitute any type of legal obligation by the university, including faculty, staff, and students. 

California State University, Monterey Bay, does not constitute legal authority, nor does it provide any type of legal advice. All off-campus housing information posted on this page is done so for informational purposes only, and the university takes no responsibility for any legal contracts or agreements made. All issues resulting from or pertaining to student housing are the sole responsibility of the tenant(s) and the landlord. 

In an effort to provide more accurate off-campus housing price estimates, the CSU System has provided detailed information to assist students with finding rental rates of apartments in our area.
