About the Housing

California Student Housing is located on the campus of Columbia Community College, and is within walking distance of all classes. The CSH housing community consists of four, three-story residential structures, plus a main building containing the administrative office, recreation room, library/study room, and laundry facility. Each apartment contains 750 square feet which is much larger than comparable student housing facilities. The apartments are easily accessible to parking and all key areas of the campus. The apartments host a mix of female-only and male-only units. An in-house security officer and a camera surveillance system provide security.

Bedrooms, Bathrooms and Kitchens

Each of the two-bedroom apartments enjoys a private entrance from an outside staircase. Residents have the option of either single or double bedroom occupancy. This translates to two-, three- or four-student occupancies in each apartment. The bedrooms are furnished with twin beds with mattresses, plus wardrobes, night tables, lamps and desks. Residents provide their own bedding.Bathrooms are equipped with two sinks, a shower, and a separate, private, enclosed commode area. Enjoy the company and comfort of up to three roommates, but with enough of your own space to concentrate as necessary.

Each apartment’s kitchen contains a sink, full-size refrigerator, a two-burner cook top, telephone jacks, tables, chairs, and seating and storage areas. Residents provide their own telephone service, cooking utensils, microwaves, and any other personal kitchen accessories.

Residents enjoy the exclusive ability to prepare meals in their own homes – within minutes of that first class, at lunchtime, or just a sprint from close of business at the end of the school day! However, prepaid convenience meal tickets for use in the cafeteria may be purchased in the book store.

General Housing Features and Amenities

Rental fees cover water, garbage, electricity, and pre-selected satellite TV connection.

Each apartment building is assigned a Resident Assistant (RA), whose responsibility it is to assist new residents in acclimating to student life and insuring all students a secure, calm and convenient setting in which to live and pursue educational goals.
