Living on campus
Cal State L.A. offers 192 fully furnished apartments just steps away from classes, the library, student union and athletic facilities. The two- and four-bedroom units, which have communal laundry facilities, computer labs, and recreational rooms, hold up to 1,000 residents.
Commuting to campus
If a campus apartment is not what you are looking for, don’t fret there are plenty of other options and places to live nearby. In fact, the majority of students—roughly 96 percent—drive, ride the bus, take the train or walk to campus.
The University’s location, situated at the meeting point of a handful of local communities and just miles away from downtown L.A., makes it easy to access from almost anywhere. It is also home to a Metrolink train and bus station, which provides daily service to communities miles and miles away.
