** Please keep in mind the following...
As with most community colleges in California, Glendale Community College does not provide on-campus housing or dormitory facilities for its students. The International Student Office cannot act as a "real estate agent" for off-campus apartments and the signing of rental and leasing contracts. Students can find a variety of off-campus apartments and housing for rent in the local area. Currently, a one-bedroom apartment or smaller-size "studio" apartment in the surrounding Glendale area will rent from approximately $900 to $1,200+ per month. Note that costs will vary greatly depending on size and other amenities & accommodations. Most apartments do not come furnished and will require a "security deposit" of some amount. [Some apartment units can be rented on a monthly basis; others will require the signing of a full year rental contract.]
