Housing Information & Resources

California Language School does not assume responsibility for student housing, and does not have dormitory facilities under its control. However, you may browse options that are right for you on this website here.


There are many apartments available for rent in Los Angeles.

You can search for apartments right around the campus at 4Stay.com

You can also check sites like Craigslist for a list of available apartments before you arrive. Enter ‘90005’ in the ‘Search For’ line, and you will see all the places near the school. For a studio apartment, monthly rentals on Craigslist can begin at $550. For a one-bedroom apartment, rents can start at $800.

If you plan to rent or lease an apartment, contact us and we can send you a document that will help you with the process.

Hotels & Hostels

There are a number of privately owned apartments within walking distance of the CLS. If you stay a short time, or you need somewhere to stay while you can make a decision for housing, you can stay in a hotel. We recommend the following hotels:

Hostel Widblue

One of the best ways to improve your English is by living with an American family. This is called homestay.

If you would like to stay with an American family instead of living by yourself, we recommend that you contact Homestay.com. They are a separate organization from us, so you should apply directly to them with your housing request.
