Student Housing

New students are not required to live in CCH housing but we do recommend CCH housing as a starting point for Freshman students new to California.  Student housing serves as a gateway to success for students as they enter CCH and advance through their educational careers. Students have the option of living in a dorm-style campus environment (Meridian Pointe) or in an apartment-style residential environment (Oakwood or Terraces). While we try to accommodate each student’s first housing choice, due to the limited number of units available at each property, we are not always able to do so.  Your application will be processed and a housing contract for your first academic year (9 months) will be sent via email that requires a parent/guardian to co-sign.  You will also be required to pay your first month’s rent prior to move in unless you are fully covered by financial aid.

Once we receive your housing application, we will contact you to discuss your housing selections and our current availability. Students should apply for housing only after they have been accepted for admission. There are a limited number of rooms available at each housing community and all housing charges are billed to your CCH student account. All rooms are fully furnished.

Oakwood is a residential housing community located 5 miles from CCH and in close proximity to multiple business centers, a wide variety of shopping choices, and an abundance of dining options. Amenities include a business center, fitness center, swimming pool and spa. Shuttle service to the CCH campus before and after class is provided free of charge.

Terraces on the Boulevard is an apartment community located 3 blocks from the CCH campus. Amenities include on-site laundry, parking, swimming pool and fitness center. All apartments come with air conditioning, refrigerator and stove.

Meridian Pointe Dorms is located across the street from the campus of California State University Northridge (CSUN), a university community of nearly 34,000 students on a 356-acre campus located 5 miles from CCH. Amenities include a fitness center, swimming pool with jacuzzi, study rooms, game room and screening room.

Housing Application

To apply for CCH sponsored housing, you must complete a housing application and submit it to the CCH Housing office. You can apply online or you can fill out a paper application and submit your application to us by mail or fax.  All students who apply for CCH housing are required to pay a $40.00 non-refundable application fee and a $450.00 refundable security deposit with their housing application, for a total upfront fee of $490.00.  The security deposit is returned to the student once the student moves out, less any charges for cleaning and repairs. Please note that the security deposit is NOT refundable in the event a room is held for a student and later the student decides not to attend CCH or decides to secure their own housing.

Non-CCH Housing

For students who desire to arrange their own housing, the Columbia College Hollywood campus is located in a heavily populated residential area and apartment options are abundant. Rental rates vary depending on the type of unit desired and number of roommates. If you wish to obtain your own housing, we have arranged for a free apartment search through our affiliation with both and Zillow. If you need any additional assistance with housing, please feel free to contact us.
