Student Housing

Columbia College Hollywood provides assistance to both new and continuing students who need local housing accommodations.  

We have arranged for two properties to provide student housing – Meridian Pointe and Oakwood. Columbia College Hollywood does not own, operate or control any housing properties which students may be referred to or that students may lease. The properties offering housing to Columbia College Hollywood students are non-campus properties for purposes of Clery Act reporting.

To assist students with paying housing fees, Columbia College Hollywood provides short-term credit to students to support any required payments of rent at housing properties prior to the receipt of student financial aid funding. Funds advanced by Columbia College Hollywood to students will be charged against the student’s account and documented by a housing advance agreement between Columbia College Hollywood and the student.

Students who desire to rent accommodations from referral properties should begin by submitting a housing request form along with a $50.00 non-refundable processing fee. Once a housing request form is received, the Housing office will contact you to discuss your specific needs and current property availability.  If you wish to tour a specific property, the Housing Coordinator will arrange for an on-site property tour. Because the housing request fee is non-refundable, we recommend that students submit the housing request form only after they have been accepted for admission. There are a limited number of Columbia College Hollywood housing advance agreement, all housing charges are billed to the student's account and housing charges are paid by Columbia College Hollywood on the student's behalf.

Oakwood is an apartment-style residential housing community located 5 miles from the Columbia College Hollywood campus 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.  Oakwood does not require a separate leasing application, and students are not required to pay an upfront security deposit.

Meridian Pointe is a dorm-style residential community located directly adjacent to 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 Columbia College Hollywood. Amenities include a fitness center, swimming pool with jacuzzi, study rooms, game room and screening room.  Students applying to Meridian Pointe are required to complete a separate Meridian Pointe Leasing Application.
