08.11.08: Tips for your Housing Search!

Greetings New Students!     

We recognize that finding housing can be one of the most challenging aspect of relocating to Monterey. Here are a few tips to help facilitate this process!

1 Attend one of our Housing and Insurance Information Sessions from August 12th through August 22nd (Tuesday-Friday), 10am-11am in the Holland Center.
2 Allow for at least 3-5 days to find housing.
3 Access housing resources from the Student Affairs Office on a daily basis to receive the most current rental information.
4 The most helpful housing resources to utilize are: our student housing database, Craig’s List, rental listings with property management companies, and the classifieds section of the local newspaper.
5 This rental market in Monterey may be quite different than what you are accustomed to. Many of the rentals are older and may not have new carpet, an updated kitchen, etc. So, if you find something that you like but it’s not the “ideal” place, you may still want to consider taking it. Rentals go quickly, and if you wait to find that “perfect” place, you may find yourself still looking for housing after many days!
6 Looking for housing is a “full time job,” so it is important that you devote enough time to this process!
7 Please come to the Student Affairs Office if you have any questions or need assistance. We are located at 440 Van Buren Street, and we are open 9am-5pm Monday through Friday.
