Once you feel comfortable in Fullerton and make friends, you may want to move into an apartment with other students. To save money, most students share a bedroom with a roommate. For example, four students will live in a two-bedroom apartment. You can find homestay, apartment, and roommate information below or view the housing resources binder at the ISC.
One of the best ways to improve your English and learn about American customs is to stay with an American family. Fullerton College works in partnership with three homestay programs that you can choose from: Homestay Services International (HSI), International Student Placements (ISP), Universal Student Housing. Each program offers great services so be sure to review the applications and decide which program and cost works best for you.
