Student Housing Resources
While Charles R. Drew’s campus does not include student housing, we do want to help you find a home that’s conveniently located and fits your needs as a student. We have partnered with Off Campus Partners to provide students with an off-campus housing portal to assist students with searching for local housing, as well as searching for verified CDU roommates.
Only individuals with a verified cdrewu.edu email can access the full site, so students can rest assured that the roommate profiles on the site are other CDU students. If you are an incoming student and haven’t received your cdrewu.edu email yet, please email email@example.com to set up a guest account; please note that guest accounts cannot post for roommates.
- Search platforms like Zillow, Hotpads, and Zumper.
- Familiarize yourself with first-time renter tips
- LA County is made up of dozens of cities, and even more zip codes, making this zip code guide a helpful tool to find out the exact city and zip code of properties you’re interested in.
- Consider your commute; we have students from across the LA metro area, however should you choose to live further away from campus, be aware that your commute times will vary.
CDU scholarships can be applied to the cost of housing. Additionally, federal aid and state aid can also be applied to the cost of housing and other living expenses. For additional information on funding the cost of tuition, housing and fees please contact the financial aid and scholarship office: firstname.lastname@example.org.
While CDU is working on a solution to this question, we currently do not have any transportation available for students living off campus. We highly suggest you utilize one of our recommended apartment search engines that have a transit overlay program included. This will allow you to see city bus routes, train routes and also be informed of any bus/train lines that may be closed due to construction. You can also save additional funds by applying for a discounted Metro student card at https://www.taptogo.net/Reduced_Fare#college.
As with any other community, there will be pockets of “good” and “bad”. Before you make the move, make sure you discuss what safety features you expect your new apartment to provide, such as a gated community, complex parking (versus street parking), well lit, etc. Opportunity makes the thief, if you look off guard you are a target, no matter where you are. Depend on yourself to remain safe, not the city you live in. For more information on how to stay safe (wherever you are), check out the Los Angeles Police Departments, Self-Protection and Personal Safety Tips.
