Housing Information
Like most community colleges, Foothill does not have housing on campus; however, the International Programs Office offers resources and assistance to help you find comfortable housing options. 

Homestay Housing
Homestays are a housing option available to international students at Foothill College. If you have never lived abroad or in the United States, or you are under 18 years old, we strongly recommend that you consider living in homestay housing for at least the first 3 months. Homestay can be prearranged before your arrival in the United States.

What is a Homestay?
Homestay housing offers a safe living environment with a local American host family.  A homestay provides:

  • A furnished private room
  • Option of two home-cooked meals per day or access to a kitchen
  • An opportunity to experience American culture and to improve English skills

Apartments
One of the most popular housing options at Foothill College is local apartments or single-family homes. Many students also choose to live with roommates in apartments or houses to reduce housing costs.  Generally, housing costs in the Bay Area are more expensive than other parts of the country but are similar in cost to many large cities in the United States and around the world.

How to Find an Apartment
Here are some suggestions for finding an apartment:

  • Join our closed “Foothill International Students” Facebook page where you can communicate with current or other new students who are looking for roommatesOrientation is also a good time to meet other students who are looking to share housingConsult housing Web sites, local newspapers, and magazines.  Please note that if you find a rental on a website we recommend that you visit the complex in person before signing a lease and do not pay a deposit by money order or wire transfer.
