Off-Campus Housing

Locating off-campus housing near Sac State will require a few days. Therefore, we recommend that you arrive in Sacramento as early as possible to begin your search for accommodations. Because attending the International Student Orientation is mandatory, you may need to schedule a move-in date before or after orientation. Please also note that most apartment complexes will not schedule move-in dates on the weekends.
