Student affordable housing (Rapid Rehousing):

Academic year-long support for students experiencing homelessness. Sac State Student Affordable Housing, or officially known as Rapid Rehousing (RRH) is reserved for students who are homeless (living in their cars, staying temporarily on a friend or relative’s couch, or staying somewhere not normally meant for dwelling). This program is designed to quickly house a student whether or not they are able to pay rent or a deposit and support the student with a lease and affordable housing ($400-$500/month). This is a program and includes case management services contracted by community agencies to help a student stabilize their housing, academics, and holistic wellness.
