International Student Housing

Like most U.S. community colleges, Contra Costa College, Diablo Valley College, and Los Medanos College do not have on-campus housing. Our colleges do not provide nor are responsible for any off-campus housing services. However, there are many off-campus housing options for international students near each college. These include unfurnished and furnished apartments, rooms for rent, and living with a family (homestay).
