Student Housing in San Diego

About San Diego

San Diego is California’s second largest city and a cultural and historical epicenter. Its mild climate draws visitors and residents from all over the world, fostering a community as diverse as its terrain. With its Southern California suburban vibes and dozens of educational institutions, it comes as no surprise that the city is popular among students.

Sea world is one of the best-known activities in San Diego, but it barely scratches the surface of what the city has to offer. Explore Balboa park, which features the San Diego Zoo, Museum of Art and botanical gardens. Visit the history-steeped Gaslamp Quarter and Mission Basilica San Diego de Alcala, the first mission in California or hike to Point Loma and enjoy panoramic views that reach all the way to Mexico.

As a student living in San Diego, you’ll have the opportunity to experience the best of Southern California. Beaches, boardwalks and the historic Old Town district are some of the best places to take in the views. Go whale watching, hike along scenic trails or soak in the sunset. Busses and trolleys are accessible from most points in the city, as well as Uber and Lyft. Some areas also have access to the COASTER train, which serves eight stations in the county, but many students opt to take advantage of the sunny weather and bike through the city instead.

If you decide to take a stroll through the city, you’ll come across sprawling Spanish architecture and farmer’s markets. Grab a board and join the surfers and skateboarders, or stop for tacos and a mission-style burrito. Beachy bohemian culture meets an upbeat lifestyle and Tijuana influences, creating an urban scene unlike anywhere else in the world.
