Moving to a new city can be a difficult process, and in a city as large as Los Angeles it can be even more challenging. Most students come to CMS for only a few months, a much shorter time than the one-year leases offered by most apartment buildings. CMS is not able to offer students housing through the school, but we do what we can to assist in this transition as much as possible.
Most students at CMS will stay in one of the following types of housing units while attending CMS:
CMS is located in the Mid-Wilshire neighborhood of Los Angeles. When looking for housing, students may wish to concentrate on this area. CMS is also located directly above the Wilshire/Western purple line Metro Station. Students unable to find housing within walking distance of CMS may wish to consider residences along the Metro line. There are also a number of bus stops within one block of the CMS facility that can take students to different areas of the city. For more information on public transportation, students should consult the Los Angeles Metropolitan Transit Authority (LA Metro) website.
A Homestay is popular, quality, and affordable student housing options among International students looking for a short or long term stay with a family near their school. A homestay is a healthy environment where students practice speaking a new language and learn to merge successfully into the local culture.
CMS does not offer housing placement services or roommate matching, but we do host a CMS Housing Facebook Group where new and current students and graduates can connect and coordinate their living situations.
