Housing Resources

Finding Places to Stay

Currently GWC does not provide on-campus housing, but there are several options available for long-term and short-term housing near the school for you to choose from. The options listed below are a good place to start your housing search. As you consider your options, keep in mind your budget and the type of housing experience you would like to have.


Homestay programs

Homestay is a great option for international students interested in living with a local family during their stay in Huntington Beach. Choosing homestay allows students the opportunity to practice English, participate in the daily life of a family, share meals at home, and to make new friends. There are many homestay families close to campus who look forward to welcoming you and helping you get the most out of your experience studying in the U.S. Contact these providers for more information.
