Housing Resources

Welcome to CIIS!

 We are thrilled to welcome you to the San Francisco Bay Area and to our unique educational community.  This page hosts a general overview of housing resources and a peer written housing guide that we hope will help you with your transition to the Bay Area.


In the below handouts section, you will find useful tips, housing related internet sites, and short-term housing options.
If you are looking for housing in the Bay Area, be sure to sign up for the Student Listserv (see left section), where CIIS students often post about their available housing options. These are useful resources as you start your housing search in the San Francisco Bay Area
 We hope this will serve you in joining us in the Bay Area!
