De Anza, like most community colleges, does not have any dormitories or student residences.  However, De Anza is conveniently located near many housing options.  Check out the Local Housing Guide below for detailed information on temporary and permanent housing.

Housing rentals

Apartments and rooms for rent within the De Anza community are shared on Facebook.   Join the De Anza International Students group to connect with other international students.  You can find available accommodations from other students or members of the community; you can also post your own advertisements there.  Please be sure to read the tips in the Local Housing Guide above before entering into any lease agreement!


De Anza International Student Programs also works with an organization called International Student Placements that will find homestays with families for our international students. These homestays can provide daily meals (breakfast and dinner) and serve as excellent opportunities for students to learn more about the American culture and improve their English skills. If you prefer to live on your own or with other students (and you are 18 years or older), you can also contact the ISP homestay program for apartment living and shared housing options.
