Housing Mission Statement and Policy

The Housing Office furthers the goals of Caltech by providing convenient, attractive housing. To this end, the Housing Office guarantees housing for all first year undergraduate students and all first year graduate students. After these guarantees, our priority is to provide transitional housing for newly hired postdoctoral fellows and limited housing for students with families. These rentals are managed by the Housing Office in accordance with these priorities and the current needs of the Institute.
