More than 500 early-career scientists and engineers work at Caltech to advance their research and training. The Housing Office has 55 apartments available to them for short-term leasing during the first year of their appointment.
Due to extremely limited space in Caltech Housing, we are unable to accommodate visiting Caltech postdocs who do not have an active Caltech appointment, nor do we house JPL postdocs.
New Postdocs may only remain on the waitlist for up to one year from the date of their application or their appointment start date, whichever comes first.
Gas and power are billed to Caltech but paid by you through your Bursar's account. We provide a detailed explanation of this process on our Utility Charges page.
If you have the option to extend our office will reach out to your 90 days prior to end of your lease via email offering you this option to extend at the new rate. If you wish to accept your option to extend we will then send you an Adobe e-signature document that you can sign online.
