An off-campus housing website is available to provide the maximum amount of information on vacant rental properties in the surrounding community while minimizing the time required to do a search. The website features comprehensive rental information including photographs, virtual tours and driving instructions. Searching the database may be refined as needed - for example, by neighborhood or by price range - and is free to students, faculty and staff. Students also may use the site to list vacant rental property or to look for a roommate to share accommodations. The website is provided as a service to CSULB by My Ideal Home Network and may be viewed at www.housing.csulb.edu/offcampus.
