Housing Assistance

Introduction

The Student Off-campus Housing Assistance website is maintained by the SRJC Student Affairs Office as a service to the entire SRJC community. This includes students, faculty, staff and landlords. It is our intention to provide people with current available housing listings in the local area. These are mostly comprised of shared accommodations but occasionally we get a vacant studio, house or condo.

Landlords who wish to post a listing, please see the two options available: our JC-only listing service which is offered free, and the other which reaches a wider audience for a small fee.  

We advise that you start your housing search now to make it easier to find a place to live. Please make sure that you check out the information about minimum income requirements and co-signors below before seeking any housing in Sonoma County.

Note: The Student Off-campus Housing Assistance Website is an informational site only. The Student Affairs Office has not inspected, certified or approved these properties. Before signing a rental agreement or making a payment, we strongly recommend that you personally inspect the unit and meet the landlord or property manager as well as other tenants.

SRJC accepts no liability for any housing arrangements made through the use of this web site.

SRJC District Police recently received a report of a housing rental scam targeting students. Please be alert to this situation and remain cautious when considering housing from a landlord you do not know.

Below are a few recommendations to protect yourself from scams:

  • Deal locally with potential landlords and actually meet them. Avoid individuals that claim they cannot meet you in person, or say someone else will meet you instead.
  • Don’t wire funds and avoid cashier’s checks. Be suspicious of any mention of cash, money orders, cashier’s checks, wire transfer or bank account information.
  • Check the individual’s references and do a Google search of their name.
  • Ask them for their phone number and full name. If the individual becomes angry, it’s probably a scam and you should cease communications.
  • Refuse over-payment.
  • Do not share personal information unless you have verified the person’s identity and legitimacy.
  • If you suspect a scam or find yourself being scammed, please immediately contact SRJC District Police at (707) 527-1000.

Please share this information with anyone you know who may be seeking housing. Thank you for your support in keeping our students and community safe.
