All online services listed here are privately owned companies and are not associated with Valencia College; the contact is provided here only as information about alternative housing possibilities and any arrangements you choose to make are strictly between you (the student) and the housing company.
Having a roommate can help you adjust to American life by giving you someone to share your experiences with—it’s also a great way to save money on rent.
Renting an apartment is an ideal housing option for long-term studies. Many apartments include utility costs such as water, electric, cable and Internet within the monthly fees and will also take care of maintenance and repairs. There are plenty of apartment complexes near each of Valencia’s campuses, many within walking distance. A web search using a phrase such as “apartments near Valencia College” may help you find apartments and other housing options close to the campus you will be attending. You may also consider using an online service.
Homestays give you the opportunity to live with an American host or family. Their emphasis is on safe, quality and affordable housing with hosts who are pre-screened, interested in cultural exchange and happy to open their home to a student. Students can make arrangements for homestays through one of our housing partners.
Hotels may be a short-term housing solution for students who intend to study through the Intensive English Program for only a few weeks, or for degree-seeking students who need a temporary place to stay until they can find permanent housing.
Students are responsible for making their own hotel reservations. All hotels are run independent of Valencia College. Valencia College acts only as an agent providing information about nearby hotels and accommodations. It is understood and agreed that Valencia College assumes no responsibility for, nor guarantees performance of, and in no event shall be liable for, any loss, damage or claims associated with your stay at these nearby accommodations.
