What are housing options for my student after the first year?

Many students will stay in their house after their first year. If they don't have that option, they can explore additional housing on campus or your Techer can join and search the Caltech Marketplace for an off-campus roommate.

Please contact Jennifer Howes, the Director of Health and Counseling Services at 626.395.8331, jhowes@caltech.edu.
