Instead of academic year long dorms, we offer all year long apartments with separate legally binding lease contracts. Housing Services is a separate auxiliary entity with an accounting system distinct from other Fuller departments. As a result, financial transactions and contracts with other Fuller offices- including financial aid payments received by Student Financial Services-do not fulfill contractual obligations to Housing Services.

You must apply to Fuller Housing separately from Admissions. We strongly urge you to apply for Housing immediately, as the Housing Office can receive your application even before you receive an Admissions decision. Once you hear back about your Admissions decision, it is your responsibility to inform the Housing Office. MORE INFO >

Two Options for Living at Fuller

Traditional Apartment Units

The majority of our units are located within two blocks of the Fuller campus in the heart of downtown Pasadena. Most complexes are so close you can walk to class. The farthest is a few miles from campus. We have one main children's playground park and a smaller play area specifically designed for toddlers aptly named the Tot Lot (click here to see the play areas).
