Housing Disclaimer

The inclusion of any rental, apartment, or agency in the Housing Binders does not represent an endorsement of services or facilities by American River College or the Center for Leadership and Development, nor does it guarantee vacancies. Please be aware that American River College does not inspect any housing facilities. We do not assume responsibility for the condition of these housing facilities, or the character of any applicant, landlord, or tenant.

Housing Binders

American River College is a non-residential college campus. To assist students in finding housing, Center for Leadership and Development staff have compiled two binders with local apartment buildings and contact information. Sometimes, these apartment complexes may offer special "move-in discounts" or ARC student discounts. When contacting these potential apartment managers, be sure to mention that you are an ARC student and inquire about possible discounts.

Roommate Information

The Center for Leadership and Development provides a Housing Binder for students looking for roommates. If you are looking for a roommate and would like to post an announcement, please stop by the Center for Leadership and Development to have your information included.
