Welcome to the California State University San Marcos Off-Campus Housing (OCH101) website. The Off-Campus Housing Service is provided to our students, staff, faculty and community as a resource.
Off-Campus Housing 101 (OCH101) and CSUSM have partnered to provide students a free resource to find suitable property listings to CSUSM students, faculty and staff.
If you need additional support or information regarding campus resources, please contact us at (760) 750-4935.
Please Note: In August 2008, a new rooming house ordinance went into effect in the City of San Marcos. This may affect you if you are renting a home in San Marcos. Please be aware that the City of San Marcos limits the number of leases that can be held on a single family home property. Homes can only have fewer than five leases or rental agreements. Otherwise, the home is considered a commercial endeavor, which is prohibited. The City has a section on its Website about the new ordinance. Please take a moment and visit Rooming House Ordinance to familiarize yourself with the information. Also please visit the Good Neighbor Guidelines for valuable information.
Disclaimer: The Off-Campus Housing Service is provided by California State University San Marcos Student Life and Leadership as a resource for our students, staff, faculty and community. The University has not inspected, approved, or disapproved of the facilities listed; and therefore cannot be responsible for the listings. Rental Listings CANNOT be restricted due to age, race, color, national origin, religion, marital status, gender, sexual orientation, physical disability, or families with children.
