On-Campus Student Housing Coming to LTCC

'Finding the Funding' Story  |  Housing Infosheet (PDF)  Groundbreaking Program (PDF)  |  Highlight Video

With a successful construction bidding process behind it and a building contract now in place, Lake Tahoe Community College is moving ahead quickly with its on-campus student housing project. LTCC was able to move from receipt of nearly $40 million in state funding for the project to start of site development in under one year.

Development of the residential living site on the south side of campus began in May 2023, and the projected opening has been moved back by a few months to July 2025. When the doors open, this housing will serve full-time, income-qualifying California resident students. It will provide 100 beds in either double or single-room setups, with easy access to public transportation at LTCC’s Mobility Hub, and connecting bicycle and pedestrian paths heading both north and south of campus.

The facility will be approximately 32,000 sq. ft. with separate living units, shared community spaces, and close proximity to the college’s Student Center, which houses a commercial-grade kitchen and a large, open space for sit-down dining service.

LTCC established maximum rental amounts to ensure that income-qualifying students can access this housing. Rental price per occupant for a double room is $500/month, and a single room is priced at $795/month.

Community Housing Information

LTCC understands that the need for student housing exceeds the amount of campus-sponsored housing currently available. We are committed to providing relevant information about other community housing options to assist students in their search. We suggest students start their search for housing several months before their expected move-in date.
The inclusion of any apartment or agency on the list below does not represent an endorsement of services or facilities, nor does it guarantee vacancies. Please be aware that LTCC does not inspect any housing facilities. We do not assume responsibility for the condition of these housing facilities, nor for the character of any applicant, property owner, or tenant. Students are strongly advised to visit properties in person before committing to a lease.

Be aware of scams and avoid rentals if:

  • The rent cost seems significantly lower than other apartments;
  • The landlord or manager cannot meet you in person and/or you are unable to see the apartment in person;
  • You are asked to wire transfer money or send money via Western Union, Money Gram, or other wire transfer services; usually rental fees and deposits are expected to be paid by check or money order; or
  • The landlord or manager seems too pushy or is trying to persuade you to sign a contract without showing the apartment unit.
