 Academic Year Student Visitors

When rooms are available and not in use by Caltech graduate students, the Housing Office offers short-term guest housing accommodations to Caltech-affiliated student visitors (over the age of 18).

  • Academic Year Guest Housing Information and Application (we are not accepting applications at this time)

Summer Student Visitors

Summer housing is limited to Caltech sponsored programs and independent undergraduate students (over the age of 18) working or doing research at Caltech or JPL.  Housing will be provided on a space available basis in our undergraduate dormitories.  The summer housing period will be June 20, 2017 through August 26, 2017 (housing outside of these dates is NOT available due to our academic schedule).

Due to the limited number of bed spaces available for independent students visiting Caltech/JPL, and the number of applications already received, we are no longer accepting new summer housing applications at this time.  If the needs of our Caltech sponsored programs are less than anticipated, we may open up the application process at the end of May.  We apologize for any inconvenience.

Here are the rates for this year's summer housing:

 Housing Type  Monthly Housing Fee  Meal Plan Fee
 Single Occupancy Room $1,116.00  $360.00
 Double Occupancy Room $986.00 (per person) $360.00


Housing for Programs with Minors

Minors (under the age of 18) can only be housed through a Caltech sponsored program. Additional information can be found through the Center for Teaching, Learning & Outreach.
