Housing

As a CGU student, you’ll discover countless benefits to living in student housing. Classes, a quiet place to study, and the library are all within walking distance in the small city of Claremont.

There are two options a short walk from the CGU campus. Claremont Collegiate Apartments offers one-bedroom and studio apartment options for CGU students and undergraduates from nearby colleges. The Oasis Residential Commons will be for graduate students only and include classroom and group meeting spaces, a gym, swimming pool, study rooms, lounges, and much more.

Living in student housing is the best way to take advantage of all that The Claremont Colleges have to offer:

  • Four libraries
  • Five cafeterias
  • Three gyms
  • Health and counseling centers
  • Athletic facilities
  • Ethnic centers
  • Interfaith chaplaincy
  • Performing arts complex
  • Cafes and more

And you’re just a quick jump from all the dining, entertainment, nightlife, and culture the Claremont Village has to offer. The gorgeous and expansive Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden is also nearby, and the city’s Metrolink rail station offers quick and easy service to downtown Los Angeles and its Metro Rail system, now taking you as far as Santa Monica.

Off-Campus Housing Resources

For students, faculty, and staff wishing to live off campus, The Claremont Colleges’ Real Estate and Housing Office offers various forms of off-campus rental assistance, including housing and apartment rental and roommate listings. The office also functions as a full-service real estate and property management office.

Dining

On campus, Hagelbarger’s serves delicious food made from scratch daily, including soups, salads, pasta, sandwiches, and more—with vegetarian options. You can also buy assorted snacks, beverages, and Starbucks coffee. In addition, Hagelbarger’s caters on-campus events.

Several high-quality food and beverage options are just a short walk from campus. Located in the Honnold Mudd Library, the Honnold Café offers a warm, relaxing environment in which to enjoy gourmet coffee and espresso as well as delicious food and pastries. Scripps College’s Motley Coffeehouse supports sustainable supply chains in a welcoming environment that aims to foster independent thinking and purposeful change. The Grove House Kitchen serves delicious homemade, locally grown breakfast and lunch in a Craftsman-style home at Pitzer College, which serves as a social hub for students and hosts to cultural events, exhibitions, and more.

Students, faculty and staff may dine at any Claremont Colleges dining hall. State-of-the-art facilities include Harvey Mudd College’s Hoch-Shanahan Dining Commons, Scripps College’s Malott Dining Commons, and Pitzer College’s McConnell Dining Hall, all of which are popular with students and offer breakfast, lunch, and dinner options for those with or without dietary restrictions, in house and to go.
