CPSOM will be utilizing a combination of houses that it owns and leases from local realtors and private landlords in Murrieta. The houses are generally 4 bedrooms, shared living & dining spaces, kitchen, 2-3 bathrooms, laundry & some with front and back yards.
Each House will accommodate on average 6-8 students depending on size.
This includes electricity, water, waste, lawn care, gas and maintenance of all facilities. It does not include internet or any television streaming services. Student Housing is located within close proximity to the campus and does not require any additional transport. However, you may consider purchasing a car or a form of transport as there is a lot to do in the surrounding areas, including beautiful beaches, Disneyland, Big Bear skiing, Hollywood and adventures in San Diego, Palm Springs and other surrounding cities.
Most College Houses are semi-furnished and include basic dining, seating, and kitchen utensils along with a washing machine and dryer. If you require additional cooking utensils you will need to source those yourselves. Occasionally, the College receives donations of furniture and household items from the local church members/community, which are then shared amongst the College houses. Previous students will sometimes leave furniture and household items behind when they move out for the new students arriving to use as well. All houses will have air conditioning and heating and we ask students to be conscientious with not overusing or leaving those running in an unnecessary manner.
It is not practical or indeed possible for CPSOM to conduct tours or private viewings of properties before you move in. You can, however, view the virtual tour of houses online to gain an understanding of what each one looks like.
CPSOM requires two weeks of rent as a security bond for any potential damage that occurs in the house. Each house bond covers the entire house with the damage being assessed at the end of the student year and it is taken out from the student's deposit. Should the house be in the same condition as when a student moves in, they can expect the full bond to be returned to them at the end of the year.
You will have to pay up to four weeks rent upon arrival depending on our rent cycle. The rent cycles are on a monthly basis and run on the 1st of each month. We only accept payments by debit or credit card on the day you arrive. If you do not have a debit/credit card we suggest you set up a temporary travel card that works like a debit card. You can pre-load funds onto the card.
Our student accommodation move in dates vary according to the capacity we have at any time. It is on a first come first served basis if you are interested you should complete the Accommodation application form which you can find online or with your enrollment counselor.
We try to accommodate every applicant and strongly recommend you apply as early as possible in order to secure yourself a spot. Once you have been accepted into CPSOM, we keep you updated as to when your accommodation will become available. Our student housing officer will liaise with you directly and help ensure all your questions are answered.
When filling the Accommodation application form you will need to pay an application fee of $75. Please note that if you change your mind and no longer require college accommodation, your Application fee are non-refundable. (If we are not given 21 days’ notice before opening day of CPSOM Accommodation).
Once all the required details of the Accommodation application are filled in you can submit the application. It will then be processed straight away and you will receive an email with further information.
If you are married, you can apply for CPSOM Accommodation. The Accommodation application fee and the Utility & Maintenance fee are charged per person. If you are both going to attend college then you will need to fill in separate application forms. If only one of you is attending college then you need to make the correct selection on the application form and the spouse who is attending CPSOM will be invoiced for both your application fees. We generally try and allocate married students together with other married students. We cannot always do this however as it depends on the number of married students applying and the availability of properties.
Due to child protection rules & regulations, we cannot provide CPSOM accommodation for applicants with children. If you require help with finding accommodation in the area we recommend you look on the website trulia.com and search the Murrieta area.
Please book a flight that arrives in San Diego on a weekday (Monday to Friday) between 5am to 3pm (Pacific West Standard). This will allow our team to help you settle in. There different options for you to get to our CPSOM Campus (e.g. Uber, taxi, public transportation). Once you have applied for CPSOM Accommodation will send you all required information regarding your arrival and travel to our Campus. We have a “Welcome team” that will meet you when you arrive at our Campus and that will help you settle in. They will take you to the accommodation team who will explain the housing contract that needs to be signed, process your payments and then issue you your key/s. The Welcome Team can also organise a shopping trip to the local supermarket so you can buy any essentials or food needed. Once all that is complete they will arrange for you to be transported to your allocated apartment/house. There is Wi-Fi at the campuses so you can contact your family and friends to let them know you have arrived safely.
If your flight arrives after business hours (Monday to Friday) we will be able to organise a student/volunteer to meet you, at your allocated house/apartment.

You will then need to come to our College campus the following business day to complete the necessary paperwork and meet the Welcome Team. If your flight arrives on a weekend, you will need organise your own hotel accommodation and then come to our campus the following business day.
It is the responsibility of the students living in the property to ensure that the interior and exterior of the property is kept in a neat and tidy condition. If there are issues identified then students are to contact the Dean of Students who will refer the matter to our facilities team. CPSOM will carry out inspections throughout the semester to ensure the property is maintained to an acceptable standard.
CPSOM Accommodation is an extension of CPSOM. Therefore, if students are found to be living or acting in a manner which is not in accordance with the Student Code of Conduct and the guidelines contained in the Student Handbook they will be issued with a written warning and possibly suspension. Continuing behavioral issues may result in further action so it is important to refer to the Student Handbook – Student Behaviour. Non-payment of rent can also lead to students being suspended so it is important to make sure that rent is paid on a timely basis. Any late payment will be back charged $15 per day for every day that is missed.
