Our mission is to provide our clients with a world-class housing and relocation experience. Our program manages approximately 80 multi-family and single family homes ranging from one to six bedrooms. We offer these units as transitional housing to incoming Faculty, Visiting Faculty, Visiting Associates, Moore Scholars, and Postdocs.
Most of our properties are furnished and include utilities and internet for your convenience. In addition, all locations are within walking distance to the Caltech campus as well as nearby shopping, grocery stores, restaurants, and banking.
When you check in with us, you may rest assured that your unit has been cleaned thoroughly and all linens and towels have been laundered.
We require all staff to wear facial coverings and maintain a six foot distance whenever possible.
During times that we are short staffed, we will prioritize maintenance and service requests and will delay non-essential matters.
If you or someone in your household is feeling ill or exhibiting signs of COVID19, we kindly ask that you notify us before we visit your home. This way, we can take precautions to help you with your needs while keeping our staff safe and healthy.
Please view Caltech's Response to COVID19 for more information.
In order to reserve Faculty Housing, please reach out to your sponsoring Division. They will submit an application on your behalf. If you're not sure of who to reach out to, please contact us and we will coordinate an application with your Division.
We do not conduct credit checks and we do not hold refundable deposits

We kindly ask for a two week notification if you are changing your check in or check out date.
There will be no penalty for changing your dates or terminating your lease as long as we receive a two week notice.
All cancellations or arrival date changes must be received in writing no later than 14 days prior to arrival/check-in. If the housing reservation cancellation is not received within this time frame, the tenant will be responsible for the cancellation fee equivalent to 50% of the first month's rent and 50% of the Move In Fee.

We charge a one time, non-refundable Move In Fee to cover turnover and cleaning after you check out:
$600 for apartments and condos
$1,200 for single family homes
We accept pets with prior approval, and typically no more than two pets in a unit. Please speak with us if you have more than two pets. In some cases, exceptions are made (for example, if you have two dogs and a hamster).
We have a $50.00 monthly Pet Rent and a one-time, non-refundable Pet Fee of $500.00.
Once your reservation is confirmed, we will send you a Pet Application which will require proof of vaccinations and flea treatment for dogs and cats.
We do not allow aquariums in excess of 25 gallons. Terrariums are welcome.
We accept online payments via Visa or MasterCard.
For visits longer than 6 months, we will automatically set up your reservation to be billed directly to the Bursar. Upon arrival, you may visit them to set up automatic payments.
We offer a minimum one month stay and a maximum one year stay. Requests for extension will be considered close to the lease end date and is dependent on Faculty demand.
Relocating permanent Faculty can renew their lease up to three years.
