Apartments

Seattle Central’s downtown location is ideal for students interested in living in an apartment. The campus is within a 15 minute walk of over 25 apartment buildings in all price ranges, ages, and sizes.

Please review the tabs below for useful information regarding renting an apartment off-campus:

General Information about Apartments

- Students may need temporary accommodations for the days prior to moving into their apartments

- Apartments come furnished and unfurnished. Students who choose unfurnished apartments will need to buy furniture and other household necessities.

- In addition to the resources noted on this page, there are advertisements for shared housing and apartments on bulletin boards in the main building at Seattle Central.

- Some students choose to start with a homestay or an on-campus apartment, and then change to an off-campus apartment later, after they have had a chance to get acquainted with the city and to make friends.

- In the State of Washington, students under the age of 18 are generally not allowed to sign a lease and rent an apartment on their own. It is strongly recommended that students under the age of 18 live with a host family.
