Student Housing Resources

General Housing Information

PAU does not have on-campus housing. Many PAU students live in towns that are near to where they study or receive clincal training at the Allen Calvin Campus or Stanford Psychiatry Building in Palo Alto, the PAU-Los Altos campus (including the Gronowski Center) in Los Altos, or near our PAU De Anza location in Cupertino. Other cities near our campuses include Mountain View, Redwood City, Menlo Park, San Mateo, Santa Clara, and Sunnyvale. Some students live in San Francisco, which is a 45-60 minute drive away, depending on traffic, and some live in San Jose, 30-60 minutes away depending on traffic.  You can use the tool below to focus your housing search on any of the cities or locations in the Bay Area.  We also have additional tools available on our helpful links tab.

Roommate Matching Survey and Roommate Questionaire Spreadsheet

To assist both new and returning students in their housing search, PAU has set up a roommate matching survey.  The roommate matching survey is sent to all new students and returning students.  Once you complete the questionaire, your information will be added to the Roommate Questionaire Spreadsheet.  This spreadsheet is only available to those students with a Palo Alto University email address, and has two tabs:

  • Looking For Housing/Roommates:  This tab is populated by those who have completed the survey and are looking for housing.
  • Available Housing:  This tab is populated by PAU students who already have a place to live and are seeking roommates.  Occasionally, Student Affairs also receives requests from members of the community with available housing.  We will add this to the Available Housing tab when we receive them.

Once you have successfully found a roommate/housing, please return to the spreadsheet to remove your information so other students still looking will not continue to contact you.

If you are a community member with available housing that you would like to share with PAU students, please email the details, including location, rent, etc., to
