Independent Housing

Finding your own living situation

Another option for FIDM Students is Independent Housing, meaning the student will locate and make arrangements for his or her own housing. The FIDM Housing Office is happy to assist students with apartment and roommate referrals. Students will then contact the different apartment complexes and potential roommates directly. The properties that are used by FIDM Student Housing are also available to students independently, however, the rates will not be the same as those offered by Student Housing.
