FIDM is committed to helping students with their housing transition by assisting them with finding the plan that best suits their needs: FIDM Student Housing, independent housing, and roommate referrals.
Through an application process, FIDM arranges student housing in nearby privately owned and operated apartment complexes with locations in Los Angeles, Orange County, and San Diego. Numerous units in these apartment buildings have been reserved for FIDM Students only. This popular option creates an exciting community of FIDM Students in each location. Space is assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.
Independent Housing/Roommate Referrals
FIDM assists students with apartment and roommate referrals. Students are responsible to contact the different apartment complexes and potential roommates directly. The properties that are used by Student Housing are also available to students independently; however, the leasing packages and rates may not be the same.

The Metropolitan is across the street from FIDM, while the Medici is six blocks away. Six miles west of FIDM, in the heart of Los Angeles are the Park La Brea apartments.
