ICLA students are classified as on-campus residential students. Students reside at the Toluca Hills Apartments, a ten-minute walk from the James B. Pendleton Center where classes are held and the Ithaca LA offices are located. The apartments are also close to Burbank, Universal City, Studio City and Hollywood. The complex is adjacent to the Warner Bros. Studio lot, and conveniently located near NBC and The Walt Disney Studios.

Typically, four students share a two-bedroom/two-bath apartment, with two students in each bedroom. Mixed gender apartments are allowed if all prospective residents for a two bedroom apartment request to live together. Students may be assigned to a single bedroom or private apartment based on approval from the Student Accessibility Services office.

Pets are not allowed in ICLA apartments. Exceptions can be made with approval from the Student Accessibility Services office.

If you need approval for a service animal or for a special living arrangement, please follow the procedures from the Student Accessibility Services Office.
