Do You Know About Off-Campus Housing?

Finding housing in Humboldt can be hard. The Cal Poly Humboldt Off-Campus Housing Office, in partnership with people across the campus and community, has created an online course for you to be able to find, secure, and happily live in rental housing. It's part of Cal Poly Humboldt's commitment to Basic Needs and is the first of its kind in the nation.

HTLC bannerThe Humboldt Tenant Landlord Collaboration's course, Living in Community, uses an equitable lens to address housing challenges. Modules include tenant and landlord best practices, finance, mediation/conflict resolution, data/phisher protection, trash, recycling, thrift-store items, emotional/service animals, community resources, and  Humboldt Housing Liaison support.

You will hear community stories, learn about shared terms and definitions, watch videos of Humboldt community members' experiences with rental housing, read about landlord and tenant perspectives, and build skills and knowledge through interactive exercises.

Once you conclude the course, you will receive a Certificate of Completion (that you could include with your rental application), a Humboldt County Renters Handbook, and access to community housing resources.
