Where should I plan to stay while conducting my housing search?

We suggest that you make hotel, motel or youth hostel reservations for up to five nights after your arrival, as the majority of students typically find housing within five to seven days. Because Monterey is a tourist destination, motels and hotels are generally more expensive on Friday and Saturday nights, so we recommend that you arrive as early in the week as possible.  Please visit the temporary accommodation listings on the Monterey Institute website.

I think I want to have a roommate for the summer—is that possible?

Many of the SILP students room with current MIIS students or with their SILP classmates. Student Services makes it easy for you to connect with other students in order to find a roommate. The MIIS Housing Website has a built in roommate finder that will allow you to create a profile, similar to a Facebook profile, so that you may search for a roommate. We also maintain a SILP Facebook group for all incoming SILP students.

What is the MIIS Off-Campus Housing website AND how do I get access to it?

The MIIS Off-Campus Housing website is offered by the Office of Student Services to help all MIIS students locate and secure housing. The online system makes it easier than ever to search for housing listings, contact landlords or student sublets, and decide where you will be living during your summer in Monterey. Once you have been accepted into the Summer Intensive program and pay your tuition deposit, the Office of Student Services will send you information on how you can access the housing website and create a profile that will allow you to search all of the available listings.

How should I time my trip to Monterey?

If you choose to wait until you are in Monterey to secure housing, we suggest that you arrive a week to ten days before the start of the SILP program so that you can find housing and get settled before your summer schedule of classes begin.
