Loyola Marymount University Off Campus Apartments

Ready for an Apartment near LMU?

Picture this: You are sitting at a café, sipping on a virgin piña colada, and watching the sunset over the ocean. You breathe deep and realize you are in the prime of your life and living in paradise. After some time contemplating your blessed soul, you look down at your table and decide that it is time to start your ten page paper that is due 8 p.m. for your Anthropology class at Loyola Marymount. It’s hard to be stressed in paradise.

Palm Trees and Books

Attending a college that is right by the beach might be therapeutic, but it certainly does not totally alleviate the stress students feel when faced with the rigorous academic programs at LMU. The small size of the school means smaller classes, so professors tend to know when students are not on top of their game. The upside? Professors are very approachable, know students on an individual level, and are invested in the success of the people in their classes. Loyola Marymount is known for its location and academics, but also for the beautiful and well-kept facilities that students can enjoy. Athletic folk will enjoy watching the women’s volleyball and basketball team, and maybe even participating in some IM Ultimate Frisbee games themselves. With all the sunshine and beauty of the school, it is hard to be unhappy—unless you are homeless, that is. Luckily off campus housing is available!

An Apartment Getaway

It is a necessity for most students to live off campus at some point in their experience at LMU, due to limited on campus housing. Students flock to areas like Marina del Rey and Playa del Rey. These areas are filled to the brim with affordable apartment complexes, but don’t waste time getting your hands on a room because they can go fast. Our apartment guide will direct you to areas and apartments that fit you best. Once you get one of these apartments, you will begin to realize the true majesty that is Los Angeles. True, a car is often required to do most activities, but the university’s Lion Express shuttle or the Santa Monica Big Blue Bus are also available means of transportation that students can enjoy. Once students learn to navigate their surroundings, they will soon become aware that Los Angeles is one big playground.

Git It Gurl

Los Angeles has much to offer. In areas like Sunset strip, Hollywood, and Silverlake bars, clubs, and music venues are at every turn. Neighborhoods have drastically different cultures, so there really is something for everyone. The gay scene in LA is almost comparable to San Francisco’s with areas like West Hollywood and clubs like Akbar at 4356 West Sunset Blvd, The Abby and TigerHeat. To see your favorite musicians check out venues like The Roxy, The Smell, The Echo, and Amoeba. For youngins under 21, party hard around campus, throw a bonfire at the beach, or take advantage of your new apartment and invite everyone over for a shindig. Hopefully your landlord won’t call the cops… Students who go to Loyola Marymount rave about its academics and location. You will truly find yourself in a

    It's tough to live in LA without a car, but if you want an area where you can forget about your car for the weekend, try an apartment near the beach in Santa Monica or Venice Beach. Stow a beach cruiser bike in your apartment and you can go all weekend without getting in a car, with plenty of restaurants, bars, and shopping nearby.

    Living in the Westwood neighborhood in Los Angeles as a college student is a guaranteed good time out. With UCLA, USC and SMC within driving distance of your apartment, college frat, sorority and sporting events are definitely in your future. If these things do not appeal to you, take a stab at Jerry’s Famous Deli for late night eats with the stars, Ohara’s where everyone will know your name or the Hollywood bowl for some of the best concerts in SoCal.

  • where is in LA can I find a relaxed neighborhood and near of nightlife locals?

    While it is hard to define “local nightlife” in a city and county as large as Los Angles, my recommendation is based on locality that highlights the best attributes of L.A…The weather of course. Griffith Park/Los Feliz has the perfect mixture of karaoke, dive, lounges, and sports bars that are tailored within easy walking distance to the residence that reside there.

  • Is there any eco friendly rentals?

    Eco friendly apartments in Los Angeles is a difficult standard by which to judge and you'd have to check with apartments individually to find out what kind of gray water or green roof types of features that their buildings incorporate.

  • What would an ideal weekend be like in Los Angeles?

    With so much to do in Los Angeles, it's hard to pin down an ideal weekend. Outdoor lovers can begin their weekend with a trip to the sprawling Griffith Park, one of the largest urban parks in the world, and then head to the Venice Beach Boardwalk for some excellent shopping and dining. After some people watching on the boardwalk, head to one of LA's many museums, like the Natural History Museum, the J. Paul Getty Museum, or Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum. Top off your perfect Los Angeles weekend with a relaxing trip to the San Antonio Winery.

  • Does Los Angeles have a downtown area where a lot of people walk around?

    The area that is known as Downtown LA is the central business district of Los Angeles. However, it is also home to the city's Grand Avenue cultural corridor. Although the neighborhood had deteriorated somewhat after the advent of the automobile and freeways, the area has turned itself around drastically in recent years, in part due to new buildings, bars, hotels, shops, and restaurants sprouting up across the neighborhood. Located in Beverly Hills, Rodeo Drive, of course, is one of the most famous--albeit expensive--shopping destinations in the world.

  • Are there museums in Los Angeles or nearby?

    Yes. In fact, Los Angeles has more museums per capita than any other city in the world. Some of the city's art museums are among the most notable. These include the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Getty Center, and the Museum of Contemporary Art. In addition, Gallery Row is home to a plethora of art galleries, which draws thousands during the monthly Downtown Art Walk. Other museums include the California Science Center, the Museum of Neon Art, the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County, and the Hollywood Wax Museum.

  • Are there local sporting events in Los Angeles?

    Yes, there are quite a few local sporting events in Los Angeles. Los Angeles is home to several professional sports teams, including the Los Angeles Dodgers of Major League Baseball, the Los Angeles Kings of the National Hockey League, the Los Angeles Clippers and Los Angeles Lakers of the National Basketball Association, and the Los Angeles Sparks of the Women's National Basketball Association. For Major League Soccer, the Los Angeles Galaxy and Club Deportivo Chivas USA are based in nearby Carson, California. In addition, the week-long US Open of Surfing takes place every summer in nearby Huntington Beach, California.

  • any eco friendly apartments?

    That's a great question, but we have no good way to really search for that mainly because we haven't found many apartments who describe themselves or advertise themselves as being eco friendly or green. We have many articles on our blog about living green in an apartment, but we'd recommend looking at apartments that allow you to walk or bike rather than drive and have recycling and composting programs. You can inquire further to see if buildings have grey water systems or a green roof or use eco friendly paint, carpet, etc.
