GST Language Center – Housing

This institution offers no residential housing.  The vast majority of students live nearby in apartments.  GTS and GTSLC offer housing referrals, however, and below is a partial list of contacts and information that may help students find housing.

The housing options listed below are conveniently located within an easy distance of the school, and within walking distance to a bus or subway (The Metro) location. For bus, subway routes and timetables, please visit the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority. 

We advise you to call these businesses for their current rates as they are subject to change without notice. Research each of these options to determine which one will meet your unique housing requirements.  You can go to and find the distance from our school to the apartments.  Just type the address of the apartment in the lower left fields that say “Get directions to above location”.
