One of the many advantages to studying law at Pacific McGeorge school of Law is the affordability of housing in Sacramento, as compared to Los Angeles or San Francisco. There are hundreds of new apartment complexes in the growing Sacramento metropolitan area, each with ready access to an excellent freeway system that leaves most students just minutes from the law school.
The Housing Office, run by Nancy Whalen, housing services manager, is in Room 110 in the Administration Building. There you can obtain information about campus housing or advice about the desirable areas for off-campus housing in the local community where rooms, apartments and houses can be found. Assistance with finding law school roommates is also available should that be your choice.

To be eligible for on-campus housing, students must have been accepted for enrollment by Pacific McGeorge and have paid the complete enrollment deposits. Student tenants are selected from a waiting list maintained by the Housing Manager. On-campus housing is extremely popular, therefore, interested incoming students are encouraged to submit a request to the Admissions Office as early as possible. Student housing is available to both single and married students; however, Pacific McGeorge is unable to accommodate students with children. No preference is made between male or female students and class level has no bearing in our assignment process. Applicants for housing are chosen, in turn, from the established waiting list.
Student Resident Parking is available on the north and south sides of the campus. A limited number of underground reserved parking spaces in Blackacre are leased for a monthly fee to campus residents as they become available.
Full-time Campus Security is provided by Pacific McGeorge School of Law.
