Fuller Housing currently has more students than it does available units. As a result, housing works on a “first come, first serve wait list.” After you apply you will be placed on the wait list for available units in all our apartment complexes based on your 1) earliest date you will start paying rent and 2) the date you submitted your application. Due to limited availability, Fuller Housing does not guarantee an offer to students, but offers are made on a case by case basis. This includes both new students and current residents looking to transfer units. In order to ensure as many applicants as possible receive an offer, each applicant will be made up to three offers before being moved to the end of the wait list.
Although you may submit an application to Fuller Housing prior to being accepted into Fuller Theological Seminary, in order to be eligible to actually receive an offer from Fuller Housing, you must meet the following requirements:
1. Be accepted into Fuller, and be cleared by the Admissions Office and the Financial Aid Office (although you can submit a housing application prior to being accepted into Fuller Seminary).
2. If you are an international student (you are not a U.S citizen or permanent resident) you must be cleared by ISO and have your visa to receive an offer.
3. Must be a full-time student, who is registered for at least 24 units of master’s-level or 16 units of doctoral-level course work within an academic year. You are allowed to stay for 60 days after your last quarter ends. The 24 units a year begins when you sign your lease. Please note students pursuing MAGL, DMin (aside from International students in the Korean DMin), and certificates are NOT ELIGILBE for housing.
4. You must be starting classes within 1 month from the time your lease begins.
Alternatively, if you are a full time staff member you may be eligible for Fuller Staff Housing in Temple City. Before submitting an application please contact Cynthia Cruz-Tupas - 626.584.5443 | [email protected]
Fuller Housing operates on a wait list system based on 1) your earliest date you will start paying and 2) the date you submitted your application. With limited availability, Fuller Housing does not guarantee an offer to new students. Due to the nature of the lease agreements, we do not know when a tenant will move out until they give a 30 day notice. Because of this, we cannot guarantee that housing will be made available to you by your pay by date. Additionally, we cannot guarantee that a specific unit type, or location will be available at that time. Typically we contact prospective tenants with housing offers between 4-6 weeks before your earliest pay by date. If you have not heard from us 6 weeks before your earliest date please contact us.
Fuller Housing owns or leases 283 units in 8 complexes. Rent is based upon the size of the unit and its amenities. The majority of our units are carpeted, and all of them have a refrigerator and stove/oven unit but are otherwise unfurnished. Additionally, many of our newest units in Chang Commons have dishwashers and washer/dryer units.

The duration of the initial lease is for six months from the effective date of your lease. The Fuller Housing Lease is a Legally Binding Document. If you break the six-month term of the lease agreement, you will be charged rent for the entire six-month period, regardless if you have not moved in or have already moved out of the apartment or even if you no longer attend Fuller Seminary. (Please contact our office for a sample Lease document)
After six months, the lease will be automatically extended month-to-month as long as you pay your rent and remain eligible. To terminate the lease, you will need to give written notification 30 days in advance by completing a "30-Day Notice Form," available at the House office.
Rent is due on the 1st of each month. Renters have a grace period till the 10th of each month. After the 10th a late fee of 6% of the base rent (not to exceed $30) will be added. When the 10th falls on the weekend, rent is due the following Monday. You will be charged a service fee for any bounced checks (NSF or bad checks). You can pay your rent by check, cash, or credit card (one time payment or automatic enrollment).
