Housing

Syracuse University has selected The Oakwood in Los Angeles as their official SU housing option for Los Angeles Semester students. www.oakwood.com/sula. Students opting to secure alternative housing must live within a reasonable commuting distance to/from SULA in Sherman Oaks.

Oakwood Housing
Students will stay in fully furnished Quad units at The Oakwood (3600 Barham Blvd, Los Angeles, CA.). The Oakwood is conveniently located between Warner Bros Studios and Universal Studios, and is less than two miles away from Walt Disney Studios.  Oakwood specializes in temporary furnished apartments and student housing.  Each quad unit houses four students – complete with two bedrooms, with two twin beds in each, 2 bathrooms, living area and full kitchen. The cost for housing for the semester (based on a typical 4 students to an apartment) is $5460*and includes: parking, utilities, local phone, cable TV and high-speed internet. The Oakwood is a gated community with a 24-hour security guard at the entrance to protect the privacy of the residents inside.

Oakwood Housing
The apartment complex also offers special amenities such as two clubhouses, two swimming pools, two fitness centers, satellite dishes, tennis courts, a basketball court, beach style volleyball, conference rooms, hair salon, convenience store, and a dry cleaner.Students may choose to find their own housing. This method is acknowledged but not encouraged.  We have chosen The Oakwood carefully for safety reasons (it is a well respected, private, gated community with an RA on site) and only a small drive to SULA Headquarters where evening classes are held.  Each apartment is fully furnished (towels, linens, dishes, silverware, glasses, pots/pans, etc).Students will be responsible for their own groceries and meals. We have recommended that students plan to budget $2,500 to $3,000 for meal expenses for the semester.  This is not an amount that is charged to students and actual charges will vary per student.
