Lincoln Housing


Lincoln University offers student-housing options. Currently, the university provides affordable shared apartments. The most popular student housing is in the city of Alameda. Alameda is a safe community located on an island south of downtown Oakland. The rent for a shared apartment ranges from $500 to $600 monthly per person. Shared apartments are furnished and include utilities, high-speed internet, and renter’s insurance. The apartment complex offers controlled access, a pool, fitness center, laundry facilities, and is located near a bus stop with a short commuting distance to Lincoln University.

Many students find non-university apartments, share with other students, or live with relatives or friends. The rent for shared housing ranges from about $400 to $700 per person, and a single studio apartment starts around $900 per month. The Student Services Office posts notices about current rental options and refers students to various sources of temporary housing until students acquire their own accommodations. Some students choose to utilize housing websites and independent rental agencies.
