Eligibility for Housing

All students enrolled at the Irell & Manella Graduate School of Biological Sciences of City of Hope are eligible for on-campus housing. Male and female graduate students can be assigned to the same house. Unfortunately, families with children cannot be accommodated.


Students will be asked to fill out an ‘Application for Occupancy’ Agreement, which is available on our website or in the Office of Graduate Education.

The lease term begins on the Move-in Date and ends on the Move-out Date, as designated by the lease agreement. These dates will be established and set forth by Corporate Real Estate and the Graduate School Oversight Committee.

Bedroom Furnishings

Bedrooms are furnished with a long twin bed, mattress, protective mattress cover, desk, desk chair, nightstand and dresser. Furniture may not be removed from bedrooms.  Residents are permitted to rearrange furniture to suit their preferences.  However, furniture should not obstruct smoke detectors, vents, or exits. Furniture must be returned to their original locations upon move out. Residents are not allowed to remove window coverings and screens or alter windows with window film or tinting of any kind. Residents may not paint the rooms.

Common Area Furnishings

All units include a living room, dining area and kitchen. Living rooms include a couch, chair, coffee table, floor lamp, and flat screen television. Dining rooms contain a table and four chairs. All units contain a washer/dryer, refrigerator, and stove. Residents may not place or affix any satellite dish, antenna or other device outside their windows, on the roof or in any other location of any City of Hope property.
Due to limited storage space, you may not bring your own beds or large furniture to substitute for City of Hope furniture.
