Today's campus has expanded to include 27 buildings located on 38+ acres, with state-of-the-art technology enabled classrooms and labs designed to prepare students for in-demand careers.
Located at the intersection of 15h Avenue and Washington Way, the campus is close to local neighborhoods, downtown shops, and restaurants. Lake Sacajawea Park features walking paths, biking trails, picnic areas and special event venues.
As an alternative to living with a host family many LCC international students choose to live independently, or with roommates, in an apartment or house. There are several units available within walking distance of the campus and there is bus service available for those that choose to live a little further away. All LCC students are provided a free bus pass.
The Lower Columbia College International Programs staff will assist with finding and setting up the rental of an apartment or house but it is the responsibility of the student(s) and/or parents to pay the monthly rent.
The average one bedroom apartment/house in the Longview/Kelso area rents for about $600-$700 a month. Depending on the lease, students may also be responsible for paying utilities, cable, and Internet separately. Renters must be 18 years of age or older. If you are a first time renter you may be required to have your parents co-sign the lease.
