Housing Referrals

Irvine Valley College Office of Student Life does NOT provide housing postings online or on any exterior/interior buildings, and includes any regular or dedicated bulletin boards on the IVC campus. Community members are welcome to utilize the Public Posting Panel/Boards located along the side wall of B100 building/across from the B300 building for their own housing/room for rent type listings. No approval necessary.

NOTE: The Public Posting Panel Boards are cleared at the end of every month. No staples or tacks!!! Push pins work best!
