International Students


Las Positas College, like most community colleges, does not offer on-campus housing; however, LPC has contracted with several providers to assist you including homestays and dormitories.


One of the best ways to improve your English and learn about American customs is to stay with an American family while studying here in the US. LPC has contracted with International Student Placements, ISP to assist students in finding safe and affordable housing in a quality, pre-screened, host home.  For further information, please contact International Student Placements.
