Basic Police Academy: Housing

The College of the Redwoods Police Academy is not a live-in program. Students must provide their own food and lodging. We do however, provide a list of affordable housing in order to assist students in finding a suitable place to live.  This list is merely provided as a convenience to students and is not to be construed as approval or certification by the College of any particular property listed therein. 

There are dorms on the CR campus.  You can access the Housing and Residential Life website or call their office at 707-476-4294 

Parking on campus

The parking of any motor vehicle on campus shall be by proper acquisition and display of a valid and current parking permit.

You may obtain information concerning the rules, regulations, and fees relating to the parking program, and the issuance of parking permits from the campus Security Office.
