In response to regional housing costs that are among the highest in the country, the San Mateo County Community College District has undertaken initiatives to assist faculty and staff with high housing expenses. The District currently owns and operates 134 housing units at the College of San Mateo, Cañada College and Skyline College campuses, which are available to faculty and staff (who meet the definition of first-time homebuyers). Employees are eligible to live in these units for up to seven years and pay rent that is well below market rate. Residents of the employee housing program are strongly encouraged to save the money from their reduced rent to apply toward a down payment to buy housing in the area.
