Non-college apartments

There are many apartment complexes located within walking distance from the College or close by on the Whatcom Transit Authority bus line. The average rental costs for apartments near WCC can range in price from $500 per month for a studio apartment, to $1000 for a three-bedroom apartment. Generally, these apartments are not furnished and students are required to buy all household necessities (bed, kitchen/cooking items, table and chairs, etc.). Please review Bellingham rental information for specifics on any of these housing options.
