Off-Campus Short Term/Temporary/Emergency

The Redwood Lily House is an eco-lodge/hostel where students can stay for 2-3 nights at an affordable rate. This option is frequently less expensive than hotels and motels, and can be a great resource for students who need short term housing. The Redwood Lily operates on a first-come/first-served basis as space is limited.

Arcata House Partnership offers two separate shelter programs: an Adult Shelter and a Family Shelter. The Adult Shelter serves adults over 18 in communal/dorm housing, and the Family Shelter serves any family with children in communal housing facilities in Arcata.
