Where to Live Off-Campus

Our 252-acre campus extends across three different cities – Montclair, Clifton and Little Falls. When you are looking for housing first consider how you will get to campus.  If you will be relying on public transport, consider housing that is close to the Montclair-Boonton train line as this service stops on campus.  Listing of buses that service campus.

The cities and zip codes you should use to search for housing are:

  • Montclair (07043 and 07042)

Montclair can be an expensive location to rent housing so we suggest you also look in the following areas:

  • Bloomfield, NJ (07003, 07017, 07028)
  • Little Falls (07424)
  • Clifton (07011, 07012, 07013, 07014, 07015, 07026, 07043, 07503)
  • Verona (07009, 07044)
  • West Orange (07044, 07052)
  • Glen Ridge (07028)

If you are looking for housing off campus check Montclair State University’s Off-Campus Housing Service.

You might also consider the opportunity of a homestay where you live with a local family.
