Moving to LA

Stella Adler does not provide dormitory facilities or housing services but is happy to help incoming students meet each other (and point you in the right direction), as moving to a new city or country can be daunting.

Estimated Costs

Depending on your lifestyle there are many places to live in walking distance from the Academy.

Studio Apartments: $850-$1000 per month

One Bedroom: $1100-$1400

Two Bedroom: $1400+

Keep in mind, there may be additional expenses for utilities (gas, electric, water) and WIFI. This can add an additional $50-$100 to your monthly total.

Cell Phone:
Pay as you go: $40-$50 per month
Contract: $45-$100 per month

Tips:
When searching areas the key word would be ‘Hollywood & Highland.’

The further WEST you go the nicer the area. But in general, we do not recommend living further than West Hollywood, due to travel time and cost of parking (there is good public transport between West Hollywood and Hollywood).

Temporary Housing Solutions: 

www.highlandgardenshotel.com – This hotel is right up the street from us. They give short term and long term rates. Remember to mention you are at Stella Adler (ask to speak to a manager as they have given really good deals to students in the past).

www.chateaudesoleil.com – Located in North Hollywood, this long term/short term hostel. Many of our students have stayed here and really like it. It is located in North Hollywood and is 2 stops away on the red line (train).
