Housing and Dormitory

Bethesda University has no on-campus housing or dormitory facilities. Most of our students rent apartments near the school. The International Student Program assists students with housing information upon their arrival.


Apartments are available in Anaheim and areas around Bethesda University. Students are encouraged to contact the owners or managers of apartments directly for rental arrangements. Rent ranges from approximately $900 to $1300 per month. Bethesda University will assist but is not responsible to find housing for students.

Student Club/Organizations

BU encourages the formation of student clubs that will be beneficial to the students academically and emotionally. Friendship and fellowship among Christians can be soothing to the soul, promote a spirit of cooperation, and a desire to continue the work of our Lord. We, therefore, encourage the clubs that abide by our Christian values and ethics. Examples of clubs are:  Bible Study Club, Visual Design Club, Prayer Club, Praise Club, etc.

Following the orientation, the new students, the student council, the faculty, and the administration enjoy a dinner offered by BU.
