Rancho Cucamonga is well known for its planned living communities, and there are many wonderful apartments in the area. Please note each apartment community will have different rental requirements. All will require a bank statement with significant funds and additional steps for international student. Also, neighborhood homeowners with extra bedrooms frequently rent out rooms to our students.
