College Vista is an award-winning 44-unit rental housing development for faculty and staff of the College of San Mateo which offers a first-class living environment with rents at half the market average. College Vista is a Craftsman-inspired, two- and three-story complex with stunning views of the bay and south San Mateo County that was built on a two-acre unused college parking lot. Units at College Vista are tastefully appointed, including wood entry floors, large windows and sliding glass doors, patios and decks and individual washers/dryers. Most units have a private garage. College Vista opened in December 2005 and has been fully occupied since its opening.
