Central Coast Study Abroad | StudentRoomStay Concierge

Spanning the coastline between Los Angeles and San Francisco, the Central Coast is one of the prettiest regions in California. With its beaches, mountains, vineyards, farmlands and cities, it offers all the best of California in one place. Residents embrace the area’s scenic beauty and year-round sunshine with active, outdoorsy lifestyles. From culture and community to exploring the region’s natural scenery, students who study on the Central Coast will have so much to experience.

Why Study in The Central Coast?

With its excellent educational opportunities, miles of hiking trails and fascinating history, studying abroad on California’s Central Coast is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
