The International Collegiate Residence of San Mateo-Waterfront Apartments (ICR) is dedicated to serving the housing need of international students attending the three San Mateo Colleges (Cañada College in Redwood City, College of San Mateo in San Mateo and Skyline College in San Bruno). ICR is conveniently located next to shopping centers and restaurants in a safe, upscale neighborhood in San Mateo, California.
The residence is safe, clean, well maintained and is only 20 minutes from the city of San Francisco and Silicon Valley of San Jose. ICR understands the needs of international students and strives to provide the most supportive environment allowing students to devote their energy to their studies and life in America!
The location of our apartments gives you a central point of access to everything up and down the coast of the San Francisco Bay. It locates minutes from the airport and experiences all the sights of the Bay Area! It is so easy to get to as well, sitting just a few exits away from the College of San Mateo, Canada College and Skyline College and only steps away from the famous Highway 101. The BUS stops are just next to our main gate, for example, the BUS 250 directly goes to College of San Mateo. Also conveniently close by are the San Mateo downtown, Target, Costco, Oracle headquarters and the Mills Health Center. It is just the best.
If you’re looking for things to do, there’s no shortage of them near the ICR. The best neighbor, Marina Plaza, next to our location will offer you plenty choices of amazing restaurants. It is only 20 minutes from the most famous Stanford University or San Francisco city. You’ll have just a short journey to the Giants at AT&T Park.
Closer in, you can find the relaxing Japanese Tea Garden, Horseshoe Cove and the Coyote Point Museum, which is popular for its science exhibits.
