How many college students are there in Los Angeles (ballpark)?
I'm trying to get a rough estimate of the total number of college students there are in the greater Los Angeles area. Some schools I would include on my list are UCLA, USC, CSUN, Pierce, CSULB, SMC...

Well, it depends on if you're only counting big name private schools, UCs, Cal States, and Community Colleges, or if you're including small, unaccredited institutions. If you include all, there are about 300,000 "colleges and universities" near LA, many of which have 2 or 3 students at a time (I was a curriculum developer for one that only granted Master's degrees in Public Administration, with an average of 5 students at a time). There's the Long Beach Bible College or the Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture colleges and things like that, but I will not count them.
I'm going to include some of the "big" schools in LA County:
Cal State LA
Cal State Long Beach
Cal State Dominguez Hills
Cal State Northridge
Cal Poly Pomona
El Camino College
Mt. San Antonio College
Mt. Saint Mary's College
Santa Monica College
Long Beach City College
LA Southwest College (I teach here)
West LA College
Loyola Marymount University
LA Harbor College
Pasadena City College
I'll just stop there and low ball. Most of these schools have student populations between about 10,000 and 40,000, so let's just average it to 20,000 x 20 = 400,000. Its probably closer to 600,000 though. (According to the LA Community College District, there are 135,000 students in the Community Colleges alone, which doesn't include the bigger ones like Mt. SAC, Long Beach, and El Camino)
So, realizing I didn't even include some popular colleges like Cal Design College, Otis, Pepperdine, National, Phoenix, and Antioch I think the actual number of people in some kind of institution that can call itself a college in LA is somewhere hovering around 1 million people.

college scholars in many situations proceed to exist campus, or basically off campus. Is there a close-by this is greater inexpensive? sure, they are reported as dormitories. ON CAMPUS. And sure, you ought to use economic help for dorm costs. you won't have the skill to apply economic help for lease of off campus housing. touch the economic help workplace of your college, and that they could supply you information.
