San Diego isn’t just a place to live…it’s a lifestyle all its own.

Wake up in your sunlit and stylish bedroom

It’s easy to rise and shine when your room is flooded with San Diego’s famous sunshine. There’s nothing like a great window view to start your day. Whether you choose a studio or share an apartment with up to 4 friends, your bedroom can be your own personal sanctuary.

Choose your morning boost

Whatever you need to get your body going, Iconic delivers. You can start your day with coffee and breakfast in your own kitchen, take a dip in a pool, get in some quick miles on a treadmill or an elliptical, or head down to the hang-out lounge for some casual conversation with your classmates. Fresh coffee is served from all day when the leasing office is open, so a caffeine boost is ready when you need one. You can even bring your coffee outside to one of our colorful outdoor seating areas to awaken your senses with everything that says “morning” in beautiful San Diego. It’s all here…just the way you want it. Mornings at Iconic On Alvarado before heading to campus set you up for success as a student all day long.

Dinner and downtime

With a day of classes behind you, it’s time to relax and refuel. Your kitchen is equipped with everything you need to prepare a dinner with friends or a cozy meal for yourself. If eating out sounds good, then fast food, local cafes, fine restaurants, and well-known chains are on-campus or nearby. After dinner, you can relax and hang out with friends in the brand new Game Room and play some pool. Leisure time is time for you.

This place gave me such an awesome experience honestly. Anytime I needed something it was easy to let the office know about it and get it taken care of. Grounds were cool and gave a very chill vibe. Definitely recommend to anyone looking!
