Why Iconic on Alvarado

Iconic on Alvarado offers a comfortable, convenient, secure living and learning environment for our residents. The community is located just a few minutes from the San Diego State University campus with a trolley station within walking distance. We believe that when students are close to class, they go to class, and our convenient location is prime for your student’s academic success.

We offer a variety of housing options, from a private studio and two-bedroom furnished apartments to four-bedroom, four-bathroom homes for your student and his or her roommates. We also offer a roommate matching program that pairs future residents with others that have similar social or academic interests to enhance their college experience.
