About Lido Mirada Apartments

Lido Mirada contains two-bedroom apartments, designed to house 4 students each. There is one laundry room on the ground floor. Lido is co-ed, with male and female students living in separate apartments. While there is no lobby or lounge per se, there is an external patio and swimming pool that provides social space. All doors open to a central courtyard area making community easy and natural.

Lido Mirada Apartments' doors are secured by a key access system, so only residents can access the building. Each individual room is key-locked for student security. Security cameras in outside and common areas are monitored 24 hours per day, and Campus Safety patrols campus regularly to ensure student security at all times.
