Interstate 10, which stretches from California to Florida, is ten minutes from the College of the Desert, and California 111 is less than a minute away. Most students that want to live local (and aren’t commuting from home further away) stay in Palm Desert, where the college is located. However, Cathedral City, Indio, and Palm Springs are viable renting options as they are within 15 miles of campus. The College of the Desert is a fifteen minute drive from Coachella in Indio, which is a famous arts and music festival. Right now, it’s arguably the most popular festival in the country. It’s common for COD students to buy tickets, get together with friends, and make the drive out to the festival grounds every year. Best of all, they don’t even have to camp out or find a nearby hotel--they can just go back and forth between Coachella and their apartment rental each day of the weekend.
