Living in North Hills, CA

The North Hills/Mission Hills area has one of the richest histories of Los Angeles County, with missionaries arriving as early as the 18th century. In 1916 the orchard and farm land that is now occupied by North Hills was the site of the San Fernando Valley’s first oil well, and a few buildings in the area still hearken back to a time when the area had something of a Wild West feel. Known as Sepulveda until the early 1990s, the neighborhood changed its name as part of an overhaul that saw new modern touches and amenities. North Hills is further divided into the North Hills East and North Hills West areas.

Today, the neighborhood, which is home to around 59,000 people according to L.A. Department of City Planning estimates, is a quiet place, marked by its residential character and relaxed pace of living. Residents of North Hills apartments enjoy calm streets and easy access to Interstate 405 and all the conveniences of the San Fernando Valley.

North Hills Work and Study

California State University, Northridge lies just a few blocks west of North Hills, catering to nearly 36,000 students with a wide range of degree programs and extracurricular activities. The university is one of the largest single-campus institutions in the country, and, with its busy surroundings, many CSUN students opt for the more affordable housing options of North Hills.
