The City Council approved a commercial fee deferral for the Campus Oaks Apartment Complex allowing the project to begin which will provide much needed rental housing choices in Roseville.  

The Campus Oaks Apartment Complex is located just south of Blue Oaks Boulevard and consists of 396 rental units.  The current rental vacancy rate in Roseville is less than three percent compared to a typical rental vacancy rate of between five to eight percent.
