I went to undergrad at Pupperdine and let me tell you it is EXPENSIVE. If you would like to live in Malibu your apartment options are limited. There are the Bella Mar apartments starting at roughly 2500 for a one bedroom and 3600 for a 2 bedroom. There is another apartment complex in Malibu but im not sure of the name...its nickname is the stincky's because it f ing wreaks there. But if you decide that living in Malibu is too expensive, which i did the last 2 years of undergrad, than your best option is to move to Calabasas, a 15 minute drive through the canyon. I went through a real estate agent and found a very nice condo, 2000 square feet 2 car garage, for "only" 1800 including water and trash. But be prepared to spend a lot of money on anything you do/buy. Good luck and by the way get ready for an extremely conservative education!!!
