Undergraduate Student Couples
UC San Diego, Associated Residential Community Housing (ARCH) offers housing to eligible undergraduate students residing with a partner or spouse in the Coast Apartments, Mesa Residential, One Miramar Street, and Rita Atkinson Residences. All UC San Diego communities are designated smoke free facilities.
Partners and spouses of students are eligible upon submitting documentation in compliance with the University of California’s Definitions and Required Documents for family member eligibility. Provide a valid marriage certificate, registered domestic partnership or schedule an appointment with the Residential Services Office to document couple status.
If a student’s partner or spouse plans to reside away from the Coast Apartments, Mesa Residential, One Miramar Street, and Rita Atkinson Residences for more than one quarter, then the student must find an eligible roommate during the partner's/spouse’s absence. It is intended that these communities be your primary residence.
Students who are currently enrolled, have formally accepted the UC San Diego Offer of Admission, or have submitted their intent to matriculate may apply. Students are not eligible for housing if they are working toward their second Bachelor’s degree or in the Extension or Limited Status programs. Residents must maintain full-time status, enrolled in at least twelve units each academic quarter, in courses leading to a degree granted by UC San Diego.
Falsification of any information regarding partner and dependent eligibility will result in termination of housing. Couples agree to notify the Housing Office of any change in the status of the partnership within (30) thirty days of change (includes death, marriage, and divorce) or in advance if the couple decides to pursue separate living arrangements.
