Housing for Incoming Undergraduates

Housing Contract

Housing • Dining • Hospitality (HDH), in collaboration with UC San Diego and the individual colleges and residential life programs, stand behind promoting and strengthening the Residential College System and the community as a whole.

This fall, first-year incoming freshman students, who were able to meet the May 1st Admissions and Housing deadlines, will be offered our two-year Housing guarantee (six consecutive academic year quarters, beginning with Fall 2016 and excluding summers).

To secure this Housing guarantee, all Housing Contract deadlines must subsequently be met.

To maintain your housing guarantee, you must continuously reside on campus for the entire academic year (Fall, Winter, and Spring Quarter, excluding summer). Moving off campus for any length of time other than quarter breaks, summer, or a UC San Diego-sponsored exchange program voids your Housing guarantee.

Please note: Regents Scholars, Jacobs School of Engineering Scholars and Chancellor’s Entering Freshmen Scholars who meet all first-year incoming freshmen student deadlines are guaranteed twelve consecutive academic year quarters in campus Housing as long as they continue to meet scholarship and Housing guarantee criteria. Moving off campus for any length of time other than quarter breaks, summer, or a UC San Diego-sponsored exchange program voids your Housing guarantee.

We believe that living on campus greatly enhances the college experience. When you choose to live at UC San Diego, you grow and benefit from staff trained to create an environment that supports living and learning. It’s the best way to get involved in campus life and build strong friendships.

We truly believe that our high caliber program will play a vital role in your happiness and success at UC San Diego, because your overall college experience is as important to us as it is to you.
