More information regarding our Fall 2017 Housing Interest List will be posted in early July.
Please note: Offers will begin when we have available space. There is no guarantee of housing or receiving an offer if you put yourself on the Interest List.
Please direct questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Helpful sites for other off campus housing options:
In the event a vacancy arises, students will be contacted the moment we are able to offer you a space. Please note: submitting a Housing Interest List application does not guarantee you a space on campus. If you are not offered a space for the quarter in which you applied, you will need to reapply the following quarter. Your Housing Interest List application does not roll over into the next quarter.
If you wish to cancel your Housing contract during the summer months before you take occupancy, the answer is YES. Please read the Cancellation Policy regarding cancellation fees. Refer to the section that pertains to you (Returning Student or Incoming Student).
If you wish to terminate your Housing contract after move in or during the academic year, the process begins with your Residential Life Office. Please note: you will be responsible for your housing and dining charges until you are approved for contract release and complete the entire move-out process (which includes turning in of keys and appropriate forms). If you are denied release, you will be instructed on how to appeal. If you are granted a housing contract release because you are withdrawing from the University please communicate with both your College Academic Advising Office and your Residential Life Office.
Your Housing contract begins Saturday, September 23, 2017; all information pertaining to move-in will be included in the welcome letter that is scheduled to be emailed to students in early August.
The UC San Diego Residential Life Offices will send out Welcome Letters early August. Your Welcome Letter will provide you with important information about move-in week, things to plan on and where you can check your room assignment and roommate information. Contact your Residential Life Office with questions.
Bring your own towels, pillow, bedding to fit an extra-long twin bed (36" x 80"), a non-halogen desk lamp, fan, computer, power surge protector, and personal first aid kit.
Once you receive your room assignment in August, it’s a GREAT idea to check with roommates and figure out who will bring larger items to share. Some residents like to purchase items together once they move in. Examples include:
Yes, one small refrigerator is allowed in each room. It must be smaller than five cubic feet and have a safe UL-approved electrical system. Microwaves may also be brought. Check with roommates to make sure you don’t duplicate items.
Remember, at the end of the year you are responsible for removing all of the items you "move-in"! Donation bins, recycling, and trash dumpsters will be available, but we do not offer storage on campus. Keep this in mind when you're bringing items to campus in the fall!
All first-year incoming freshmen and incoming transfer students admitted to UC San Diego in Fall 2017 are eligible for guaranteed Housing space for two years (six consecutive academic year quarters, beginning with Fall 2017 and excluding summers). First-year incoming freshmen are defined as new students entering UC San Diego in the fall, directly from high school. Incoming transfer students are defined as new student entering UC San Diego in the fall.
To keep your housing guarantee, you must continuously reside on campus for the entire academic year (Fall, Winter, and Spring Quarter, excluding summer) and meet all housing deadlines. 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, Chancellor’s Entering Freshmen Scholars, and Chancellor’s Associate 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.
Very few of our residents subscribe to a land line. If you would like to make arrangements for regular telephone service, please contact your Residential Life Office for instructions. If you would like a phone and answering machine, be sure to bring them with you.
Computer labs are available throughout campus. Printing is also available. To find the computer lab closest to you, UC San Diego has an online Computer Lab Lookup tool available.
Washers and dryers are conveniently located in or near each residential Housing facility. Check with your specific college of residence for locations or visit our laundry page for detailed information.
All on-campus Housing facilities include some level of cleaning service each week. Cleaning is restricted to public areas including living rooms, dining rooms, bathrooms, and kitchens. Residents are responsible for the cleaning of their private sleeping areas and taking out their trash. Vacuums are available at each Residential Life Office, but residents may consider bringing their own mini-vacuum.
Although not mandatory, it is highly recommended that you carry renters insurance to protect your personal property (such as computers and other valuables). Here is a link that is specifically designed for UC San Diego renters: https://www.gradguard.com/school-search
Students are not allowed to stay in the residence halls during Winter Break. However, apartment residents may stay on campus during this time. All facilities will be open and available for students to stay in during Spring Break.

Our Housing and Dining plan is a comprehensive room and board program. The Dining Plan cannot be changed, dropped, refunded, or transferred to Triton Cash.

Please note: The earliest that additional Dining Dollars can be purchased is the beginning of Winter Quarter (January).

Residential Housing fees are billed in the UC San Diego Statement, http://tritonlink.ucsd.edu. Housing charges can be found in the same location that UC Tuition and Education Fees are billed along with any current or delinquent University Charges. Housing also has a Housing Cost & Payment Schedule which serves as a reminder of future Housing Charge due dates.
All statements will be emailed to your UC San Diego email account. If you wish to have your bills emailed to an additional address, visit TritonLink, select "Billing and Payment", then "Authorize a Parent/Payer".
Please visit Ways to Pay Your Bill to review all forms of payment that are accepted by the University. At this time, credit cards are not accepted.
All installments must be paid by the due date indicated on the e-statement and Housing Cost and Payment Schedule. Fees and/or charges not paid by this date are considered delinquent and are subject to a $20 late charge.
Changes to your housing installment payment plan can be made in mid-August. To make any changes, log into the Housing Portal and submit a “Housing Installment Payment Plan Change.” You can elect to PAY IN FULL, QUARTERLY, or MONTHLY installments. Students who elect to pay quarterly or monthly are assessed a one-time $30 housing administrative fee.
Yes. The university applies your financial aid first to tuition fees and past due amounts, second to Housing charges, and third to any other outstanding charges that may be due. If your University fees exceed the amount of financial aid, any outstanding charges are the student’s financial responsibility.
Yes, but only after you receive a promissory note from your lender. Remember to check the EFT box on your Financial Aid application. Contact the Financial Aid Office at 858-534-4480 if you have any questions about your loan application.
