Nothing beats On Campus Living — you’re next door to everything & everyone!

Roll out of bed. Walk to class. Lunch with friends. Quick nap. Afternoon lecture. Sunset surfing at the beach. Study session with suitemates. Movie night in the lounge.

This is everyday life when you call UC San Diego home. Students who live on campus generally report feeling more fulfilled by their college experience. Explore our website to learn more about living with us at UC San Diego!

Housing Guarantee

Incoming freshmen and incoming transfers who meet all admissions and housing application deadlines will receive a Housing Contract offer. These students who complete their contracts by July 6 will secure a 2 year Housing Guarantee (six consecutive academic year quarters, beginning with Fall 2018, excluding summers). Moving off campus for any length of time other than quarter breaks, summer, or a UC San Diego sponsored exchange program voids the Housing Guarantee.

Incoming freshmen and transfer room assignments will be determined by college of registration (freshmen only), roommate requests, room preferences, answers from the Personal History Form, available space, and other factors. 

Room preferences and roommate requests will be collected in mid-July.

90% of Freshmen live in tripled rooms.

60% of Transfers live in tripled rooms.
