Housing for Incoming Undergraduates

Living Learning Communities

UC San Diego is committed to creating more spaces where our diverse population of undergraduate students can connect with each other, with the university and with others within the community. Our Living-Learning Communities (LLCs) have been developed to strengthen learning by helping residents to connect academically and socially. The LLCs are each characterized by housing within the same residence location, shared co-curricular experiences, access to resources, and engaging in activities that reinforce common affinities such as aspects of culture.

Incoming students (freshmen and transfer) will have an opportunity to apply for an optional Living Learning Community during the housing contract phase.  


Housed at Muir College

The LGBTQIA+ Program is housed in the Tuolumne Apartments in the Muir residential complex and may also be housed in some Residence Hall spaces at Muir in Tenaya or Tioga.  The LGBTQOA+ Program is open to any student from any College who is eligible for undergraduate housing. This living and learning opportunity is going into its 3rd year and is a dynamic program in which residents participate in a variety of activities and programs. Residents also have the opportunity to be part of an advisory council that provides direction and feedback about the activities and programs that are offered to members of the LLC. Collectively, this is a community and a cohesive program that provides a comfortable living environment for its participates. Members of the LLC are given the opportunity to explore themselves and a variety of LGBT topics.

  • Cultivating personal development and self-awareness
  • Fostering meaningful interpersonal connections and lifelong relationships

Transfer Success Scholars Housing

Transitioning to UC San Diego is exciting and prestigious. It can also make incoming transfer students nervous about taking classes, making friends, and becoming part of the campus. The Transfer Success Housing brings together incoming transfer students to live in community, to share in new experiences, and to build pathways of success.
