Housing for Incoming Undergraduates

Parent Portal


April 2018—

Dear Parents/Guardians of current residents,

As we approach the home stretch of the UC San Diego 2017–18 academic year, we felt it was important to acknowledge the hard work the students have put forth all year and the tremendous support that the parents and families have provided. We also felt it was important to provide you with helpful resources for summer and next school year.

Move Out

Please note that the move out date is Saturday, June 16, 2018 at 6pm. We highly encourage that you start discussions and preparations for move out with your student to ensure a smooth move out process. More move out information will be emailed to your student soon.

Summer Session

The summer Housing application is now available. To fill out an application or for more information regarding summer Housing, please go to the Summer Housing page.


Dear Parents/Guardians of incoming students,

Congratulations to your student! Please check out the important housing info for incoming students below.

The Offer of Admission deadline is May 1 and the Housing application is due May 8. Applying for Housing is free and takes only a few minutes.

Only students who have accepted their Offer of Admission can apply for Housing in the Triton Checklist. Link to Triton Checklist should be sent to you within 24-48 hours after you accept your Offer of Admission.

Incoming freshmen and incoming transfers who meet all admissions and Housing application deadlines will receive a Housing Contract offer by June 11. The students who complete their contract and the $450 prepayment by June 28, 2018 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 room assignments will be determined by college of registration, gender, and other factors. Students who complete the housing contract will request room preference and roommates later in the summer.

Incoming Transfers will be assigned based on the answers of the Personal History Form, room preferences, and roommate requests. Room preferences and roommate requests will be collected in mid-July.

While we do encourage you to do this process sooner than later, there is no priority given to those who complete the application or contract process early. As long as the process is completed by the deadline date, your student is guaranteed a space on campus.

If you have an incoming Freshman or incoming Transfer student for Fall 2018-19, please visit our Important Deadlines site for more information regarding the Housing process.
