Your Housing Contract must be electronically signed by midnight on Thursday, February 15, 2018. Your $450 prepayment must also be received by midnight on Thursday, February 15, 2018. You may submit your $450 prepayment via E-Check or payment coupon with paper check.

Compare one of your checks to the examples below. Find the one that most closely resembles your check and identify your ROUTING NUMBER and ACCOUNT NUMBER.

NOTE: Do NOT include the CHECK NUMBER as part of the ACCOUNT NUMBER.

Not sure? Contact your bank or use your bank statement to verify your ACCOUNT NUMBER.

Please note: The Room Selection housing prepayment E-Check process is different and completely separate from the TritonLink billing system (where you currently pay your monthly university billing statement). You will not be able to use any of your currently saved TritonLink E-Check payment profiles to submit your housing prepayment. Please review the Room Selection E-Check instructions carefully to ensure that you have everything you’ll need to complete this step.

By using E-Check, you can electronically submit your $450 prepayment. Make sure you have your bank’s routing number and your checking account number. When you have completed making your E-Check payment, you will receive a separate email from the vendor with a confirmation number. Please make sure to keep this number. Your funds will be debited from your checking account within 2-5 business days if the process is successful.

If your E-Check payment is unable to be processed, you will receive an email from the vendor indicating that you will need to correct the error and remake your payment. The Housing Administrative Services Office may also contact you if there are issues with your E-Check payment.

If you choose the payment coupon option, your $450 paper check and payment coupon must be delivered in a sealed envelope to the Housing Administrative Services Office located on the 2nd floor of the HDH Administration Building (located near the Revelle Residence Halls) or at the night drop deposit box at the Cashier’s Office no later than midnight on Thursday, February 15, 2018. All paper checks must be made payable to “UC Regents.” Please write your PID number on the front of the check. Cash is not accepted. DO NOT MAIL YOUR $450 PREPAYMENT AND PAYMENT COUPON!

By signing the Housing Contract electronically, you are agreeing to abide by the terms and conditions set forth in the Housing Contract which are legally binding for the entire 2018-2019 Academic Year.

Your on-campus housing space for the 2018-2019 academic year will be secured when you have successfully completed the entire Room Selection Sign-Up process (contract signature, $450 prepayment) and successfully selected an on-campus housing space. Please note that some students may not be able to select space based on availability. If that is the case, the student will be contacted regarding automatic cancellation and receiving a full refund or being offered a delayed assignment.

We highly recommend that you also print out a copy of the Housing Contract (available during the Room Selection Application process). Your existing 2017-2018 housing account must be current by the Room Selection Sign-Up date (April 10th or 12th, 2018 at midnight). If your account is not current, your housing space will be cancelled and offered to another student.
