Pre Move-In (Contract Cancellation):  For those students who have already contracted and submitted their prepayment for summer housing but have not yet taken residency, you are required to cancel your summer housing within seven days of notification from your academic office.  You will not be charged a cancellation fee and your prepayment will be refunded back to you.  To request cancellation of your summer housing contract, students will need to request a contract cancellation through the Summer Housing Portal on the homepage.

After Move-In (Contract Termination):  Students who have taken occupancy of their summer residence and whose appeal has been denied must move out of their summer allocation.  Students will be charged for any housing charges incurred while living on campus.  Summer housing is not pro-rated daily, but rather students will be charged in full week increments.  Student’s prepayment will go towards their housing charges.  Students will need to request a contract termination within seven days of notification from your academic office. Click on the Summer Housing Portal on the homepage to start your request for a contract cancellation.

Prior to your move-in date and before you take occupancy, if you wish to cancel your housing contract you must notify HDH and the Summer Housing Team by logging into the Summer Housing Portal and clicking on the “Summer Housing Application, Checklist, FAQ, Change and Cancellation Requests” link.

Students will be assessed a cancellation fee in the amount of $150.00. Your original prepayment of

Residents currently living on campus during the 2018-19 academic year will be part of the HDH acceleRATE Summer Program designed to help current UC San Diego student’s progress towards their degree more affordably. The acceleRATE Program will be housed at both the Sixth and Warren apartments. All summer housing residents must be enrolled in order to be eligible for on campus housing. The acceleRATE Summer Program does not require a mandatory dining plan and does not include custodial services.

UC San Diego Internships

If you are participating in an internship where you will receive credit towards your degree, you will qualify for on campus housing under the acceleRATE Summer Program.

UC San Diego students participating in paid internships with the university are not eligible for on campus housing. Please contract Conferences Services at for information on a newly created program for students being paid for summer internships.

Contract Process & Pre-Payment

Your housing application will be processed within 3-5 business days after being received by the Summer Housing Team. After, you will receive an email with the contract link and instructions in order to sign your housing contract. Once your contract has been signed, you will receive another email with the link to submit a prepayment in the amount of $150.00 via E-check. This $150.00 prepayment cannot be paid via your student account on Triton Link, as there will not be a charge on your student account. Instead, you will be directed to a secure third-party site to make the prepayment. Please make sure that you have the following information ready to make your e-check payment: name of the bank account holder, bank account number, and routing number. You will have three days from the time that you receive the payment link to submit your prepayment. Failure to submit your prepayment within the given deadline of three days will result in your application being considered null and void by the Summer Housing Team. If you are having problems with the contracting process, please email the Summer Housing Team at with your name and your PID.

Early Move-In

Students currently housed on campus for the 2018-19 academic year are also eligible to contract for the early move-in session: June 16th through June 28th. Students will be able to select the early move-in option during step 3 of the summer housing application process. Step 3, where the student selects their summer space online, happens after they have completed the contracting & prepayment portion.

Students will be authorized to stay in their current spaces the evenings of Saturday, June 15th and Sunday June 16th. The first day of your contract begins on Sunday, June 16th; however, students will not move to their summer  space until Monday, June 17th between the hours of 12:00PM and 4:00PM. Students who are unable to move out of their current academic space and move in to their summer allocation during the designated day and timeframe given will not be able to contract for the early move-in session. There will be no exceptions.

The deadline to apply for the early move-in session is Friday, May 24th.

**The Housing Office requests that you submit your summer housing application by the priority deadline ONLY so that we are better able to honor your preferences (i.e. session dates, room preference, etc.). If you miss the priority deadline to apply for your chosen session, you may still apply and be housed on campus if there is space, however the Summer Allocations Office may not be able to place you in your preferred room space.

Optional Summer Dining

The acceleRATE Summer Housing Program does not require dining. We are providing an optional dining offering for students who desire one for the duration of their summer housing. Please keep in mind when deciding about whether dining is an option for you, that not all dining facilities will be open throughout the summer and the hours of operation will be fluid. In addition, if you are currently housed on campus and have dining dollars left at the end of spring quarter, you will be able to use those extra dining dollars throughout the summer and even through the upcoming fall quarter.

If you select summer dining, you will be able to dine at Cafe Ventanas, Pines and 64 Degrees only when those facilities are open during the summer.  You will receive three (3) “meal swipes” per day that will allow you to have breakfast, lunch and dinner.  Please be advised that if you do not use all of your swipes per day that you will lose them as they will not roll over to the next day.  When dining at a UC San Diego dining facility you must identify yourself as “summer session” to the cashier when paying for your meal.

Check out our UC San Diego Dining Services llocations for the duration of your summer stay. The summer dining offering cannot be changed, dropped, refunded, or transferred to Triton Cash.

Self-Selection Process

As an acceleRATE summer housing applicant you will be able to self-select your summer space. You cannot pick your summer allocation at either the Sixth or Warren apartments until after you have fully completed the contract process online (i.e. electronically sign the housing contract and submit your prepayment). Students who have completed the contract process must pick their space by the below date according to chosen session or a space will be assigned to you.

Session One (Any session with a move in date of June 29th)— Monday, June 10th

Session Two (Any session with a move in date of August 3rd)— Friday, July 19th

Students housed under the acceleRATE Program are unable to request roommates as residents are selecting their own spaces. Students wishing to room with another student will need to communicate with potential roommates in order to see which space (i.e. building, room, suite, etc.) they have selected. Students may then go in to see if a space is available in that room and/or suite. It is highly suggested that students wishing to room together, apply and complete the contract process around the same time in order to better your chances of picking a summer allocation in the same room and/or suite together and at the same time.

Extended Housing Program (Post Summer Housing / Pre-Academic school year)

Summer students contracted for Summer Housing with a contract end date of Saturday, September 7th, and who will also be housed on campus for the upcoming 2019/20 academic year, will have the option to remain on campus through their fall move-in date of Saturday, September 21st. The Extended Housing Program contract dates are September 8th through September 20th. The application process for Extended Housing will not take place until the middle of August. Eligible students will be contacted in the middle of August and asked to sign their Extended Housing Addendum contract.

Students eligible for the program will remain in their allocated summer space from September 8th until September 12th. Students will move from their summer space on Thursday, September 12th and move to their permanent space for the academic year the same day. Students will not be authorized to participate in the Extended Housing Program if they cannot adhere to the designated move in date of September 12th.  Students cannot move earlier and cannot move later than September 12th. There will be no exceptions.
