CANCELLATION of Summer Housing Contract

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 $150.00 will pay this fee and there will not be any future housing charges due. Cancellation of this contract will be effective upon receipt of the request. Resident agrees to pay the cancellation fee as specified in the UC San Diego Housing Cancellation Policy, which is incorporated herein by reference.

Housing Guarantee/Assurance of Accommodation

Resident shall be assured of accommodations when resident receives a confirmation email from after completing the contract process and submitting the $150.00 prepayment.


Nonresidents (students who are not currently housed on campus), visitors, incoming freshmen, and incoming transfer students enrolled at the university in the summer will be housed in the Traditional Summer Housing Program. All Traditional summer housing residents must be 17 years of age at the time that they take residency in the summer allocation in addition to being enrolled in courses in order to be eligible for on campus housing. The Traditional Summer Program includes dining in addition to custodial services which includes the cleaning of common areas only (laundry facilities, student activity center, kitchen (apartments only), bathroom and student lounge). Residents are responsible for the cleaning of their private sleeping areas and removal of their trash.

ELI Program (English Language Institute)

International students who are enrolled in an English Language Program course or a professional certificate program through UC Extension should arrange for their Housing through the Extension website.

If you will be affiliated with the university throughout the summer (i.e. visiting professor, paid internships, UC San Diego alumni) but not enrolled in courses, please contact Hospitality & Conference Services for assistance to secure Summer Housing.

Contract Process & Pre-Payment

Your housing application will be processed within 3-5 business days upon being received by the Summer Housing Team. After, you will receive an email with the contract link 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.
