As at all UC campuses, finding housing may be a challenge. Students who wish to reside on campus should submit their application as soon as possible. Likewise, students who wish to live off campus should start looking at available rentals as soon as possible.

On-campus Graduate Student Housing is available for 82 graduate students. Visit the Grad Housing website, or email gradhsg@ucsc.edu.

Students with families may apply to live in Family Student Housing, a complex of two-bedroom unfurnished apartments. Refer to the Family Student Housing website, or email fsh@ucsc.edu.

To assist students in locating living accommodations in the surrounding communities, the Community Rentals Office maintains a list of available rentals.
