Community Rentals Office

The UC Santa Cruz campus, including the Community Rentals Office, will be closed from December 24, 2014 through January 1, 2015. Rental listings will be available to view online during this time; however, no new listings will be input during the closure.

The Community Rentals Office is a resource center for UCSC students, faculty, and staff living off-campus in the Santa Cruz community. An extensive online rental listings database is accessible to all eligible individuals looking for housing. We also serve as an online informational resource center for matters relating to renting off campus. Take a moment to familiarize yourself with our Guiding Principles to learn more about us and our mission.

New to renting or to California? Take the online Renters’ Workshop to learn how to conduct an effective housing search, about different contracts and forms, and what you should know about your rights and responsibilities as a tenant.

Have a vacancy? Landlords can post a rental listing for FREE. Your listing will be automatically e-mailed to a tenant when it matches their search parameters. Eligible UCSC affiliates with rooms to rent can also search for a housemate.

Looking for a rental? UCSC affiliates can search our rentals. Available rentals are updated Monday through Friday.
