Attention residents and prospective residents of Graduate Student Housing:
A major maintenance project to upgrade the fire alarm system and smoke detectors throughout the Graduate Student Housing community will result in the facility being closed during summer 2017. The project is scheduled to commence on July 1 and conclude in mid-September. During this time, residents will be assigned to apartments at Kresge College. More »

The apartments are set in a beautifully landscaped natural environment conveniently located adjacent to "Science Hill", home to many of UCSC's main academic facilities.
