Summer Session Housing

Summer Session students live at College Nine in the residence halls. To promote safe physical distancing, all students will be assigned to single-occupancy spaces and all rooms will be at the triple room rate. Residence halls have shared bathroom facilities. Additional amenities include internet access, cable television, computer/technical support, and laundry facilities.

Each residence hall student receives an allocation of dining Slug Points based on the length of residency. Slug Points is a declining balance plan accepted at any open UC Santa Cruz Dining location. You choose how many points to spend at any time – purchase a meal, a snack, or just a cup of coffee. Each Slug Point has a dining value of $1 and the amount spent is simply deducted from the dining plan on your student ID card.


Apply for Summer Session Housing

The Summer Session Housing Application is available beginning May 8 at studenthousing.ucsc.edu. Housing is limited, to those who satisfy one or more of the conditions for summer housing and priority will be given to students who submit a housing application by May 31.

Students must be enrolled in the summer session term for which they are applying to live in university housing.


Transitional Housing

UCSC students who live on-campus and need continuous housing between the academic year and summer session (spring-summer transition and/or summer-fall transition) can apply for transitional housing (studenthousing.ucsc.edu).

  • Spring-Summer Transitional Housing students move from their spring housing assignments to summer session housing on Tuesday, June 16, 2020. To be allowed to stay in your spring assignment until that time you also need to request a contract extension (studenthousing.ucsc.edu).
  • Summer-Fall Transitional Housing is available to students who live in Session 2 or 10-week summer session housing and also have a fall housing assignment. Students in Summer-Fall Transitional Housing are automatically signed up for the Early Arrival Program and will relocate to their fall residence at the conclusion of transitional housing. Additional early arrival fees apply.


Billing and Payment

Once assigned to housing, charges will be posted to your university billing account and an electronic billing statement will be generated. You can view your billing statement and account activity online through the Student Portal (my.ucsc.edu).

Financial Aid: Any housing/dining balance not covered by financial aid awards is the responsibility of the student. Financial Aid recipients are advised to:

  1. Review and ensure all financial aid eligibility requirements have been met (financialaid.ucsc.edu)
  2. Review a summary of financial aid award(s) with an adviser in the Financial Aid and Scholarship Office

Summer Cancellation Process:

  • Prior to taking residence, if your plans change and you are unable to live in university housing, you must login to studenthousing.ucsc.edu and cancel your application/contract.
  • After taking residence, requests for housing contract cancellation must be initiated through this online form. The housing office at your residential community will contact you regarding your request. Moving out or turning in keys without official approval will not release you from your contractual obligation, and you will continue to be billed accordingly.
