More about University Living
University Living offers something for both on-campus residents and those commuting from off campus.
At UC San Diego, you get to learn where you live - in one of our diverse residential neighborhoods. Residential facilities are unique to each College and offer a variety of room sizes and layouts, as well as dining options.
If you’re a first-year student, you’ll likely live at your College or in one of our other dynamic undergraduate communities. If you’re an incoming transfer student, you will have the option to live on campus in a transfer student centered living-learning community.
Residence halls and apartments provide a wide range of experiences including community development activities, 24/7 security, and a team of Residential staff to support you. UC San Diego’s Housing and Dining program is one of the most comprehensive and lowest priced in the UC system.
