UC Irvine offers apartment style housing to graduate and professional degree students and families. The navigation menus at the top of the page provide full details on housing options and the application process.

Apply for Graduate and Family Housing

Students must submit their Statement of Intent to Register (SIR) 24-48 hours before they can access the housing application. The 2014-15 Graduate and Family Housing Application opens on March 10th. Find application instructions here, and be sure to read the Important Notes on the Housing Offer Process at the bottom of the page.

Students who are newly enrolling in the fall in a Ph.D., M.F.A., or J.D. degree program are eligible for the Graduate Housing Guarantee and must apply by  May 1 (4:30 p.m., PST). Housing community offers are sent mid-May, and students must respond by the deadline indicated in the offer. Specific housing assignments are made to guaranteed students beginning in June. Email questions about guaranteed housing to gradguarantee@housing.hsg.uci.edu

Students pursuing a Masters degree or teaching credential, undergraduates over the age of 25, and students with families may apply to the housing waitlist, and offers are made after guaranteed students are served. More information about the housing waitlist here.

Learn About Your Housing Options

Housing options vary for single students, students who are married or in domestic partnerships, and students living with children. See which communities you are eligible for on the Where Can I Live? page.

Housing options vary in terms of size, cost, and amenities. Research your housing options before you apply. Find descriptions of each community under the Housing Options tab at the top of the page. See photos of the UCI graduate housing communities in our Facebook Photo Gallery.
