UC Irvine offers guaranteed on-campus housing to all new Ph.D., M.F.A. and J.D. students who are admitted prior to the housing application deadline, May 1, 2017 for fall 2017 entry. On-campus housing provides students with a community environment while they pursue their studies. Housing offers are for one of six graduate housing communities and must be accepted prior to arrival at UCI. Eligibility for housing extends for a minimum of three years, with the possibility of lease renewal thereafter. The UCI Graduate Housing Guarantee offers:
The security of knowing that you will have a place to live on campus by the start of fall quarter.
The convenience of living close to classes and campus resources.
An opportunity to meet fellow graduate students from across the campus.
Rental rates that are typically much lower than the local housing market.
