  • Best-Fit Offer: Preferences indicated in your application are used to make a “best fit” offer. Placement in a specific community or apartment type is not assured. Leases will begin on the date the space is available for occupancy. Housing cannot guarantee the availability of specific spaces to match specific arrival dates. In some instances, students may need to begin their lease before their arrival.
  • High demand/low supply floor plans: These are 12-month communities where the majority of spaces are already committed to continuing students. Very few (if any) spaces may be available for units that are in high demand or low supply, such as 1-Bedroom and 3-Bedroom units, or our lower-priced apartments.
  • Smoke-Free: All communities are smoke-free. Use of tobacco products or electronic smoking devices are strictly prohibited in indoor and outdoor spaces, including parking lots.
  • Animals: All apartments in Campus Village, Vista del Campo, Vista del Campo Norte and Puerta del Sol are ''pet-free". Some apartments in Palo Verde and Verano Place are designated as "pet-free" More policy information is available at http://www.housing.uci.edu/communityLife/Graduate_Policies.html

  • Studio apartments: There are no studio units available in Palo Verde for Fall 2017.

  • ADA Accommodations: If you or a member of your household is seeking an ADA accommodation for Housing, contact the Disability Services Center in advance to learn about the process http://www.disability.uci.edu/
  • Students who do not accept the guarantee housing community assignment may elect to be placed on the wait-list for another community. If the student is placed from the waitlist on or before the first day of classes, they will retain their housing guarantee; however, if they are placed after classes begin, they are offered housing for the current academic year only, forfeiting their guaranteed status. Their lease agreements may or may not be renewable, based on space availability. Students should consider the significant risk involved in this option.
