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.

The Graduate and Family Housing team is working diligently on planning for the 2020-21 academic year. We recognize these are unprecedented times. The current pandemic has created new challenges, concerns, and questions for both current and incoming residents. Many residents are asking similar questions, so we have worked to develop a comprehensive frequently asked questions (FAQ) resource to help answer the many questions we are receiving around COVID.

Students who are newly enrolling in the fall in a Ph.D., M.F.A., J.D., or Prime-LC, LEAD-ABC, or MSTP M.D. degree program are eligible for the Graduate Housing Guarantee and must apply by  May 1 (4:00 p.m., PST). Most housing assignments will be sent to guaranteed students by July 31st. 

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.
