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. Find application instructions here, and be sure to read the Terms and Conditions associated with the Graduate Housing Guarantee.

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). Most housing assignments will be sent to guaranteed students by July 1st. 

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.
