Undergrad Waitlist

The Undergraduate Waitlist open on a quarterly basis.  Students need to apply each quarter they are in need of housing.  Contracts are offered based on date in which you applied, the gender of roommates in the space available, available spaces and room type, and the location of the vacancy.  Students are responsible for updating their information through the waitlist form.  If you are no longer in need of housing, please use the button below to login and remove yourself from the waitlist.

Understanding the Undergraduate Waitlist

Fall 2023 Quarter:

Waitlist Opens:  April 3, 2023 (for current continuing students)
Waitlist Opens:  July 6, 2023 (for new Fall 2023 incoming students)
Waitlist Closes:  July 25, 2023 


Weekly Update for the week of 9/18/23:  The undergraduate waitlist remains closed.  If you already applied to the waitlist, you can update your information or remove yourself if needed. We are currently making a limited number of waitlist offers based on a small amount of available vacancies. Students will receive the offer at their UCSD email account and generally have 72 hours to accept the housing offer.  

Students were emailed on 8/9/23 with a status update. We strongly recommend students to seek off-campus housing sooner rather than later to ensure that they have housing secured at the start of the academic year.  

Here are resources to help you with your off-campus housing search:  

  • Off-Campus Housing Website – Tools and More
    UC San Diego’s Basic Needs Center offers university-specific house listings through the Off-Campus Housing website. The site offers available rental listings, single-room rentals, roommate profiles, plan your commute tools, and more. Please log in with your student sign-on credentials. Additionally, students can join the UCSD Student Off-Campus Housing Facebook Group to connect with other students who need a roommate or have a room for rent. 
  • Alternative Housing for Short or Longer Term – Option 1:   Framework Apartments, located in downtown San Diego, is a brand-new community owned by UC San Diego dedicated to providing the highest quality housing for the UC San Diego community.

Framework is located two blocks from the Park & Market station on the UC San Diego Blue Line, which provides direct access to the La Jolla campus.   
  • Alternative Housing for Fall 2023 Only – Option 2:   UC San Diego has negotiated discounted rates with a local partner hotel conveniently located next to campus. If you would like to take advantage of this option, please contact the hotel directly to make a reservation.
