On Campus Housing

There are advantages to living on campus. Living on campus helps make you a part of the UC community. All the residence halls and apartments are just minutes from your 8:00 am class, the library and computer labs. In fact, many of the residence halls have computer labs! You have a variety of living choices—there are even special floors for certain academic majors such as Engineering, DAAP, CCM or Honors. All residence halls are non-smoking. Within the halls, classes are offered in a variety of subjects and services, such as study skills workshops, and tutoring to support students’ learning. Residence halls also offer a wide range of fun social programs and interesting educational and cultural events. Choose the meal plan that fits your appetite and you won’t have to shop, cook, or wash dishes. All residence halls include cable, Ethernet, a microwave and refrigerator, and telephone service in each room at no extra cost. All of this takes place in a living community that promotes safety with around-the-clock staffing, sophisticated fire protection systems and campus efforts such as NightRide (a safety escort program) and emergency help telephones located throughout campus.
