Summer Session Housing
Summer Session students interested in university housing may apply to live in the College Nine residence halls. Living in the residence halls provides students with the opportunity to meet and interact with other college students from UC Santa Cruz and other campuses, cities, states, and countries.
College Nine offers double (two-person), and a limited number of triple (three-person) and single (one-person) residence hall rooms with shared bathroom facilities and community space. Additional amenities include Internet access, cable television, computer/technical support, and laundry facilities.
Live-in residential staff provides community development activities and social programs throughout the Summer Session to create a sense of community among the residents. The staff members are all trained in conflict resolution and crisis intervention, emergency procedures, as well as university policies and regulations. They are available to you as a resource for on- and off- campus information. Most importantly, they are there to assist you in whatever way possible.
Based on student feedback and a commitment to provide residential Summer Session students with a dining program that offers flexibility, variety and value, UC Santa Cruz Dining offers a Slug Points dining plan. Slug Points is a declining balance dining plan accepted at any open UC Santa Cruz Dining Hall, Banana Joe's Late Night Lounge, and at PERK Coffee Bars. Value is maximized so you can choose how many points to spend at any time – purchase a meal, a snack, or just a cup of coffee. Students who use their Slug Points to purchase a meal in the dining halls receive a special discounted price.
Each residential student receives an allocation of Slug Points based on the length of residency. Slug Points have a 100% value (each Slug Point has a value of $1) when spent and the amount spent is simply deducted from your dining plan. Slug Points are accessed with your student ID and are valid from the first day of the contract period through the last day of Summer Session.
To Apply for Summer Session Housing
The Summer Session Housing Application/Contract is available through Student Housing Online (studenthousing.ucsc.edu) beginning May 1, 2013. Housing is limited and priority will be given to students who submit a housing application and the required payment before May 31, 2013.
How to Log In to Student Housing Online
- UCSC students must use a registered CruzID (UCSC email address) and blue password (email password) to log in. (Note: see the Frequently Asked Questions on the Information Technology Services website for more information on CruzID Blue.)
- Visiting students (i.e. attending summer session only) who were not assigned a CruzID can log in using student ID and birthdate. (Note: visiting students must be enrolled in a Summer Session term and be assigned a seven-digit Student ID Number by the Summer Session Office in order to apply for housing.)
Payment and Billing
During the online housing application process, you will be required to print a "Billing Statement" and return it, with full payment, to the Campus Housing Office (address included on the statement form). Full payment must be received within five (5) business days of the date you submit your application or prior to move-in, whichever is sooner. Failure to do so may void your application. Accepted forms of payment include personal check, cashier's check, money order, or credit card.
Financial Aid: most aid award(s) will credit directly to a student’s university billing account once all the conditions for aid disbursement have been met. It is understood that any remaining housing/dining balance is the responsibility of the student and must be paid upon return of the Billing Statement form. Financial Aid recipients are required to complete the following steps as part of the Billing Statement requirement:
- Review and ensure all financial aid eligibility requirements have been met (financialaid.ucsc.edu/apply-receive/summer.html)
- Receive a summary of financial aid award(s) from an adviser in the Financial Aid and Scholarships Office
- Submit this form and review financial aid summary with an adviser in the Campus Housing Office
Transitional Housing is available to UCSC students who live on campus in spring 2013 and need to "transition" to a summer session housing assignment at Colleges Nine and Ten. Transitional Housing, also located at Colleges Nine and Ten, is available June 17 - June 23.
- Students approved for Transitional Housing will be allowed to move to College Nine or College Ten starting at 4pm on Monday, June 17th, 2013. In order to be allowed to stay in your current housing assignment until that time, you will need to arrange for a late move-out at your current community. Contact your Housing Coordinator to make arrangements.
- Note: Transitional Housing is also available to UCSC students who live in summer session housing and also have a fall 2013 housing assignment.
