Housing

On-Campus: Arroyo Vista Housing

Living on campus during Freshman Edge is an optional, though highly recommended aspect of the program.

By choosing to live on campus during the program, you will be grouped with other Freshman Edge students and will be able to best take advantage of the many student life opportunities organized exclusively for Freshman Edge students. You will also have the unique opportunity to learn from experienced UCI students who will be living with you as Resident Assistants (RA’s).

Freshman Edge housing is a 10-15 minute walk from campus and is located in the on-campus undergraduate community of Arroyo Vista. Houses feature 12-32 beds, a full kitchen, and access to laundry. Program Housing is offered on a first-come, first-served basis, so apply early!

I would strongly advise Freshman Edge students to dorm and live on campus even if you will be commuting in the fall. Freshman Edge Participant

Timeline

Please Note: Freshman Edge housing is completely separate from your academic year housing and requires a separate contract.
