Read on to learn about the benefits of living on campus this summer.
Living on campus during Transfer Edge is an optional, though highly recommended aspect of the program.
For students 18-24 years of age: You may be interested to live in the Transfer Edge House in the on-campus undergraduate community of Arroyo Vista (AV). The AV Transfer Edge House is a 10-15 minute walk from campus. Houses feature 12-32 beds, a full kitchen, and access to laundry.
By choosing to live in Arroyo Vista during the program, you will be grouped with other Transfer Edge students and will be able to best take advantage of the many student life opportunities organized exclusively for Transfer 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).
Program Housing is offered on a first-come, first-served basis, so apply early! Forms submitted after the residential deadline will be handled on a case-by-case basis.
NOTE: Per Arroyo Vista’s contract: Residency under [their] agreement is limited to participants under the age of 25.
Residency in Arroyo Vista Housing for participants 25 years of age or older is subject to administrative review and approval by UCI Student Housing. Please send an email to our office to make a request. You may search a variety of other housing options through the UCI Housing Office. Do not hesitate to contact the Transfer Edge team for guidance and suggestions.
How to Apply for Summer Housing in Arroyo Vista Housing
Please follow the steps below to obtain and submit a Summer Housing Contract:
- Indicate in your Transfer Edge enrollment information that you are interested in housing for summer, and submit your enrollment form before the residential student deadline (Late May for Session I & Late June for Session II).
- Once Summer Session has finished processing your enrollment, you will receive a "welcome" email from the Transfer Edge team with directions on how to register for summer housing. You should expect this e-mail within 7-10 business days after you are enrolled in your summer courses.
- Follow the instructions in the welcome e-mail to sign and submit a housing contract. Contracts are separate from your academic year housing contract.
- Once your contract is received and processed, you will receive a confirmation from UCI's Housing department.
Please Note: Transfer Edge housing is completely separate from your academic year housing and requires a separate contract.
Please note that the due date for Transfer Edge Housing Contracts are prior to the final Transfer Edge Enrollment Form deadlines. If you are interested in living in Transfer Edge Housing, we recommend you submit your Enrollment Form well ahead of the Contract deadline. Our team can only send you a Summer Housing Contract once we have received and processed your Enrollment Form.
Students are responsible for cancelling their program housing contract should they decide not to attend the program. Your housing contract is a legally binding agreement, and a late cancellation charge will be assessed should you decide to cancel your housing contract. The amount of the late cancellation charge is assessed on a sliding scale (see housing contract). Prior to the start date of your housing contract, you may submit a contract cancellation form, which must include your signature, your UCI Student ID# and contract type. If you were under 18 years old at the time you signed your contract, the cancellation form must include the signatures of both the student and the guarantor (parent or legal guardian) named on your contract. After the start date of your housing contract, you must contact Arroyo Vista directly as cancellation requests submitted will be subject to administrative review.
