Housing

The Arroyo Vista Housing community is located on the east side of the campus and offers summer housing contracts to students between 17 and 25 years of age, who are currently affiliated with UCI, enrolled in a summer session, or accepted for the Fall 2009 quarter. Students affiliated with UCI do not need to attend a summer session to live in Arroyo Vista during the summer, however, and may apply to live in either double or single occupancy rooms.
