How to apply?

Apply online at this site. If you are applying to Family Student Housing for the first time, complete all required fields (marked with a red "*").

  • If you are a student when you apply, your application will go directly to a waiting list.
  • If you are not yet a student, your application will be added to a waiting list (according to your application date) once you are accepted to UCSB.

Update Application

  • Update at the beginning of every quarter (you will receive email reminders). If you do not update your application, it will become inactive.
  • Contracts are not offered to people with inactive applications.
  • Update your contact information, especially email addresses and telephone numbers, so that we can reach you when we are able to offer you a contract.

When to apply?

  • There is no deadline - the online application process is open throughout the year and you can apply before you are accepted to UCSB.

Waiting Period

  • Families with children: the average wait is 30-60 days to 6 months
  • Families without children: the average wait is 3 - 9 months
