Housing Guarantee

As of April 1, 2011:

*Housing Guarantee for Veterans, Reservists (including National Guard) and Active Duty Service Members.*

Eligible service members, reservists, and veterans are guaranteed an offer of on-campus housing for four years or Normal Time To Degree (whichever is greater). The housing guarantee applies to both eligible students who are single and those with families. The housing guarantee will remain in place if a degree program is interrupted by a deployment. Service members should register with UCI Veterans Services Office in order for your eligibility status to be confirmed. If you are already receiving GI Bill Benefits then you are already registered. 

If you are an undergraduate your guarantee includes Graduate and Family housing as well.  You must apply for housing through the normal housing application found on the UCI Housing website.  Make sure to indicate on the application that you are a veteran, reservist or active duty servicemember.  If for some reason you forget or do not see a place to indicate, follow up with housing by calling and letting them know you have applied and your military status.  They will contact the Veteran Services Center to verify your status.  If you have not registered with this office please make sure to submit a DD 214 or your military orders to our office so that we can confirm with housing.  You can submit via email or fax to veteran@uci.edu or 949.824.7971.   For more information on housing accommodations, contact Student Housing at housing@uci.edu or by calling (949) 824-6811.  

*This policy does not apply to students enrolled in ROTC.
