Immerse yourself in the college experience

Living on campus makes it easy.

Due to the circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, on-campus housing operations and housing guarantees will change for the 2021-2022 academic year. Undergraduate Housing will be offered as space allows, but cannot be guaranteed. For more information, please visit the Housing website.

UCI’s housing communities offer residents resort-like amenities, excellent dining facilities, special programs and events, and a wide-variety of housing options including residence halls, theme houses, and apartments. Take a look at our housing community descriptions and what residents of each community have to say about their on-campus living experience.

  • Residence Halls

    Mesa Court and Middle Earth are first-year housing communities offering a wide range of theme halls with live-in resident advisors. 

    Mesa Court is truly UCI’s oasis. The people you meet, the lifelong connections you make, and the opportunities you are exposed to create an inviting atmosphere where you can thrive both academically and socially.”

    “I love everything about Mesa Court. It makes me feel like I'm part of a community. I'm glad I got this opportunity to live in the dorms as a freshman.”

    “Living in Middle Earth is like a dream come true: Convenient on-campus location, friendly staff and residents, and everyone comes to eat lunch or dinner here - What more could you ask for?”

    “The convenience and atmosphere of Middle Earth are the best! It's really allowed me to adapt well to college life.”

  • Theme Houses

    Arroyo Vista is a theme house community serving sophomores, juniors, and seniors, including transfer students.  It offers a wide range of academic-sponsored and Greek-sponsored (sorority and fraternity) house options. Themes include areas such as Humanities, Chemistry, Culinary Arts, International, Engineering, Biology, as well as many more.

    “The Arroyo Vista community is comfortable to be in. It is a nice place to do all sorts of activities, yet it can also be a good place to study and work on academics. The people are friendly and it is easy to meet new people. The staff are very helpful and respond quickly.”

    “The location of Arroyo Vista is what made me want to live here. I love living on campus compared to commuting, and it has improved my experience at UCI.”

  • Apartments

    Campus Village offers independent year-round living for both undergraduate and graduate students, with all the advantages of on-campus housing, including live-on support staff, community facilities, convenience, and affordability.

    Wonderful! Got to meet some really nice people and made great friends.”

    “I love living here. It's a perfect balance of independence and cooperation with other residents.”
