Finding Housing

UC Merced Housing and Residence Life Office 

The UC Merced Housing and Residence Life Office has many resources available to assist you in your housing search. This should be the first place you start your search for housing. The website will assist you with finding on-campus and off-campus housing options.


On-campus housing is available to undergraduate students in F-1 and J-1 status and on some cases visiting scholars. You can find more information regarding on-campus housing through the housing office's website.  

Share your international experience and meet other students interested in the world! Consider living on-campus in the International House LLC (Living Learning Community). Learn more about International LLC by clicking here, or contact


The housing office can also help connect students with many off-campus housing options. The Off-Campus Housing (OCH) website lists properties available for rent. Renters can search for properties to rent and/or roommates.


This is a student-run Facebook group for finding housing -
