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

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.  


The housing office can also help connect students with many off-campus housing options. The Off-Campus Housing (OCH) website at allows landlords to list properties available for rent and renters to find properties to rent and/or to do roommate searchers.
