Housing and Dining
On-campus housing is optional for Transfer Academy students, but strongly recommended! All Summer Session and Summer Academy students are housed at one of UCSC’s ten beautiful colleges. For Summer 2017, students will live in Porter college, home of the iconic Porter Squiggle and UCSC’s transfer community.
While Academy students have the opportunity to connect with current UCSC students enrolled in Summer Session, separate housing is reserved especially for Transfer Academy students, Transfer Academy Peer Mentors, and Residence Assistants (RAs).
Summer Academy housing gives Academy students the opportunity to dorm together, get to know one another, experience residential life at UCSC, and participate in on-campus events and activities organized by their Peer Mentors and RAs.
Summer Academy Move-in
- Transfer Academy students who choose to live on campus will move into Porter College on Thursday, July 27.
- If you plan to fly into Mineta San Jose International Airport (SJC) on Thursday, July 27 for the Transfer Academy, please email your flight itinerary to firstname.lastname@example.org by July 10 to arrange a complimentary airport pickup. If your airline does not fly into SJC, please fly into San Francisco (SFO). San Jose is much closer.
Apply for Summer Academy Housing
Once you have successfully completed all steps to register for the Summer Academy program please see UCSC’s Summer Academy Housing page for more information about Summer Academy housing and dining. Housing applications will begin being accepted starting Monday, June 12.
Transfer Academy students who live on campus are given access to open dining halls, coffee bars, cafes, and other eateries on-campus for the duration of the program. Housing and dining are a combined plan/application and students are allocated a balance of ‘Slug Points’ which can be used at any campus dining hall, or PERK Coffee Bar with a student ID Card.
