Summer Session high school students are eligible (but not required) to live in a residence hall on campus and participate in the summer campus meal plan. After you're enrolled in classes, you can apply for housing. If you want to live off campus, check out the community rentals page, provided by UC Santa Cruz.

These establishments accept cash and card for students living off campus. For students living on campus, housing and dining are a combined plan/application. Students choosing to live on campus are allocated a balance of ‘Slug Points’ which they can use at any campus dining hall, or PERK Coffee Bar with their student ID card as part of their Housing/Dining plan.
