Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost to live in UCSF Housing?

Our rates vary, depending on location, amenities, and size. View all of our rental rates here.

Who is eligible to live in UCSF Housing?

Many students, postdocs, residents, clinical fellows, and some faculty are eligible for housing. Please review our Eligibility Requirements to see if you qualify.

What is the application process?

Please refer to the Apply Now page for process details. There are no fees to apply.

Do I have to pay a deposit?

When you sign your Housing Agreement, you will need to make an initial rent payment for one full month’s rent. This amount is applied to your pro-rated first month’s rent. Any remaining balance will be credited to your account for the following month’s rent.

Do you run a credit check on prospective tenants?

No, we do not. Your affiliation with UCSF negates the need to run a credit check.

How long does my Housing Agreement last?

All Housing Agreements begin on the first date of occupancy and end on the following July 1st. If you wish to continue past July 1st, you will sign a Housing Agreement for a full year to the following July 1st.
All tenants are limited to 5 years in campus housing.  Click here to see a sample of the housing lease agreement.

We appreciated being able to live at Aldea during our child’s early, formative years.  He has been able to interact with all the wonderful people and also to take part in many activities here. Sadly, we can’t live here forever and plan on moving on—but we will never forget you or this place.
