Welcome Incoming Transfer Students!

Congratulations on being accepted into UCSD – we are excited to have you join us at The Village at Torrey Pines.

New incoming transfer students who completed the UCSD Housing Contract and successfully made the $650 pre-payment by the stated deadline of June 30, 2015 at midnight, are eligible for the Self-Selection Process. The Self-Selection Process allows you to select your housing space online for the 2015-16 Academic Year. The Self-Selection Process takes place over a few days.

Each eligible student will receive a lottery time and access code to login to the Self-Selection Portal. Lottery times will be assigned based on when you signed your Housing Contract during the contracting process. You can login any time after your lottery time until the end of the process. For more information about the Self Selection Process, see our FAQ’s.




Applications for Additional Housing Opportunities and Roommate Requests are available online from July 7th through 11:59pm on Wednesday, July 15th! Get your applications in now!


Want a roommate?

You must fill out the roommate request form online (available beginning July 7th through the New Transfer Self-Selection Portal).

  • If you want to live with someone already assigned at the Village, this is the only way to request them as a roommate.
  • If you want to live with a new incoming transfer student, this is the only way to request them as a roommate.

REMINDER: Requests are not guaranteed, but we will try to make every effort to accommodate.

LGBT Housing: If you selected this option when completing your housing contract, you will receive further information about being assigned to a space in this area.

Students registered with OSD: If you registered with OSD and were approved to receive any housing accommodations, expect to receive a phone call from the Village Residential Services Office between July 20 – July 24.

Additional Housing Options:

The Village offers three (3) additional Housing Options. Descriptions of the program are below. If you are interested in one of these communities, click on the New Transfer Self-Selection Portal button above. Please note that the Village will work with you (if accepted into the additional housing option) on your Fall 2015 assignment. You may be pre-assigned to a space.

Village Scholars Housing: The Village and Academic divisions at UC San Diego will collaborate to create a continuing Live and Learn student community with a focus towards a specific academic program among self-selected groups of students who are drawn together by shared goals and common intellectual interests.

Substance Free Housing: The Village is home to students of all ages, many of whom are above the legal drinking age. As such, The Village recognizes the appeal of a substance-free community.

Transfer Success Community: You will live in a floor exclusively with brand new transfer students (not college specific). You will be exposed to a variety of programs to expand and enhance educational and social experiences while providing exposure to diverse ideas and viewpoints of fellow students. Workshops will be available in your living environment to help you navigate campus. You will also have one-on-one access to Student Success Mentors to ease the transition to University life, exploring successful opportunities and maximizing academic potential. Take advantage of this new and unique opportunity specifically for incoming students.

Please note this community has limited space and will be pre-assigned based on gender, you will not be able to select your bed space but can indicate a roommate request through the online roommate request application. It must be mutual and both must indicate interest in the community.
