Welcome Incoming Transfer Students!

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

If you are a new transfer student who submitted their SIR by May 1 and also applied for housing by May 1, you will be able to complete your housing contract process beginning on June 9, 2014. Please be on the lookout for an email with instructions on where to begin your contract process. If you have not received the email by June 10, please contact housinginfo@ucsd.edu.

New incoming transfer students who complete the UCSD Housing Contract and successfully make the $650 pre-payment by the stated deadline of June 30, 2014 at midnight, are eligible for the Self-Selection Process. The Self-Selection Process allows you to select your housing space online for the 2014-15 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.



Got a roommate?
If you wish to room with someone who is already assigned a space at the Village - great! Find out where they are currently assigned to live and you can select a space in their apartment if one is available.

Want to room with a new transfer student?
Talk with your roomie(s) ahead of time and find out which of you has the earliest login time. The person with the earliest login time can log in and pull in their desired roommate(s) with their access codes and sign you all up at once. It’s easy! The other roommate(s) do not need to log in to select a space but will be able to log in and view the room that was selected.

LGBT Housing: If you selected this option when completing your housing contract, you will receive further information about selecting 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 our office between July 14 – July 25.

Additional Housing Options:

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.

If you are interested in Village Scholars Housing, you will have the option to submit an application when the Self-Selection Portal opens up on July 9th. For specific information, please contact The Village Residential Services Office at 858.534.9380.

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.

If you are interested in such Housing, you will have the option to submit an application when the Self-Selection Portal opens up on July 9th. For specific information, please contact The Village Residential Services Office at 858.534.9380. Please note that Substance Free Housing will have a separate self-selection day.
