2020 Summer Housing Incentive

UC Santa Barbara is excited to offer a housing incentive during Summer 2020, to support students who wish to leverage Summer Sessions to acheive their educational goals. This incentive credits eligible students living in University Apartments with $1000*! This means you can focus on your coursework, knowing that you are living in free or substantially reduced housing with easy access to campus. For example, if you live in a 1-3 bedroom apartment with triple occupancy for one session, then you may have $0 rent this summer**!
