UC Santa Barbara is excited to offer a housing incentive during Summer 2020, to support students who wish to leverage Summer Sessions to achieve their educational goals. This incentive credits eligible students living in University Apartments with up to $1000*! Additionally, in recognition of challenging circumstances around COVID-19, eligibility for the housing incentive in Summer 2020 has been expanded to include those who are living outside of university-owned housing. Eligible students may qualify for up to $500 in aid**. The goal of this incentive is to allow you to make the most of your summer by focusing on your coursework, knowing that you are living in free or substantially reduced housing while you make progress toward your degree objectives. 

Eligibility Requirements

  • UCSB Scholarship Eligible

  • California Resident

  • Enroll in and complete 12 units during the 2020 Summer term
