COVID-19 Update: Cal Housing continues to offer housing for students for Spring, Summer, and Fall 2020. It is not possible to know at this time whether the COVID-19 pandemic will allow for normal operations. Consequently, we cannot guarantee housing priority for new incoming students at this time but we are committed to supporting students if they want to live on or near campus.
