Typical Housing Costs Near UC Campuses

The Total Cost of Attendance (TCOA) at the University of California includes tuition, fees, and expenses for housing, food, educational materials, and transportation. For undergraduates, the UC Office of the President develops the cost of attendance based in part on results of its University-wide Cost of Attendance Survey. 1 The estimated costs for three living categories (on-campus, off-campus, living with parents) at each UC undergraduate campus is listed here. The 2019-20 estimate for other cost-of-living categories at the University of California can be found here. For graduate students, each campus and program may establish the cost of attendance, although data are collected systemwide for their use here; visit the websites of each graduate program for additional information.

Linked below are typical housing rates near campuses derived from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).2 Table 1 displays the monthly rent for one-and two-bedroom apartments, and Table 2 lists the cost of one-person bedrooms in private houses near UC campuses.
