students walking around campus


On-campus residents create lasting friendships.

Your home away from home awaits you at UC Merced.

Living on campus is more than just having a place to eat and sleep. Students who live on campus are within walking distance of classes and resources such as the library, computer labs, the health center, bookstore and recreational and athletic facilities. On-campus living also provides students with numerous opportunities to meet new people and establish friendships that can last a lifetime.

Where you live as a university student directly affects the quality of your educational experience, and national statistics show that students who live on campus do better academically.

Learn more about on-campus living through Housing and Residence Education, including detailed information about residential facilities, services, amenities and living options.
