A NOTE ABOUT BUDGETING FOR Off-Campus Housing IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA

Our on/off campus housing budget has been derived by student-reported rent averages in and around the neighborhoods surrounding UC San Diego's campus. As a student, you are expected to live modestly and within the set budget for the year. It is important to keep in mind, the HSFAO does not approve budget extensions for rent. Further information about off-campus housing can be found on the UCSD Off-Campus Housing website. In addition, a Market Comparison of the surrounding apartment complexes, can be found on the Housing Dining Hospitality FAQ page.
