On-Campus Living

Winter/Spring 2021 On-Campus Housing Update

The residential experience for students living on campus will continue to be modified during this pandemic based upon the latest guidance from state and county public health officials. As was shared recently, we will have a small number of students living on-campus. These students have been confirmed.

As the COVID-19 conditions in Santa Clara County continue to shift, we will communicate additional information regarding the potential for spring term housing. Make sure to check your SCU email frequently.

Spring 2021 Housing and Dining FAQ

We realize that students and families will have questions about housing and dining as you plan for the remainder of the winter term, as well as the spring term. We invite you to carefully review these frequently asked questions.

Spring 2021 COVID Addendum to the UHC

Students assigned to spring 2021 housing will be required to agree to the spring 2021 COVID-19 addendum to the University Housing Contract (UHC) in order to secure a space in on-campus housing. Please make sure to review the addendum thoroughly and reach out to with any questions. 

Room and Board Rates

The University will implement single-occupancy housing accommodations, but students placed in residence halls will only be charged the standard double-occupancy rate. The only exception will be students placed in University Villas. These students will be charged the University regular single room rate.
