September Temporary Housing

September Temporary Housing is full and we are no longer accepting reservations.

COVID Protocols for September Temporary Housing

Vaccination: All students staying in September Temporary Housing must either be up-to-date* (including any booster doses when eligible) with a COVID vaccine that is authorized by the World Health Organization (WHO) and show proof of their up to date vaccination status upon check-in OR they must provide proof of a negative COVID test upon check-in and test regularly during their time on campus (see below)

Unvaccinated Students and Students Who are Not Up-To-Date* on their Vaccination: Must produce a recent negative test result upon arrival (24 hours for antigen test or 48 hours for PCR test). Every 7 days while onsite, they must produce a negative test to the front desk. The front desk will not provide tests, so students should arrange their own testing. 

Quarantine/Isolation: It is important that students arrive on campus with a plan about what to do if they or a roommate tests positive for COVID as campus resources for quarantine and isolation will be extremely limited.  Students will continue to be provided with updates to our policies and procedures as the situation continues to evolve.

Additional COVID-19 Requirements: Students agree to comply with any additional COVID-19 related procedures that may be implemented by the University, County, or State.

*A person is considered up-to-date on COVID-19 vaccinations when they have received all recommended COVID-19 vaccinations, including booster doses when eligible. People who are not up to date on their COVID-19 vaccinations include: (i) people of all ages, including children, who have not completed a series of primary vaccinations to protect against COVID-19; (ii) individuals <2 weeks after the primary vaccination series; (iii) individuals with an approved exception or deferral to UC Policy: SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) Vaccination Program; (iv) persons who have completed a primary vaccination series and are eligible for the booster, but have not received a booster dose.

September Temporary Housing is available to UCSB students seeking permanent local housing or while they wait for their fall housing to begin. These transition times are often challenging and we are here to provide a helpful option.
