Resources for Students and Housing Interest for Winter

Section 1

November 16, 2020

Dear UCI Student,

As we head toward the end of the Fall Quarter, we continue to be greatly impressed by your resilience and fortitude in navigating this pandemic while balancing your academic and personal commitments. Our collective sacrifices have allowed us to keep campus COVID-19 positivity rates low as we continue to find ways to support the campus community through programs, resources and activities. In preparation for the upcoming Winter Quarter, we want to remind you of the various resources and support available to you.

Also, we are attempting to gauge your interest to live on campus (residence halls or apartments) for the remainder of the academic year, please indicate your interest HERE so we can send you information.
