Housing Resources

Acropolis, Greece - Aaron Baker

The California Housing Board provides a forum to share information about available housing. This is to benefit UC students who can post about housing offers and for incoming reciprocity students who are looking for housing for one, two or three quarters during their UC studies.

The Board is hosted on the Tapatalk platform. The UC Santa Cruz and the University of California are not monitoring the posts nor are responsible for the posts’ content. The University of California is not affiliated with Tapatalk and does not endorse any of the advertising that appears on the platform.
