Most grad students live off campus. Some grad students live on campus, in either Grad Student Housing or Family & Student housing.


Affordable housing can be difficult to find in Santa Cruz, but it can be done. You should plan to devote at least some time during the spring/summer to looking for housing. 


If you plan to live off campus, then you and/or one of your hopeful housemates should probably plan to be looking for a place *in-person*.  It's much easier to find a landlord who is willing to rent a house/room/apartment if at least one of you is there in person.  If you email the grads email list, you might be able to find someone who can temporarily house you while you are looking for a place.


On-campus housing is easier to get into if you aren't here in person.  Living on campus is more convenient for getting to class + the office, but it's less convenient for going to the grocery store / shops / downtown / restaurants.  Also, at least for grad student housing (I don't know about Family & Student Housing), living on campus is more expensive than living off campus (for similar room types).
