The new Housing Access Policy--which includes staff members and non-Senate academics as well as faculty members--will be discussed at campus forums on July 1, 3, and 8.

And July 11 is the deadline for eligible staff and non-Senate academics to apply for selection in the housing lottery.

Under the new Housing Access Policy, which applies to units managed by the Faculty and Staff Rental Program:

  • A fixed allocation of available for-sale and rental units will be distributed to Academic Senate faculty (80 percent), non-Senate academics (5 percent), and staff (15 percent).
  • An employee must be 100 percent time with a minimum of a one-year appointment to be eligible to participate.
  • Persons who have been employed by the university for more than two years will not be eligible for the rental apartments.

Rental applications may be downloaded and faxed to (831) 458-1937 or mailed to Faculty Housing Office, Hagar Court Community Room, Santa Cruz, CA 95064.

Specifics on for-sale and rental opportunities will be provided during informational sessions at the Women’s Center on these dates:

  • Tuesday, July 1, 3-5 p.m.
  • Thursday, July 3, 12:15-1:30 p.m.
  • Tuesday, July 8, 12:15-1:30 p.m.

Those planning to attend are asked to RSVP to Faculty Housing by e-mail or by calling (831) 458-3506.

Lottery to be held on July 15

All eligible employees interested in the for-sale program should e-mail Faculty Housing and ask to be placed on a waiting list for the for-sale program.

Due to anticipated high demand, a lottery will be held to select 50 current staff and 15 current non-Senate academics for placement on their respective waiting lists. After this lottery, only newly hired employees will be eligible to participate in the for-sale program.

The onetime lottery will be held on Tuesday, July 15, at Merrill Dining Hall from noon to 1:30 p.m. All applicants are encouraged to attend. Applications must be submitted by 5 p.m. on July 11 to be considered for the lottery.

Additional information on the housing policy is available online.
