UCHA Welcomes You


UCHA is not just housing, it is an amazing opportunity to connect with a huge cross section of the academic community, from across disciplines to around the world.  Applying is your first step in what may become the most enriching time of your life.

You can request to move in for any academic quarter that will begin within the next 12 months. 

Due to COVID-19, we still have spaces available RIGHT NOW!

Please send ONLY ONE application per person.

Applications must be manually signed, then email to us at ADMISSIONS@UCHA.COOP:

Your application is valid for only one academic year (Fall through Summer). If you don't want admission for the quarter you initially applied for, you may request (by email) for your application to be held for another quarter’s admission. If you have not moved in by Summer, you would have to re-apply for admission to the next academic year.
