Emergency Housing Fund

Are you an undergraduate student in need of financial housing support? The SAO is launching an Emergency Housing Funding Call for eligible undergraduate students for emergency housing initiatives. In collaboration with Slug Support, Financial Aid, and other University departments, the SAO seeks to support students experiencing financial housing challenges and insecurities. 

  • You may be eligible to receive financial support for housing-related issues if you are an undergraduate student experiencing any of the following below:  Inability to pay rent on time, regardless of living on- or off-campus
  • Need to repair housing damages with just cause
  • Cannot afford utility bill for the month

To open a case, please complete this general intake form here.  If you have general questions, please email the SAO Office at suasao@ucsc.edu. Our team will get back to you to set up a time to meet and discuss your current situation.

All meetings and communications are confidential. Our utmost value and priority is to maintain a welcoming and professional environment for students experiencing housing challenges in addition to ensuring students feel supported through peer to peer consultation. 


Thank you!
