Starting in Fall 2019, UC Merced is offering graduate students off-campus housing, which will be located in the Heritage Apartments in North Merced. More information about graduate student and family housing can be found at Housing & Residence Education.
For those who are looking for an alternative option, there is an Off-Campus Housing community database that provides information on various listings for housing and rentals in the Merced area. Information in this database is provided by either realtors or current owners/tenants who are looking to fill empty rooms. Students can register using their UCMnet ID. This is an especially helpful tool if you are looking for a room, or a roommate!
