Can I still live on campus in the fall?

Answer: 

Under normal operations, all incoming first year students are required to live on campus for two academic years. It is not yet possible to know now whether the COVID-19 pandemic will result in changes to operations in student housing and residence education in Academic Year 2020-2021. Consequently, we may not be able to meet all of the requests for on-campus housing that would allow students to fulfill UC Merced’s two-year residency requirement. However, we will keep our residence halls open unless we are required by public health authorities to close.
