Students across the country are having trouble finding housing for the fall semester as their colleges return to in-person classes,in areas with tight housing markets. Before the pandemic, the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) guaranteed housing for first- and second-year students but has since changed its housing policy to a lottery system. Students who thought they were covered are now scrambling to find housing, a challenge particularly difficult for students with low-incomes. Now, UCSD is working with Marriott to offer students housing options, along with other services like the Basic Needs Emergency Grant, which is available to students without sufficient funds for food or housing.
