The Housing Security Commission aims to educate students on the meaning of housing insecurity and destigmatize the narrative around it for students at UCI. It’s difficult to ask students to perform at the highest academic standard possible when they continue to go unhoused on a day-to-day basis. Housing should be accessible to everyone – no student should ever have to worry about whether they’ll have a roof over their heads the next day. In working with the UCI Basic Needs Center and other campus partners, it’s the role of the Housing Security Commission to make sure resources are readily available for our housing-insecure Anteaters through collective advocacy, informational workshops, policy initiatives, and more.

The Housing Security Commission will also be responsible for advising the President on campus matters related to housing insecurity and regularly interfacing with UCI Housing and the American Campus Communities. Additionally, alongside the Financial Wellness and Food Security Commissions, the Housing Security Commission will be the primary ASUCI liaison to the Basic Needs Center.
