Welcome to the Faculty and Staff Housing at UCI
Irvine Campus Housing Authority (ICHA) was created by the Regents of the University of California to develop and maintain University Hills, the for-sale and rental housing community on the campus of The University of California, Irvine (UCI). In the 35 years of its existence, University Hills has become an innovative model for other university employee housing programs.
University Hills was created as an academic community in residence to provide affordable housing to eligible full-time employees. It is within walking distance of Irvine shopping, restaurants and entertainment, as well as campus academic and athletic activities and neighborhood recreational amenities. The community has four apartment communities, two condominium associations, townhomes, paired homes, single family detached homes and a few custom homes.
