Live In Beautiful Apartments

Unlike any of the other colleges, Seventh College students who enter as a freshman have the opportunity to live in beautiful, modern apartments, complete with full kitchens, and many boast spectacular ocean views. These apartments, along with the College’s administrative offices, are clustered together near the RIMAC athletic complex, the Rady School of Management, the School of Global Policy and Strategy, and Eleanor Roosevelt College.

Make History

Seventh College is the newest of UC San Diego’s seven undergraduate colleges and welcomed its first cohort of students in Fall 2020. As a Seventh College student, you have the historic opportunity to help create the college culture you’ve always dreamed of and shape the future of Seventh College for years to come.
