University Hills offers a variety of choices for housing and recreation.
Irvine Campus Housing Authority (ICHA)
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 31 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 three apartment communities, two condominium associations, townhomes, paired homes, single family detached homes and a few custom homes. In all, University Hills has 360 apartments and 1066 for-sale homes on over 300 acres.
The housing program is governed by a Board of Directors. Each condominium association has its own Board of Directors, and there is a Homeowners’ Representative Board (HRB) advisory to the ICHA Board.
