  • Flu Clinic at Tang
  • Warning about Subleasing in University Village

  • Subleasing in University Village

    Subleasing is renting to unauthorized tenants not listed on your rental agreement as confirmed family members. Subleasing is prohibited by your rental agreement and is a serious violation which could result in a 3-day notice to quit. Please note that your rental agreement allows for prior approval by Cal Housing, to eligible families, only during summer months.

    Unauthorized subleasing can cause problems for neighbors, maintenance, and the overall peace and quiet of the community. Please understand the risk involved, in being fully responsible for the conduct of your subtenants, while violating your rental agreement with the University. Tenants subleasing without authority will be served with a termination notice which will affect their University affiliation or student status, and lose their housing rights.

    If you have questions about the sublease policy, please contact Cal Housing at, or call (510) 642-4019.

  • Academic Center Update (10/24/14)

  • On Friday, Oct 24th: The main area of the Academic Center will be closed to users from 5pm - 10pm (as it is reserved for an event). Regular users are still welcome to use the East Room facilities.

    Thank you!


  • Minors in the Academic Center and Study Rooms

  • In University Village Student-Family Housing, we love children!
    There are many programs, recreational areas, and events just for our kids here in University Village. But please remember, our academic areas are not for our minor residents.

    Children under the age of 18 are not permitted in the East Village or West Village Study Rooms, or in the Village Academic Center. This is both for their safety, as there is no staff supervision, and to maintain an atmosphere conducive to our academic purpose. As it is also the written policy of our department, this rule cannot be "waived" by a parent giving their child permission to use the centers. If you have any questions regarding this or other Academic Program policies, please contact


  • Safety Reminder

  • We recommend you to:
      - Lock your doors at all times. Use the dead bolt lock on your entrance door.
      - Shut and secure windows when you're not home or sleeping
      - Do not leave valuables in your car
      - Lock and roll up your car windows


  • Protect your belongings left outside of your apartment

  • Residents have reported items being stolen from just outside of their apartment doors. These items include shoes, mail packages, bikes, etc. Please protect your belongings by not leaving items outside of your apartments. If needed, contact your mail carriers and give instructions not to leave packages outside.

    If you witness any suspicious activities, call UCPD immedately. (911 from your land line, and 642-333 from your cell phone)

      • Discuss the 3 types of skills
      • Identify your transferrable skills
      • Learn how to discuss your strengths and accomplishments

  • Meet and greet the new Albany City Council member

  • I am Peggy McQuaid and I have been appointed to the Albany City Council effective December 8, 2014.

    I am hosting a "meet and greet" on Monday, October 27 to discuss with Albany residents their interests and concerns. This is an opportunity for me to meet and share ideas with residents and for them to learn about me and my goals as an incoming City Council member You are invited to this event which will be held in the Edith Stone room at the Albany Community Center from 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. Please feel free to share this invitation with others in Albany.

    During this election season, there were only 3 candidates for 3 City Council seats which allowed the current City Council to cancel the election and appoint the 3 candidates. Rochelle Nason and I will serve for 4 years and Nick Pilch will have a 2 year term. I didn’t have the opportunity to meet with residents and hear their ideas and questions during a traditional campaign. It is my hope this event will enable us to begin a dialog on issues that are important in Albany.

    If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me at
