Note: Rental Cost statistics are calculated based on advertised listings through the UCSC Community Rentals Office. Figures include both furnished and unfurnished rentals. Advertised rates may include allowing 2 or 3 people per room, cost of utilities and/or other amenities. Locations vary, with the majority being in Santa Cruz. For statistical purposes, some zero rent or excessively priced listings omitted from calculations.
