Post Rentals

Starting September 2020, Places4Students is UCSC’s new rental listing service for the UCSC community. We invite landlords and property managers who have listed their rentals with us before to create new listings on Places4Students. New landlords are also welcomed.

Places4Students specializes in providing the highest quality listing service possible.

Use to advertise your rental housing to UCSC students, staff, and faculty. This free online listing service offers many benefits to property owners and managers:

  • Descriptive listings with photos, amenity icons, floor plans and more!
  • Automated mapping to show where your rental is from campus
  • Monitor how many times your rental listing has been viewed
  • User-friendly system to manage your rental listing(s), 24/7
  • Your rental information is stored for future access and renewals
  • Live customer support (toll-free) or ‘Help’ link available online

Listing requests are reviewed and processed by Places4Students customer service representatives hourly during business hours, and once daily during weekends and holidays.

If you need assistance, don’t hesitate to contact the Places4Students customer support team:
