Renters Workshop

The Renters Workshop is a free online training. Taking the workshop makes your off-campus housing search easier.

You learn your rights and responsibilities as a tenant and receive a Certificate of Completion to show landlords you are a knowledgeable prospective tenant.

The intended audience is the first time renter and those new to California. An "@ucsc.edu" email address (CruzID) is required to access the workshop; if you don't have a CruzID, the information from the workshop is available in the Resources for Renters on this website.
