Be Part of a Community

Living with your fellow classmates is one of the best parts of studying in the U.S. All first year University Bridge students live in the same community, and many students choose to stay for their second year. We believe this creates an atmosphere where you not only make friends, but support one another through a common goal. Our advisors stay close by, so we are always there if you need anything.

More Than Just Accommodations

There are many social events included with your housing: from meals out to trips to watch the NBA, from go-karting to cooking lessons, you can always keep busy. Your personal advisor is there to support you with anything you need, whether it is a trip to the doctor’s office, or help buying a car – we’ll always be there to help. Of course, academics always come first but UBridge is here to guide you on all aspects of your international education journey.

Housing Details

Our apartments at UBridge@IVC have many high-end facilities: swimming pool, BBQ area, hot tub, and gym. Each student will also receive a membership with access to several pools, tennis courts, a fishing lake and boating.


Each apartment has one or two bedrooms, one or two bathrooms, a fully fitted kitchen with all amenities, and a living/dining area. You will share a twin room with another UBridge student. Please note that single rooms may be available on request for a fee.


We provide a bed, desk, and closet in your room, and each apartment has a TV, internet, cable TV, and a washer/dryer on site. Students can add their own personality to the apartments by putting up their favorite posters or pictures from home.

Local Area

The apartments at UBridge@IVC are located across the street from school, and are just minutes away from Irvine Spectrum, the 405 Freeway and the 5 Freeway. Living here, our students will have access to remarkable recreational amenities which include 30-acres of lakes, recreational parks, 22 pools, bike trails, walking trails, tennis courts, and more.


Living in Irvine offers you an urban-suburban mix with plenty of things to do: natural beauty, small-city living, great food, and arts/entertainment. You can go shopping at Irvine Spectrum Center which features more than 120 stores along with a three-story outdoor Ferris wheel. For a change of pace, you can relax by cycling along 282 miles of on-road bicycle lanes and 44.5 miles of mountain bike trails. An amazing environment to pursue your studies!
