Housing Insecurity Survey – Please Support Undergraduate Research Apprentices

We are a graduate and undergraduate student research team at UC San Diego that is conducting research on housing insecurity and student success. As a student attending UC San Diego, you are being asked to participate in an online survey that has been designed to understand the ways in which housing impacts student health, sense of self and academic achievement. If you choose to participate in this survey, please click on the link below. Participation is anonymous and will last approximately 10 minutes. Before you begin the survey, you will read a brief consent form. Survey questions will include questions around rental costs, location of off-campus housing, financial burdens, mental health, faculty awareness and grades. 

While there is no direct benefit to you for participating in this study, the research may help the investigators better understand the ways in which housing insecurity impacts students in San Diego: information that we are planning to share with students, faculty and administrators at our school. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Stacey Livingstone at sbliving@ucsd.edu or at 619-417-4350.

Thank you!
