The UC Irvine campus is about 4 miles from Orange County John Wayne Airport (SNA) so that's your best bet if you're flying in from out-of-town. UC Irvine has negotiated discounted rates with many hotels near the airport and UCI (in Costa Mesa, Irvine and Newport Beach). Several hotels provide a shuttle to/from the airport, and to/from UCI. Be sure to verify with the hotel whether shuttle service is offered and whether there is a fee for this service. There is a drop-off zone near 25 E. Peltason Dr., Irvine, CA, near the Engineering quad.

Unfortunately, there's no on-campus housing available to us this year. We'd like to suggest checking out the Atrium Hotel, adjacent to John Wayne Airport and just a few miles from the campus. They offer a free shuttle service to UCI, free breakfast, free WiFi, and free parking.

List of Places to stay

The following are accommodations located nearby the campus; you can find a full list of recommendations from a resource page on UCI website (rates and details subject to change at any time). Anyone visiting the UCI campus for any reason may take advantage of these offers. When making the reservation be sure to let the hotel know that you are visiting UCI and that you chose the hotel from the UCI hotel listing.

Note that UC Irvine is adjacent to the cities of Newport Beach and Costa Mesa, so many nearby hotels can be found in those cities also.
