Position Summary
Affordable student housing is an important component of the University's ability to offer high-quality education and residential life experience. Campus housing is also important in addressing the University's sustainability goals and long-range enrollment planning targets. Enrollment growth over the last decade has made it challenging for the University to provide enough affordable student housing to meet student demand. The high price of housing in California makes the University's faculty and staff recruitment and retention efforts challenging. To help facilitate this effort, the University has prioritized increasing the available faculty and staff housing units. Under the general direction of the Director of Capital Planning, the Housing Project and Policy Analyst provides analytical support on a variety of policies, projects, programs, and issues related to housing and related support needs. This position serves as UC Finance Division's primary subject matter expert for student, faculty, and staff housing; collects relevant data and information; participates in policy and program planning and development; encourages systemwide leadership and coordination; develops and promotes housing policies; and convenes systemwide work groups. Additionally, this provides support for housing-related special ad hoc assignments, including but not limited to, dining, basic needs, capital planning, real estate services, and financial aid. This is a hybrid work position, with current UCOP expectations to work in Oakland on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Work from home within the State of California is an option for Mondays, Thursdays, and Fridays.
