UCSC is a membership organization, and as such, everyone must be on track for membership. 

Below are some definitions of our most common of account types:

Members:  These individuals have been offered a full membership and have paid their Membership Fee. They may “rent out” their membership for up to two consecutive years without penalty, after which they must either renounce their membership or renew by registering for the season. Since our membership is capped at 450 families, the number of full memberships available in any given year depends on how many current members resign.

Renters: These individuals are offered the slots that Members have decided to rent out for the season. Therefore, the number of Renters in any given season varies, depending on how many Members rent out their slot.

Waitlist: These individuals are awaiting a rental offer. The typical wait for a rental offer at this time is several seasons.

Seasonal House Guest (SHG): This is an individual who does not live with the Member but who has been added to the Member’s account for the season. Live-in nannies are also categorized as SHG. Seasonal House Guests must be approved by the Board and are admitted as space allows.

Alumni: Available only to Members in good standing age 60 and over who have been active for 15 years, or age 50 and over who have been active for 20 years, as determined by UCSC records. Visits for alumni are limited to 10 per season, with 5 guest passes.
