University Of California Paying $9,950 A Month For Janet Napolitano’s House

The University of California has leased an Oakland residence for incoming system president Janet Napolitano for $9,950 a month, officials said Monday.

Napolitano, the former U.S. secretary of Homeland Security and former governor of Arizona, will be provided the housing plus an annual $570,000 salary, $8,916 a year for car expenses and $142,500 for one-time relocation costs.

Napolitano is scheduled to begin her UC presidency Sept. 30, with her office at UC system headquarters in downtown Oakland.

The two-year lease for the 3,500-square-foot residence began Sept. 1. The monthly rent is $2,550 less than what UC recently has been paying for a Lafayette home for current President Mark G. Yudof.

The lease terms were revealed as the regents are scheduled to discuss Tuesday whether to take the first steps toward the renovation of a UC-owned mansion in Kensington that had been the residence of UC presidents until five years ago. It has been mainly unused since.
