Medical centers and auxiliary enterprises, such as housing and dining services, accounted for 30 percent.

Libraries and other academic support services, such as instructional technology, student services, administration and general campus (but not medical center) operation and maintenance of plant, accounted for 15 percent of total expenditures.

UC students received total grant and scholarship aid of almost $1.4 billion in 2009-10. This includes $544 million paid directly to students, which is the amount shown in the chart above. In addition, UC students received $856 million in grants and scholarships in 2009-10 to help pay their tuition and fees, campus housing, books and other campus charges. These dollars are not included in the chart above because auditing rules do not treat them as direct expenditures.
