Dim uriNew As New Uri("http://Server_Name")
Dim oWebApp As SPWebApplication = SPWebApplication.Lookup(uriNew)

Using oSiteCollection As SPSite = oWebApp.Sites("http://Site_Name")
    oSiteCollection.Quota = SPWebService.ContentService.QuotaTemplates("Quota_Template_Name")
End Using
Uri uriNew = new Uri("http://Server_Name"); 
SPWebApplication oWebApp = SPWebApplication.Lookup(uriNew);

using(SPSite oSiteCollection = oWebApp.Sites["http://Site_Name"])
    oSiteCollection.Quota = SPWebService.ContentService.QuotaTemplates["Quota_Template_Name"]; 


Certain objects implement the IDisposable interface, and you must avoid retaining these objects in memory after they are no longer needed. For information about good coding practices, see Disposing Objects.
