Download Housing List Instructions

The Organization must submit a completed Housing List in the same Excel-based electronic format as initially provided by Conference Services. The Housing List is due two (2) weeks prior to the Conference. If the Organization fails to complete the Housing List as requested in the required format, a $500 labor charge will be incurred and billed on the final invoice. If this “Housing List” is not received two (2) weeks prior to the Conference Check-in date, the Organization will be charged an additional late processing fee of $50 per day.

Final revisions to the Housing List and guest count are required three (3) day prior to check-in date and no modifications will be accepted after this time. Requests for name changes or add-on participants (pending availability) must be submitted with final Housing List.

Information required to complete the excel spreadsheet include:

  • Conference Participant’s Full Name
  • Gender
  • Roommate preference
  • List of all Staff supervisors/Chaperones contact information and procedures
  • Physical limitations or dietary restrictions (See Attachment E), if any, of conference participant, which has previously been provided to the Conference Service Coordinator at least thirty (30) days prior to the conference.

Supervision, Rules & Safety

Throughout the entire stay on campus, the Organization shall provide adequate supervision of all conference participants in accordance with UC San Diego’s “Rules & Safety Regulations”. (Refer to Section 2 of your conference agreement.) UC San Diego will notify the Organization and require corrective action if the supervision of conference participant does not meet the expectations of the University.

Supervision requirements are as follows unless your organization receives prior approval from Conference Service Coordinator for other supervision ratios:

  • One (1) adult supervisor for every ten (10) youth participants.
  • Adult is defined as a person over the age of eighteen and youth is defined as person under the age of eighteen
  • Supervisor is defined as an employee of the Organization.
  • The Organization must submit a list of all staff supervisors and contact procedures along with the “Housing List”.

Your organization is responsible for requesting any boxed meal, snack pack orders or meal replacement orders 10 business days prior to your check-in date. Any new orders made less than 10 business days from event will incur a $50 late fee per order. We are unable to accept new orders less than (7) full business days prior to the pickup or delivery. Requests for changes made less than three (3) days from event cannot be accepted.

All boxed meals or snack packs are distributed from the the OceanView Kitchen to the conference leader/chaperone and not to individual conference participants. The Organization is responsible for handling the food in a safe and sanitary manner, including maintaining the appropriate temperature according to local and state health standards. The Organization must provide coolers to ensure the food remains at an appropriate temperature.

Box meals or snack packs that are not picked up within 24 hours will be donated.

Meal Cards

Each conference participant will be provided a meal card. Meal cards are coded for the Dining facility assigned.

Replacement Cards

Lost meal cards can be replaced at the Conference Desk for a $5.00/fee, paid at the time of replacement. Replacement fee applies upon failure to return a meal card at the time of check out.

VIP Meal Cards

VIP meal cards are used for providing extra meals for individuals that are not housed on campus and are not included in a meal plan. You can request VIP Meal Card(s) with your Conference Coordinator. Any meals provided with the VIP Meal card will be charged to the Conference Group’s final invoice.

Medical and Religious Diets

UC San Diego Dining works diligently to reasonably accommodate medically necessitated, religiously motivated, and lifestyle preference dietary needs. Our highly trained culinary team is well versed in the top food allergens and will do their best to ensure your dining experience here on campus is safe and nutritionally balanced.

Those with medically necessitated diets will need to complete Attachment E/Medical Form. The UC San Diego campus procedure requires any accommodation related to a medical diagnosis be supported with proper documentation from a physician. You can fax, e-mail or mail this form to your Conference Coordinator. Also, please communicate your (or your child’s) allergen needs to your Group Leader. This will ensure your (or your child’s) dietary needs are accommodated when meals are ordered through the catering department.

Once documentation has been received, reviewed, and approved, our Dining Department will work with the culinary team to accommodate your (or your child’s) dietary needs. You (or your child) will need to identify yourself to a Dining MANAGER when entering the eatery and state your particular food allergy/dietary needs. The manager will then notify the chef of your arrival to the Dining unit and to your special dietary needs so your food will be prepared according to our allergen accommodation process.

If you (or your child) prefer a religiously or lifestyle motivated dietary preference, please be aware that Dining offers a wide variety of selections daily that accommodate halal and kosher friendly diets, as well as gluten-friendly, vegan and vegetarian lifestyles. If you (or your child) require a CERTIFIED KOSHER or CERTIFIED HALAL MEAL, please be aware Dining can provide this service for a nominal fee. You will need to complete the section on Attachment E – Page 1 ONLY requiring notification of the certified kosher meal and associated costs. Documentation by a physician is NOT required.

Should you have any questions pertaining to our dietary procedures at UC San Diego, please contact UC San Diego directly by sending an email to and including the Conference name and date in the subject line.
