Housing for Incoming Undergraduates

Parent Portal

August 15, 2016

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Summer is winding down, and soon your student will be starting a brand new chapter in their lives. Before that eventful day arrives, our office felt it was important to update you on some essential information.

Room Assignment Portal

Students can now access their Room Assignment through the MyRoomAssignment Portal which will provide them with a variety of information regarding Move-in. It will detail such information as:

  • Move-in date/time
  • Roommates and their contact information
  • Assigned Space (Res Hall or Apartment; Single, double, triple, etc.)
  • Dining Plan Options
  • Early Move-in Option

Visit the Room Assignment Website to log-in.

Dining Plan Option

One of the options that you will be able to select through the MyRoomAssignment Portal is the Dining Plan. Students will be able to log in and choose the plan that best suits their needs. Information was emailed regarding the different Dining Plan options. You must select a Dining Plan by August 22, 2016. All Dining Plans will become active on the first day of the Housing Contract, Saturday, September 17, 2016. Contract dining begins with lunch on Saturday, September 17.

You can also visit the Dining Plan website for further information.

Move-in Date and Time

Move-in weekend is September 17th and 18th. In order to alleviate traffic and congestion during Move-in, students were assigned a specific Move-in time and date. For those students attending a September orientation your Move-in time and date was adjusted by the Res Life office of their college. Please have your student review their MyRoomAssignment Portal for complete details. There is also a limited option to adjust your Move-in date to an earlier date. This will be based on a first-come first-serve basis and it will also be available through the MyRoomAssignment Portal. Feel free to contact your Residential Life Office directly for questions regarding Early Move-In information or any special circumstances.

Contact information for all Res Life Offices.

University Statement and Housing Charges

Your student’s bill will be posted to their TritonLink account on 9/2/16. If you would like to have your own username and password to view your student’s billing statement and receive updates when a new bill has posted, have your student go to Authorize a Payer to set you up with access via their TritonLink.

Grad Guard Renters Insurance

Grad Guard provides college residents with the ability to protect their belongings. Their coverage is exclusively built for students and campus residents with low deductibles and convenient monthly plans. For more information please visit, gradguard.com

Dining Hours for the Academic Year

Curious about when and where your student can use their dining dollars? Our Dining webpage has been updated to display standard academic hours. Daily, our campus has options available from 7am – 1am. Check out http://hdh.ucsd.edu/DiningMenus/ for more information.

Special Dietary Needs

Dining Services makes every attempt to accommodate students who require specialty diets. Individuals should contact our Registered Dietitian at HDHdietitian@ucsd.edu; she will then assist in coordinating with dining facilities so that your student gets assistance in identifying suitable menu choices.

Laundry Account

Student residents will be able to access and use the laundry facilities in their housing communities by depositing funds into their laundry account. Their laundry account is synced up to their school ID and will be automatically available to use from the moment they arrive on campus. Students and parents are able to make deposits to their laundry accounts online.

Visit the Online Card Office to make a deposit.

UC San Diego Email Account

Please remind your student to check their UC San Diego email account frequently. All correspondence from the University and its departments is typically emailed to their UC San Diego email account and not their personal email accounts.
