All ARCH Communities

New for 2016-2017!

Promo: Communter Dining Plan

Dining Services is piloting a new Community Dining Plan for staff, faculty, and students without an undergraduate Housing contract (ARCH residents, this means you!)

For a minimum deposit of only $50, this new account will give you a 20% discount at the registers of ALL HDH restaurants, markets, and food trucks. That is 20% off EVERY time you make a purchase! The plan is easy to use, too—it’s linked to your campus ID card, so all you have to do is:

  1. Find something yummy to eat at over 19 Dining locations on campus.
  2. Tell the cashier to use your “Community Dining Plan”
  3. Swipe of the card, and… you’re done!

Parking Permits & Enforcements

New OMS and Mesa parking permits are in full effect as of February 1st, 2017. Permits will be enforced Monday through Friday between the hours of 10am - 6pm at both Mesa and OMS parking lots and structure. Parking is not enforced on the weekends. Temporary guest permits will only be issued by the office upon request. New permits can be picked up from the Residential Office. While you are here, pick up your ARCH CONNECT T-shirt while supplies last, 1 per resident. Contact your friendly Residential Service Office staff for all the details. In addition, UCSDPD performs security patrols 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Laundry Room Etiquette

Residential Service Office has received several complaints about laundry issues within our community. A reminder that the University is not responsible for laundry left in the machine or laundry rooms. Please be respectful of others’ property and always stay attentive to your wash/dry. Clean up your trash, don't be loud, the washers and dryers are for everyone, please share the folding area, don't force everyone to listen to your music, be polite and patient, and for crying out loud, please keep your clothes on.

Keep our Community Clean

Please ensure that all personal items (toys, bikes, skateboards, kiddy pools, playhouses, etc.) are removed from the grass/turf areas on your scheduled mow days. Tuesdays-North & West Mesa, Wednesdays-OMS & South Mesa, Thursdays-Central Mesa. Any items not removed pose dangerous safety hazards for both UCSD equipment operators and Mesa residents. All items outside of your patio on the grass/turf must be permanently removed including, all potted plants, unused pallets, patio furniture, etc. These items are blocking existing irrigation heads and are causing grass damage and the potential for flooding.

Please be aware that smoking is not permitted anywhere in the Community or on University property

Please keep the community smoke free. Visit for resources to quit smoking. Potential brush fire could have serious consequences to our community, especially in a drought state that we are in. Reminder that Campus and Community policies need to be followed for the safety of you and your neighbors.

General Safety Considerations

Travel in well lit, busy routes. Avoid walking or parking in shadowy areas. Have your keys in your hand as you approach your door, and remember to be alert to what and whom is around you. Be especially aware of your surroundings when you may seem more vulnerable to an attack, e.g., during periods of stress, when you are upset or sick, or if you have been drinking. Use discretion and caution when taking shortcuts through isolated areas of the campus. Know the location of campus emergency telephones on routes to and from campus destinations. Use the UCSD Safety Escort Program, 858.534.WALK, available daily from dusk to dawn.


Sweet! It’s Friday!

Coffee & Sweets every Friday @ the Rita Office (2nd Floor). Due to the lobby being under construction and our coffee bar being down, we are offering free coffee/tea/cocoa service and sweets every Friday in the Leasing office at the 2nd floor. Come visit us and enjoy some caffeine and sugary treats…get ‘em while they last!



Removal of Construction Fencing 7/17/17

In order to maintain the bike path that runs along the northern end of the Mesa Neighborhood, the green construction fencing will be removed and replaced with delineators and caution tape. It is important that you do not enter this area as it is still an active construction site with the installation of underground utilities and new asphalt. Please ensure your safety and the safety of your children and guests by adhering to all signage and guidelines when walking or biking through this area. Thank you.
