December 2017

Hello Parents and Guardians,

Winter is Around the Corner

As students begin the final stretch of the fall quarter, and winter break is fast approaching, it is important that we provide you with some key information. Finals are finishing up and soon your student may be home for the holidays.

Winter Break

The University will be closed for Winter Break. Residence halls will close at noon on Sunday, 17 December and re-open at noon Saturday, 6 January. Apartments will remain open during that time. Dining Restaurant and Market facilities will be closing earlier than usual on Saturday, 16 December. All Markets and Dining Facilities will be closed from December 16 – January 6. Dining facilities will re–open with dinner in select restaurants on Saturday, 6 January. Certain market locations will be open on Saturday with limited hours. Please visit http://hdh.ucsd.edu/DiningHours for date and time details of each restaurant and market.

Triton Cash account can be used at these Price Center Eateries as well as many off-campus locations:

Winter quarter instruction begins Monday, 8 January.

Holiday Airport Shuttle for Students

The Holiday Airport Shuttle offers currently enrolled UC San Diego students’ transportation between Rupertus Lane and the San Diego International Airport (Terminals 1, 2 and Commuter) during Thanksgiving, winter and spring breaks. The cost is $5 each way and advance reservations are required. Limited space is available, so we recommend that you reserve your seat early.

The holiday shuttle schedule and more info can be found here, https://transportation.ucsd.edu/shuttles/airport.html.

Winter Quarter Billing Statement

The Winter Quarter Billing Statement was available on December 1 and must be paid no later than December 13, 2017. Please take a moment to review the billing statement at http://students.ucsd.edu before December 13 to be sure your student’s Fall Quarter charges are paid in full—students with “old debt” will be assessed an MDET HOLD which will prohibit any Aid/Loans and personal payments to pay Winter Charges. Winter Classes will be dropped if tuition is not paid by 12/13/17.
