Assigned Move-In Date/Time

When you are able to view your room assignment, students are each given an assigned move-in date and time designed to better regulate traffic flow and avoid crowded conditions on move-in weekend. Students who cannot make their assigned move-in date/time or decide to change this assigned date/time, will be able to select a new date/time from the available options when you view your room assignment. A confirmation email will be sent to the student’s UC San Diego email address with any changes made to their assigned move-in date/time. The deadline for any changes is Sunday, September 8, 2019 at 11:59pm! Changes will not be permitted after September 8, 2019 at 11:59PM unless you’ve contacted your Residential Life Office. Questions about move-in should be directed to your Residential Life Office. Welcome Letter/Email should be sent well before Labor Day weekend and will contain specific move-in details!

We are expecting over 11,000 students to arrive on campus along with their parents/guardians and families.  Campus will be impacted so please plan accordingly.  There will be a high volume of traffic and parking will be limited. Please note that your assigned move-in date/time is designed to help make your move-in a smoother process. Any changes to that assigned move-in date/time may result in longer waiting periods for parking, elevators and check-in.

Alternate or Early Move-In Options

We know many students are attending a September Orientation or you may just want the option to move-in early (subject to availability). Please check below to see what options are available to you and the associated costs. Any additional move-in charges will be assessed to your housing account in October. All students must be moved-in by Tuesday, September 24th at 12:00pm.

Students who check-in and receive keys (physical room key and/or keycard is encoded) have essentially "taken occupancy" of their space and based on the categories below will be charged accordingly. Should you have questions, please contact your Residential Life Office.

  • ONLY For Continuing Students Residing at Muir College:

    If you will be living at Muir this year, move-in is going to be a challenge because of the large construction project we are right next to!  This construction project has eliminated the two Muir parking lots that serviced Muir and now no longer exist!  You can help us to make the move-in process for you as smooth as possible by following these few tips! 

    Your move-in time allows you to check in within a 2-hour window, otherwise you will not be permitted to check in until the end of the day.

All move-ins must occur during the available times.

    We are encouraging you to pack light, and not to purchase large items before you arrive on campus.  Packing light will allow you to unload your car quickly, do our curbside check in, and settle into your living space as smoothly and as quickly as possible!  You can always buy the larger items you want, and what you want to share with your roommates/apartment-mates once you arrive!  Remember - there are no parking lots adjacent to Muir!
