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 Thursday, September 6, 2018 at 11:59pm! Changes will not be permitted 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 may 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.
