Winter Break: Campus Housing Open

Winter break is less than a month away! On-campus housing communities will remain open during this time (Dec. 11 through Jan. 7). Once you have determined your plans for winter break, please inform us through the Housing Portal. After logging in, go to the “2022-23 Move-In Information and Processes” folder, then click on the “2022 Winter Break Form” link. This will be available through Jan. 4, 2023.

Campus offices may have limited hours or close during the official campus closure (Dec. 23 – Jan. 2). Please plan accordingly if you are staying on campus and/or need services. Updated dining hours and availability during winter break are available on the HDH Dining page.

Winter Quarter 2023 Move-In Information

Current Residents: If you leave campus for winter break, campus-operated housing protocols will follow established transition periods at the start of Winter Quarter. Before returning to campus, campus residents are required to have a negative rapid antigen test result. Upon move-in, campus residents will complete a PCR test on Day 1 and Day 5, mask in congregate areas, and are not permitted guests. Once a negative test on Day 5 is confirmed, masks can be removed and guests can visit suites and rooms.

Newly Contracted Students: Winter Quarter move-in begins January 7, 2023.  There are no early move-in options available. You will receive move-in instructions and be able to self-select your arrival to campus. 

  • There will be no move-ins after 4:00pm.  Plan accordingly if you are setting up your flights to San Diego. 
  • Available carts may be limited.  Check with your Residence Life Office for more information.
  • Students will be required to have a COVID test to pick up keys at move-in through official UCSD COVID testing:
    • Continuing students will use the vending machine and will be required to share a screenshot of the last vial scanned and returned.
    • ALL incoming students will need to schedule a COVID provider test (not through the vending machines). 
  • Student move-in will be limited to two helpers during move-in. Additional requirements (masking, etc.) will be updated before the January move-in date.

Check back frequently for updated information! We are looking forward to seeing you!

Fall Quarter 2022 Move-Out Information

All of our housing facilities are open during winter break, December 11 - January 7.  There is no need to move-out your personal items during winter break if you decide to head home, take vacation, visit friends, etc. during this time.

  • If you remain on campus during winter break, be aware of your surroundings and keep in mind there are fewer students on campus. Keep your door locked and have your keys with you at all times. 
  • If/when you do leave campus, make sure you have removed all your trash and turned off power strips and lights. Be sure all windows are closed and doors are locked.  Keep your PIN code (if needed for e-locks) safe to use upon your return (don’t forget it)!  If you are in a room where there is a vacancy, please make sure you are living on just on one-side of the room as a new resident could arrive.

If you have been approved a contract termination, please follow all instructions provided and adhere to all dates.  There will be no contract termination approvals nor approvals for move-out between December 20 and January 2.  Please plan appropriately.

Students/parents/guardians/friends should plan ahead of time as the contract ends June 17, 2023 at 6:00PM and students will be required to be moved out by that date and time. There will be limited exceptions (if any), to the move-out date and time so please start planning now.
