Fall 2021 Move-in

All on campus residents with an active housing contract for the 2021-22 academic year will have the ability to select their testing and move-in date and time from available time slots. Our main move-in process will take place from September 11th to September 21st. Students will select from available times between 8:30am and 3:30pm. Students will select their testing and move-in date and time through their MyRoomAssignment portal which will open in staged phases beginning August 24th. Welcome Letters will be sent via email to your UC San Diego email account from your Residence Housing Community. All students will need to have selected their testing and move-in date and time by the deadline date of Thursday, September 2nd at 11:59PM (PST). You can continue to adjust your testing and move-in date and time until the deadline date. Students that do not have a time will be assigned one from the remaining available time slots.

There will be an opportunity to select testing and move-in date and time for later arrivals, September 22nd through September 24th. Any student that is not able to arrive by September 24th, will need to connect with their Residence Life Office to discuss late arrival options after September 25th.

If you miss your selected testing and move-in date and time, you will need to arrange your housing accommodations (at your expense) for that night and communicate with your Residence Life Office for arrival the next day. There will be no afterhours move-ins allowed as all students must receive a COVID-19 test before getting keys and moving into their space.

Information specific to your move-in process will be included in your testing and move-in date and time confirmation email. You should continue to monitor the Return To Learn site and the HDH COVID-19 FAQ page for any updates.

Campus Policies/Procedures for Move-in

Students will need to setup their MyChart and download the app required for COVID testing.

Plan to arrive in one vehicle with no more than two members of your moving party in order to allow for physical distancing. You and your moving party will need to be masked throughout the move-in process. Moving party members will have 20 minutes to help their student unload their belongings from their vehicle and move into their room. After 20 minutes, the moving party can either leave or meet their student outside of the building. Moving carts will be available for use.

Your Qwik Pass will be required for move-in along with a valid photo ID (campus, driver’s license or passport). Your Qwik Pass is part of the MyRoomAssignment process and will be available beginning September 6, 2021.

At the testing and check-in location, the student is the only person who can participate in the process.

Upon arrival in the fall, residents agree to a Phase I and Phase II protocol. Phase I requires an in-person COVID test prior to move-in, with additional tests on Day 5 and 10 after moving in. During this Phase, masking in residential units (suites and apartments) is required at all times (except in one’s personal bedroom or while in the shower). All undergraduate residential units will move to Phase II on the same date, (to be announced after all testing requirements are completed, results are available and conditions on campus and in San Diego indicate this can be done safely.)

Additional Move-in Instructions: By Housing Community

Each Residential Housing Community may post additional move-in instructions to help facilitate the process. These are specific move-in instructions providing maps, directions and general community arrival info. We expect to post these additional pieces as we receive them but no later than August 31st. As we continue to monitor the pandemic, information is subject to change due to evolving health guidelines.
