Move Out 2024

As we approach the end of the academic year, it's time to help your student start planning for move-out from UC San Diego Housing. Here are some friendly reminders to help make the process as smooth as possible. 

  1. Start Planning Now: Have your student begin organizing and packing their belongings to avoid last-minute stress.
  2. Weekend/Home Trips: If they are heading home on weekends or for Memorial Day, consider taking non-essential items home to lighten the load during move-out.
  3. Move-Out Deadline: Per the housing contract (available here), students must vacate their premises by 6 p.m. on the last day of the contract term (June 15, 2024) or within 24 hours of their last final exam of Spring Quarter, whichever comes first.
  4. Traffic Advisory: Please note that due to Campus Commencement, you should plan for heavy traffic and traffic delays the weekend of June 14th.

An email was sent on May 18th to all parents/supporters on the HDH Parent & Supporter email list as well as those parents/supporters who have subscribed to emails from UC San Diego Parent & Family Programs. You can find a copy of the email here.

Congratulations to all our UC San Diego 2024 Graduates! 

New Incoming Students: Housing for 2024-25

Welcome to our new Triton Families! As you and your student prepare for Fall 2024, we have essential resources to help ensure a smooth transition into the on-campus housing experience. In addition, our UC San Diego Parent and Family Program have created a New Family Checklist to help you better support your student as they navigate the new incoming student process. 

While campus housing is optional, please note that to maintain your student's two-year housing guarantee as a new admit, they must reside on campus during their admit year and the subsequent academic year (2025-26). The housing guarantee cannot be deferred to a later date.

Here are actionable tips to ensure eligibility for the two-year housing guarantee:

  1. Confirm your acceptance to UC San Diego via the Applicant Portal by the University's deadline.
  2. Your student must set up their Single Sign-On account and activate their ucsd.edu email. Housing application invitations will only be sent after these steps are completed.
  3. Adhere to all housing deadlines to retain the housing guarantee. Missing a deadline forfeits the guarantee, but students can join the Fall Waitlist, if needed starting on July 9th. 
  4. Encourage your student to check their ucsd.edu email frequently for vital updates and deadlines.
  5. Familiarize yourself with housing processes and policies by reviewing the following websites:

Check out the 60+ Triton Cash vendors that accept Triton Cash both on and off campus. Students can also use their Triton Cash from the dining plan to do their laundry
