Residence Halls

What immigration enforcement actions occur at UC schools?

We know that many members of the University of California community are concerned about immigration enforcement actions occurring across the country and have asked about the possibility of enforcement actions occurring on a UC campus. The Office of General Counsel at the UC Office of the President prepared the following to address these concerns: FAQs - Immigration & Customs Enforcement.

Can a student group reserve space for an event in any of the housing communities and/or dining areas?

Meeting Space availability for student groups varies during the academic year and summer months. As part of our mission, we exist to enhance the learning and living activities of our residents and use of these areas should reflect and reinforce this. Please see below for contact information related to specific areas.

Can I stay in the residence halls during breaks?

Residents in any residence hall may opt to stay over the Thanksgiving break without an additional fee. However, you may only stay in the residence halls during winter and/or spring break if you live in select buildings and agree to pay the fee associated with each break period. You should plan ahead if you think that you might need housing during these break periods and indicate this need on your housing application so that you can be placed in one of four eligible halls: Manzanita Village, San Nicolas Residence Hall, San Miguel Residence Hall or San Rafael Residence Hall.

Can I move in before/after my move-in date?

We cannot allow students to move in to their residence hall room before their assigned move-in date because the building will not be staffed and ready to accommodate residents. However, residents are welcome to move-in after their assigned move-in date/time as long as they are moved in before the start of classes. If you have any questions or concerns about Residence Hall move-in, please call Residence Hall Assignment Services at (805) 893-5513.
 

How do I switch rooms?

If you’re interested in changing rooms within your residence hall or moving into a new residence hall entirely, you will need to contact the Resident Director (RD) of your building. He or she will be able and happy to help you go over your room change options two weeks after the start of the quarter. After two weeks, you can get in contact with your RD by going to the front desk of your building.
