Moving Into San Joaquin Villages

San Joaquin Villages

We are excited to have you join us at UCSB San Joaquin Villages Move In Weekend, September 16 and 17, 2017! We have opened up this move in process for you prior to everyone else arriving because we recognize the impact and excitement of moving into a brand new building! You will not be billed for this first week of residency. We strongly suggest you avoid moving in from Friday September 22 - Sunday September 24 as your move in process will be severely impacted by the adjacent Santa Catalina Residence Hall move in, resulting in longer wait times in traffic and on-site during those dates. We understand circumstances sometimes dictate when you can move in, and we are excited to help you during this second weekend, but we want to make sure you have all the information to make the best decision on how you want to move into your new home!

  • Where do I check in?
    • Move-in for San Joaquin Academic Year contracts begins Saturday, September 16 and Sunday, September 17, 2017 from 9am-5pm. Parking for check-in area is located in the Sierra Madre main parking lot 65 adjacent to Storke Road.
    • If you arrive from September 18-21, you may check in at the Sierra Madre main office between 8am and 5pm, or by calling the Resident Assistant on call between 5pm and 8pm at 805-869-3899
    • Starting Friday Morning September 22 through Saturday September 24 we strongly discourage residents from attempting to move into San Joaquin. We will be adding 8000+ residents during this period and believe that your experience will be less than ideal. Your best option is to move in before the 22nd to have the best move in experience.
      • If September 22 through September 24 is the best fit for your schedule however, we will still be accepting residents. Please proceed to the location on the map and you will be directed to where to park your car and where to check-in.
