Prior to leaving every resident must...

Rooms must be cleaned thoroughly. This includes dusting and vacuuming (plan ahead as vacuums are one of the hardest items to get during closing week). Any excessive cleaning will result in charges to your BARC. Please don’t leave a mess for your custodian to clean up — they have worked hard for you all year! Please refer to our detailed cleaning checklist.

Return all room furniture to the location it was in at check-in. Refer to Room Diagrams below for more detailed information. If you need assistance, please contact your Resident Director or Assistant Resident Director.

Assess damages and reach a written agreement with roommate(s). If there are any damages or cleaning charges expected to be charged to the room that are not all residents’ responsibility, fill out a Damage/Cleaning Charge Agreement (available from your RA) and return it when you check out. Any charges not noted on this form will be the responsibility of all residents of the room equally and will be charged to all residents BARC accounts. We strongly suggest you exchange summer contact information with your roommates to communicate about charges to BARC. It is also helpful for maintenance staff when you report damages ahead of time. Please submit Work Order Requests online or at your Front Desk.

Remove bike and all personal belongings. Take your possessions and belongings when you leave to avoid charges. If you’d like to donate your bike or other items, please see the information regarding Project GIVE. For bikes remaining on campus, a pink tag will be attached to the front wheel and the rack in late June. In early July, any remaining bikes with a pink tag on the racks will be considered abandoned and will be impounded. If you believe your bike has been impounded, please call the CSO Office at 805-893-5293 to confirm. The cost to retrieve your bike from impound is $24.00 if registered and an additional $10 registration fee if it has not been previously registered. The CSO office will store bikes for the summer. Call 805-893-3928 for more information.

Return keys. All keys must be returned in your move-out envelope by 10 a.m. on Saturday, June 15. An unreturned bedroom key will result in a $50 rekey fee.

Graduating or Working Commencement? The approved late move-out request form is now available. The deadline to submit a request is May 31 at noon if you are graduating or working on campus for commencement weekend. The Resident Director must approve any exceptions in advance.

A few things to note...

  • Policy Violations that occur at the end of the Quarter will be addressed. 
  • Because final exams occur during check out, please be considerate and keep the noise level low. Remember 24-hour quiet hours are in effect throughout study week and finals. 
  • If necessary, University Hearings will be held in the summer, regardless of a student’s place of residence next year (on- or off-campus). Any policy violations occurring at the end of the year will be reviewed and managed by the Housing, Dining & Auxiliary Enterprises' Student Conduct Team
  • If behavioral problems occur, students may be asked to check out immediately following their last final. Once you have checked out, you are not permitted back into the building. Refer to the Student Conduct page for more information. 
  • Your room will have a final inspection after you leave to determine whether there are damages or cleaning concerns for which you will be charged. These will be noted on the Room Condition Report by a staff member. The actual amount of any bill is not determined until all residents have vacated the residence halls and professional Maintenance Staff have performed the final inspection.
  • Make sure to update your permanent address in GOLD.
  • If you rented a refrigerator from Collegiate Concepts, it will be picked up starting on June 15. UCSB is not involved in this rental process, so if you have any questions please contact Collegiate Concepts

Important Information & Resources

  • UCSB Conference & Hospitality Services offers June Temporary Housing as a basic accommodation option to help bridge the period of time between the end of residence hall or apartment contracts and the period when the student’s summer housing becomes available.
  • This program is available only to UCSB students with valid PERM numbers
  • Meals are not included
  • Rooms are booked on a first come, first served basis
  • For more information and to register, visit Conference & Hospitality Services June Temporary Housing web page.
  • Start packing early: Pack coats, shoes, or items that you don’t use often and take them home early, if possible. This will make it much less stressful to pack up your car in June
  • If family members come visit you, send things home early with them
  • We support waste reduction, reuse & recycling. Here are some tips to achieving a zero waste move out 
    • Donate what you can. IV GIVE collects unwanted items from UCSB/IV residents, including clothing, furniture, electronics, household items, toiletries, books, and nonperishable foods. Drop-off containers are located at the UCSB Residence Halls, UCSB Apartments, and Embarcadero Hall in early June. The GIVE Sale occurs a few weeks after move out at Embarcadero Hall. Proceeds benefit IV non-profits and projects.
    • Remove recyclables early. Recycle bins tend to fill up at the end of the quarter as everyone prepares to move out. Clear out old notebooks, extra papers, and accumulated bottles and cans early to prevent the overflow. This also helps to reduce clutter.
    • Swap items with friends. Check in with your friends and neighbors to see if anyone has interest in that old sweater that you only wore once this winter, textbooks for next year’s classes, or even one of your spare water bottles. Exchange clothing, furniture, and books on Facebook as well. 
    • Pack with reusable or recyclable materials. Use reusable bins and bags, such as laundry baskets, to pack your belongings. Avoid using plastic trash bags. Use recycled boxes if needed ─ check a local grocery store, liquor store, or your workplace. Avoid using tape. Fold the flaps of your cardboard boxes so they will not require tape. Instead of bubble wrap, try household towels or newspaper for fragile items. Make sure to reuse or recycle all of your packaging later. 
    • Properly dispose of your items. Large furniture items should not be discarded on the sidewalks. Marborg conducts large-item pickups in Isla Vista during the last two weeks of June.
    • E-waste can be dropped off at the residence halls, the library, and more.
    • Compost any food waste that you clean out of the fridge.

Follow the above tips and together we can make a difference in supporting UCSB on its way to becoming a sustainable community!

  • The campus will experience significant traffic disruptions due to Commencement ceremonies and move-outs on Friday and Saturday. We highly recommend moving out after your last final, and before Saturday to avoid the congestion on campus.
  • Unless you are loading at a curb with UCSB staff members present, you are required to have a valid parking permit during move out or you run the risk of getting a citation. Transportation & Parking Services has created a special one-hour Move Out Parking Permit that is available for purchase from the parking machines in lots 4, 5, 6, and 9. Cost is $3. 
  • Anacapa, Santa Rosa, Santa Cruz, San Miguel, and San Nicolas: Parking Lots 4 and 9 are designated for students to use to move-out. Long-term (longer than one hour) parking is available in Lots 16, 18, and 22. 
  • Manzanita and San Rafael Residents: Pull vehicle up to the loading zone once belongings are ready to be loaded. Honor the 30-minute loading zone time limit. Lot 23 will be available for limited move-out parking during Move-Out weekend. On Saturday and Sunday, Lot 23 will be closed for Commencement. Please park in Lot 22, 27 or 30 at that time.
  • Santa Catalina Residents: Curbside loading along El Colegio Rd will be available Wednesday through Friday from 7am to 7pm and Saturday from 7am to Noon. Move out permits are available for purchase from the parking machine in lot 60.
  • During Commencement ceremonies, vehicles attempting to gain access to Lots 22, 23, 24, 27, SRB, San Rafael, and Manzanita will be redirected to Lot 30 until Commencement traffic has exited Lots 22 and 23.
