San Clemente Villages: Fall 2020 Move In



As you are aware, the UCSB COVID-19 Response Team is in the process of coordinating testing appointment information for new residents. If you have not already received an email from them with the link to schedule an appointment, you will be receiving one shortly. 

Please remember that you MUST sign up for an appointment to either:

  • Be tested for COVID upon arrival
  • OR submit verification of a negative COVID test result (test taken within 7 days of arrival)
    • These residents will receive a waiver from the Covid-19 Response Team at the testing site.  
  • Testing Location: The COVID testing center is located at the San Joaquin Villages, in the Calaveras Community Center.
  • We suggest parking in Lot 60. From Lot 60, you will utilize the crosswalk on Storke Road to arrive at San Joaquin Villages. Please use the MAP provided to locate the Calaveras Community Center and other relevant locations.
