One of the most memorable days of your college career is the first time you move into the residence halls. We are looking forward to you joining us! Please visit this page often, as the information below is subject to change. Move-In information will be posted and updated here throughout the summer. Don’t forget to check your UCSB email address frequently so you don’t miss important details or updates.
Nearly all students will be moving into their new home with you during move-in. To have a smooth, safe, and orderly move-in experience, please arrive during your selected move-in day and time and not before. Each building has its dates and times during which move-in is permitted. You can see the available times for your building by selecting the link in your assignment email, which will be sent out in early September. Since the time slots for Thursday and Friday are available on a limited, first-come, first-served basis, we anticipate a more laid-back move-in experience on these days. The weekend will be busier, with more traffic and congestion throughout campus.* If you need to change your time or have not selected a time, please visit the link in your assignment email to view available slots. If you arrive early, consider shopping at nearby stores or stopping at a restaurant. 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.
*Due to construction activity on Hwy 101 through Ventura County into Santa Barbara County and on Hwy 217, travel with caution and expect delays. Please check Caltrans QuickMap for real-time traffic conditions at https://quickmap.dot.ca.gov/
