Move-In - Fall 2024

  • When is Move-In?

    Fall 2024 Move-In will occur Wednesday, August 21 and Thursday, August 22, from 8 AM to 5 PM.  Students may arrive on whichever day works best for them.  If a student cannot make it during our Move-In days and hours they may arrive any of the Move-In days after 5 PM or anytime Friday August 23 – Sunday August 25.  

  • Where do you recommend purchasing a linen set from?

    University Housing is happy to partner with SWAKU, who offers linens that can be shipped directly to our mail room prior to move in.  Details will be emailed to you this Summer.

  • What should I bring with me to live with University Housing?

    We have a list of What to Bring (PDF) item suggestions for you. Make sure you only bring enough for the Fall semester. You can always buy more items later.

  • Can I bring a mini fridge or microwave?

    No, you cannot bring your own mini-fridge or microwave. University Housing will be providing a Micro-Chill (mini fridge/microwave combo) in every room with the exception of University Village and Konkow. The Micro-Chill will be provided at no additional cost.

  • On move-in day, where will I go to check in?

    It depends on your community!  

    Students assigned to Shasta, Lassen, Éstom Jámani, Esken, Mechoopda, or Konkow will park in a G parking lot (General Parking Stadium lot is closest) when they arrive.  There will be a tent with Move-In Carts available for you to borrow to assist you with loading your belongings in the -General Stadium Parking lot, then proceed at the front desk of your building to check in.  Cars may park in the General Parking Stadium Lot stalls on your assigned move in day from AM – PM.  All vehicles must be removed by PM.  Please only bring one vehicle that you intend to park in this lot per student!

    Any student who has purchased a Residential Parking Permit (B Lot Permit) should park the vehicle they registered with that permit in a B Lot Parking area ONLY.  These are the only areas that cards may be parked overnight.

    Students assigned to University Village should proceed to University Village ( 1206 West Sacramento Ave) and enter through the gate.  Cars may temporarily park at University Village without purchasing a parking permit during Move In.  Any vehicles left overnight must have purchased a University Village semester Parking Permit. Once parked please proceed to the University Village desk located in the South Community Building (see UV map (PDF)) to check in

  • How many people can I bring to help move me in?

    On move-in day you can bring support people who can physically assist you in moving your belongs into your community. 

  • Can I bring my pets to move-in?

    We ask that you please leave your pets at home. It can get incredibly hot and we want to make sure everyone has a pleasant experience without having to worry about Fido!

  • Do I need to bring anything if I'm under 18?

    No, but we advise you to visit the WellCat Health Center's website and download the forms needed for minors.
