Move-In: Students

Move-In Schedule
Please review the Move-In schedule at 

Before You Arrive
Students moving onto campus will have received instructions from their college or housing unit regarding Move-In times. Please contact your college or housing unit directly if you have not received this information.

Move-In Unloading
Each college or housing unit will have designated unloading and parking areas. Please follow the instructions from your college or housing unit for directions on where to unload and where you can park after unloading. Additionally, we ask that guests depart campus as soon as they help students unload their belongings. Long-term parking after unloading will not be available. If guests need to stay after unloading, you may want to download the ParkMobile app ahead of time so that you can quickly and easily find a place to park and pay on campus.

Move-In Check-In
Once you arrive on campus at your scheduled check-in time on Saturday, please make your way to the East Remote Parking Lot 104 to check-in (see map). It is important that you arrive at the time you selected as limiting the number of people on campus at any given time is essential to mitigation efforts. If you have not yet selected your check-in time, please do so immediately. Once you check in with residential staff, you will be asked to wait until proceeding closer to your residence hall or apartment

Parking options are extremely limited. We strongly discourage first- and second-year student campus residents from bringing a vehicle to campus that will stay past Move-In weekend. For additional information, please email or click here.

Campus Parking Permit Eligibility
Permit Eligibility status for residential students is determined by the number of units (90 units) completed by Fall 2020. This status remains in place and does not change throughout the academic year. On rare occasions, first- or second-year residential students may may be granted an exception by the Parking Review Panel. Review the appeal process for eligible exceptions and apply for an appeal.

Students with a disabiity who qualify for a disability-related parking accommodation are eligible.

Please keep the following in mind:

• There is no parking grace period; all vehicles must display a valid parking permit when parked at UCSC. Parking enforcement hours vary from lot to lot; some lots require permits daily, others on weekdays only. Check signs at parking lot entrances for permit requirements.

• If you have questions about parking permit eligibility email or call (831) 459-4543.
