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.

Move-In Check-In
Your college or housing unit will give you instructions on where to check in for Move-In. The maps below indicate the check-in areas for the designated Move-In dates. Once you check in with residential staff, you may 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 2019. 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.

Disabled students that 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. 

"No Pet" Policy
UCSC has a strictly enforced “No Pet” policy (with the exception service animals as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act). If you enter UCSC with a pet (non-service animal) you will be asked to remove it from campus and will not be allowed to keep your pet in your vehicle pursuant to California law (CA Penal Code 597.7). Check local listings for facilities equipped to board pets.
