Moving Into The Residence Halls
Moving into the residence halls is an exciting time for both students and Student Housing. The process for moving into the halls differs depending on which quarter students plan to move in; please refer to each section below for general information for each quarter.
All students may begin to prepare to move into the residence halls by reviewing the following information:
- Read the Guide to Residence Hall Life
- Decide what to bring (and what not to bring), and coordinate with your roommate(s)
- Preparing and registering your computer
- Review Bicycle Policies on the UC Davis TAPS Bicycle Program webpage
Note: on the 1st of the month of a given quarter's move-in weekend (for example, September 1 for fall quarter), this page will automatically update with information specific to that quarter's move-in process.
Most students who live in the residence halls move in late September in time for fall quarter. Because of the large amount of students moving in, it takes special coordination and preparation on both the students' and university's parts. To facilitate that, Student Housing prepares specific information for each year's fall quarter move-in weekend.
Information for fall quarter move-in is posted on this webpage in early September. Information includes move-in dates, contract updates and requirements, fee payment information, computer registration information, move-in campus maps and directions, and a checklist of things to prepare.
Students who intend to move in after the official fall quarter move-in days should contact Student Housing directly (530-752-2033 or email@example.com) to obtain specific information for moving in.
Religious Holiday Conflicts
Those whose check-in day conflicts with the observance of religious holidays should contact the Student Housing office at 530-752-2033 to arrange alternative move-in accommodations. Note: the UC policy regarding religious holidays that conflict with residence hall move-in days is available on the publications webpage, under "General Policies".
Students who have additional questions may contact Student Housing (530-752-2033 or firstname.lastname@example.org).
Student Housing prepared these checklists to help students (and parents) prepare for the move into the residence halls.
Winter and Spring Quarter
Students who anticipate moving into the residence halls for winter or spring quarter should contact Student Housing directly (530-752-2033 or email@example.com) to obtain specific information for moving in.
See Checklists under Fall Quarter, above, to begin planning for move-in. Note: not all checklist items may apply to winter or spring quarter move-in.
Students who are planning on living in the residence halls during Summer Session I or II should contact Conference Housing (530-752-8000 or firstname.lastname@example.org) for additional information.
