Returning Student Move-In Day

Aug. 15 & 16 - Pre-registration is required

University Housing looks forward to welcoming new and returning students for Fall 2020. Based on state and federal guidelines, the residence hall move-in plans intend to promote social distancing and better ensure the safety of the California University family and friends. We appreciate your cooperation during these unprecedented times. Students/families must pre-register for a move-in time slot and should plan to arrive on campus based on that timeframe. Students move in on the designated days for your building. There are 40 spaces available, for each two-hour designated time slot, per building. If you show up on a different day or time, you will not be allowed into your hall, and will not receive a key. You must sign up for a time slot.
