Continuing Student Move In

Continuing Student 
Crown & Merrill Move-in Days:
Monday, September 23rd through Wednesday, September 25th
from 9am to 4pm
While being situated in the middle of a redwood forest provides both beauty and serenity, it also creates a challenge for large-scale events like move-in. With only two roads in and out of campus, we have to be strategic and intentional when designing move-in plans.

This year, all UCSC continuing students will move in Monday, Sept. 23rd through Wednesday, Sept. 25th. This will help you to avoid traffic issues, long lines and congestion while also allowing frosh to arrive early to begin orientation activities. We appreciate your cooperation in making this the smoothest move-in experience possible, by following the guidance provided below. Thank you, and please know, we are so excited to have you back!

Preparing for Move-in
In order to help traffic flow, and to get you an unloading space close to your building, we ask that you sign up for a move-in slot that will work best for you. Look at the schedule at the following link and choose ONE check-in time slot (regardless of how many cars or people are coming with you, please leave the quantity at 1 when you sign up). Be sure to pick a time slot for area at which you are assigned.
RESIDENCE HALL Continuing Student Move-in
On move-in day, go to parking lot #119 located at Merrill College within the time chosen and park your car. Students should proceed with a picture ID to the Crown & Merrill Housing Office to check-in  After you have checked in and received your keys, you can move your car closer to your building for unloading. You will have 20 minutes to unload your vehicle (and yes, it can be done). Your cooperation with the limited unloading time is what facilitates everyone getting the best access as quickly as possible.
After you have unloaded, you may move your vehicle to the East Remote parking lot.  Shuttles will be available to bring you back to the college to unpack and get settled.

You will have 20 minutes to unload your vehicle (and yes, it can be done). Your cooperation with the limited unloading time is what facilitates everyone getting the best access as quickly as possible.

Other Details
Given the short window students have for unloading, and the limited storage space available in campus rooms, we strongly encourage you to pack light and to communicate with roommates (if applicable) about larger electronics/appliances that may be shared. Please see our website for more details on what to bring.
Please note that if you or your family members leave campus to run errands, it will be difficult to get back to your specific college. If wish to leave campus immediately following your move-in time, you will need to park in the East Remote parking lot and return via the shuttles.
We appreciate your help in making this the best move-in for yourself and all our students!
