Crown Move-in & Welcome Week 2018

Friday, September 21 - New Students

Sunday, September 23 - Continuing Students

New Student Move-In is Friday, Sept. 21st from 8am-4pm

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 the building at which you are assigned.

Sign Up for a Move-In Time Here:

On move-in day, you’ll park in lot #119 located at Merrill College within the time chosen and park your car. Students should proceed with a picture ID to the nearby check-in area.  After you have checked in and received your keys, staff in the parking lot will confirm that an unloading parking space is available.  You will drive to that space and unload your vehicle. You will have 20 minutes to unload your vehicle (and yes, it can be done). Limited unloading time at the college facilitates everyone getting the best access as quickly as possible. After you have unloaded, your vehicle will need to be moved to the East Remote parking lot.  Shuttles will be available to bring you and/or those traveling with you back to the college to unpack and get settled.

UCSC is in one of the most visually spectacular settings in higher education. 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. In order to get over 9,000 students moved-in over the course of four days, and ensure everyone has the smoothest move-in experience possible, we ask that you follow the instructions provided to you regarding your specific move-in. We appreciate your help in making this the best move-in and first few days on campus for our students!

Given the short window students have for unloading, and the limited storage space available in campus rooms, we strongly encourage you to pack light. 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 you decide to leave campus immediately following your move-in time, you will need to park in the East Remote parking lot.

REMEMBER:

  • UCSC Move-In is 9,000 students in 4 days via two roads!
  • We need your help to make it go smoothly.
  • Please pack ONLY what you really initially need.
  • Please follow all instructions, adhere to your Move-In time slot, and make your drop-off efficient.
  • Thank You and Go Slugs!

We appreciate your patience and cooperation as we make sure to get all our slugs moved in safely and efficiently!
