Early Arrival Program

An Early Arrival Program allows eligible students to move into their fall housing assignment before the scheduled move-in date for their college or residential facility.

To be eligible a student must meet one or more of the following criteria:

  • Student’s on-campus employer requires them to start working prior to the start of the fall quarter.
  • Student is participating in a pre-fall quarter training or orientation program with a UCSC program, department, or college.
  • Student is a university housing resident for the duration of the summer.
  • Student's move-in date is scheduled to occur during a religious holiday. Student may request an early move-in by contacting the Housing Coordinator at their college or residential facility. There is no additional charge to move in early for religious reasons. For more information please see the UC Policy for Addressing Religious Holiday Conflicts with Residence Hall "Move-In" Days (PDF).

Interested campus groups should contact the Early Arrival Program at earlyarrivalprogram@ucsc.edu for more information. 

Eligible students (based on the above criteria) interested in arranging for an early fall move-in must contact their UCSC employer or program. The employer or program must coordinate with the Early Arrival Program (earlyarrivalprogram@ucsc.edu) in order to participate.
