Move In FAQs

Below are answers to generally asked questions to help you prepare for moving in.

  • Renters Insurance: Have your parent or guardian check to see if their homeowner's policy covers you while you are here at UC San Diego. You may need extra coverage for computers, jewelry, personal liability, etc. If you are not covered, we recommend you look into renters' insurance. If you need personal property insurance, please contact National Student Services Incorporated at http://www.nssi.com/. NSSI specializes in student personal property insurance.
  • Singles: Unfortunately, the demand for singles far exceeds the number of single rooms available so not all students who request a single room will be assigned to one. There is an additional cost per year to live in a single room. Please check http://housing.ucsd.edu/ to view updated housing costs.
  • Roommates: Generally students will begin to receive more detailed information about move in day in early September. The Revelle Residence Life Office will send notification e-mails to your UC San Diego e-mail account when your roommates/suite mates information is available for viewing in your housing portal. While September may seem late, there are many changes in our student population over the summer. We want to provide you with firm information and doing assignments later facilitates this. Be sure to ask one another what you are bringing (so you do not end up with four microwaves) and discuss whether you would like to share phone service or if you will use your own cell phone, etc.
  • Moving Equipment: A hand truck or dolly to carry heavy or bulky items always makes the moving process easier. A limited number of carts may be available for check-out during move-in. Please note that the Fleet Residence Halls are four stories and do not have an elevator. We recommend more trips with lighter boxes when moving into these buildings.
