Updated: April 2, 2021
University Housing looks forward to welcoming you to your campus home! To protect the health and safety of residents and staff, students and supporters are expected to abide by physical distancing policies and wear face coverings while on campus. All students will book a move-in appointment for a particular date and time.
Mustang Move-in Dates
Tuesday - Wednesday, Sept. 14-15: University Housing move-in for new students

Early move-in will be offered for Early Start Programs participants—students who are required to be on campus to support programming for fall opening.
All residents must reserve a move-in appointment for a particular date and time to unload your vehicle, check-in, and park. Reservations are booked in August in your Housing Portal under Mustang Move-in.
To ensure a safe and convenient experience, Mustang Move-in maps will be posted here in August. Our maps include directions to Cal Poly, campus traffic routes, designated drop-off zones based on housing assignment, short- and long-term parking info. and check-in locations. Be sure to check back for these closer to move in.
Parent and Supporter Sessions
University Housing hosts a brief presentation and Q and A about the resident student experience for parents and supporters. Check back for dates and times; these will be posted closer to move in.
Tips and Reminders
Campus housing is located on hilly terrain. Be prepared to climb stairs. September days on the Central Coast are warm. Wear comfortable shoes, a hat, sunscreen and water. Please leave pets at home.
Once on campus, navigate to your community's drop-off zone to unload your car, check-in, and park. Sanitized green moving bins will be available to assist in your move.
Your new home comes furnished and move-in ready. View floor plans and amenities for campus residences here:
- Sierra Madre & Yosemite Halls
- South Mountain Halls
- North Mountain Halls

Don’t bring your entire room with you. You always have breaks to get things from home or have things shipped to you.
Pack light, in case public health conditions necessitate changes to fall assignments. Take a look at the "Free to Bring" suggestion checklist, and talk with your roommates/apartment-mates about items to share. Please leave prohibited items at home.
