Move-In Day

2021 Fall Residence Move-In

Details will be sent by email with information about the Fall 2021 move-in process, and any protocols related to COVID-19 regulations at that time. Students will receive more information about their move-in time slot via email in August.

PLEASE NOTE: If you are arriving to move in to a self-isolation unit, you will find relevant move-in day information on our self-isolation website here. If you haven’t applied for self-isolation yet (and need to), visit this page here.

What to Expect

We will communicate the move-in process with students by email. Thank you for your understanding as we adapt our move-in plan and make it safe and manageable for you, and our staff.

On Your Move-In Day

Step 1 – Prepare

Complete these checklists: Before you leave home and What to pack. And be sure plan your arrival to coincide with your check-in time (see info above).

Step 2 – Arrive, check in and unload

Plan your route to arrive at your check-in time. We will provide you with more details about where to go (and when) soon.

Step 3 – Park, Recharge, and Get Settled

After your vehicle is unloaded, park it in a nearby long-term parking lot. Parking on campus is free today! Family members and friends are welcome to stay and help. Bring water and snacks, take a break, and prepare to meet your residence community.

Need a long-term parking pass? Apply for waitlist at UBC Parking.

Arriving by car?

First off, GPS is great for getting to UBC Okanagan, but once you’re close to campus, follow our signs – we’ll provide you with information about what lot to go to in the coming weeks.

Arriving by taxi?

If you have a lot of luggage, ask the driver to wait while you check in and get your unit keys and then have them drive you to your building.

What if I arrive late?

Arriving outside your pre-determined time? No problem! Starting August 2021, our office will be open 24 hours a day.
