If you cannot arrive by August 21st , we also offer late move-in on August 22nd from 1 pm-7pm by appointment only. Please inform us immediately if you will not be arriving by August 21st.
International students who will live on campus are scheduled to move into their residence halls earlier than other student groups. This allows for attendance at special events, including International Student/NSE Orientation, and provides extra time to adjust to campus.
Please note that if you arrive earlier than the housing move-in date, you will not be able to check in to your on-campus housing accommodations. If you have legitimate reason to arrive earlier than the housing move-in date, please notify us as soon as possible, because your housing contract begins on the housing move-in date, and your room will not be ready to move into until that date exactly.
This will be your first chance to experience everything CSUMB has to offer! Orientation provides valuable information to ease your transition to campus and life in the USA. All new international students in F-1/J-1 status (including transfer students from other U.S. schools) and National Exchange students are required to attend mandatory orientation sessions.
