Remember to do these things before you move out.

Prepare your room.

  • Defrost and dry out your MicroFridge the day before you leave. It will keep your room free of mold and melted ice puddles.
  • Clean your room.
  • Empty your trash.
  • Unplug all of your electrical devices.
  • Turn off the heat and air conditioning.
  • Close and lock your windows and doors.
  • If you live on the ground level, place a wooden dowel in the track of your window to prevent it from being opened.

Pack your things.

Take everything you will need with you. You will not be able to access your room or any belongings during Winter Break. Read the official move-out page on UCLA Housing for more details.

Don’t miss your flight.

You have many travel options from the Hill to the airport. UCLA Transportation recommends FlyAway because it’s the most affordable option. Read more about FlyAway.

Staying after all? Contact Housing Administration by Friday December 8 at 4:00 pm.

If you end up changing your plans and want to stay on the Hill for the entire Winter Break, you need to get in touch with UCLA Housing Administration.

UCLA Housing Administration is on the first floor of Sproul Hall, open weekdays from 9:00 to 11:30 am and 12:30 to 4:00 pm. Read more about Stay-Overs and Stay-Throughs on Ask Housing.
