Fall Move In – 2014 – University Village Information

Residents that have been assigned to University Village (25400 Carlos Bee Boulevard, Hayward, CA 94542) for the Fall 2014 Quarter may begin check in on:

Sunday, September 21, 2014 - 10am – 4pm


On Sunday, 9/20 the check-in process for University Village (UV) will take place at UV. UV is located on Carlos Bee Boulevard. As residents drive in, they will be greeted by a staff member who will provide additional information. Once parked, residents can get in line for the check in process. Residents should plan on bringing a form of ID for verification. No one other than the assigned resident will be able to check in. There will be ample signs to direct residents accordingly.

Upon check in, a staff member will show the resident to their room where the resident will have an opportunity to review their living accommodations and make note of any damage on their Room Inventory Sheet (RIS). You will be given a CSUEB Housing Bay Card, your Dining Rain Check Card, your RIS, and other important information. You will be receiving information about your mailbox and combination via e-mail. Once check-in is complete, you will be directed to the Unloading Zone and will be free to move into your room at your leisure. We encourage you to follow these SEVEN EASY STEPS:

  • Step 1- Drive to University Village on Carlos Bee Boulevard
  • Step 2 – Get greeted by a staff member for further instructions/directions
  • Step 3 – Resident can exit car (if there is another driver) to get in line to check in. The driver can park the car in Lot C
  • Step 4 - Make your way to the Check-In table at the central location
  • Step 5 - After completing Check-In paperwork, a staff member will escort you to your room
  • Step 6 - You will be directed to the 20 minute Unloading Zone.
  • Step 7 - After unloading your vehicle, please park in the non-loading zone until departing campus

Note: If you already have a CSUEB Housing Bay Card please bring it with you to present at Check In. This card will begin to work for your apartment. If you do not have a card, you will receive one at check in.


Your final opportunity to check-in will be Monday, September 22, 2014.  Residents who plan to move in outside the main move in days listed above must go directly to their building/area desk to check in. Check In times will occur from 8pm-10pm. NO CHECK INS WILL OCCUR OUTSIDE OF THIS TIME PERIOD. If you arrive at the desk during this time and a staff member is not present, please contact the Resident Assistant (RA) on duty at the corresponding number below:

Parking Information

From Mission Blvd, the best route to get to University Village is by taking Carlos Bee Boulevard. Just past the City View Apartment Complex on your left, you will see UV. Take the left at the light which will allow you to enter the UV parking area.

Look for staff and signage directing you to Check-In and noting the traffic flow. Our staff will be directing traffic and monitoring the Unloading Zones and No Parking Zones. As a courtesy to everyone unloading, these parking guidelines will be strictly enforced.

After unloading, please move your vehicle to the regular parking zone so that other residents can unload their cars. Please understand that due to the number of vehicles on campus during this time, you may not be able to park in a space closest to the building. For this reason, we have requested students and families to follow the published move-in schedule.

Renter’s Insurance

Sometimes this will be covered under a parent’s homeowner/rental policy, but you will want to check with your insurance agent about the details.
