Student volunteers called "Village People" will assist with the move-in.

A series of activities and orientations are planned to help acclimate students to campus life and acquaint them with fellow residents. A special orientation is also planned for parents on Saturday. Campus staff will be available to assist students with computer setups, dining cards and bookstore information. Local vendors such as banks, restaurants and other services will also be on hand to familiarize students with the community.

Chipotle Mexican Grill is helping sponsor the move-in activities by providing burritos for all UVA residents that complete and turn-in a student roommate contract.

Classes at CSUSM begin on Monday, August 30.

University Village Apartments are located at 305 Campus View Drive, San Marcos.
