CAN MY FAMILY ATTEND WITH ME?
With recent events surrounding the COVID-19 Pandemic, we are limiting the number of people allowed on our campus.
With that being said, if you will be moving into our on-campus apartments we invite and encourage your parents and siblings to join you as you move into your new apartment home. 
All other events beginning on Friday will be for New Students only; we will not be allowing guests in order to limit the total number of people on campus. Our teams are working diligently to ensure you have a fun and safe New Student Orientation experience in light of current circumstances.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING IF I’M LIVING ON-CAMPUS?
We want to make sure you are prepared for life at the SDCC Apartments! Here is a complete list of items to bring & things not to bring: NSO PACKING LIST
