Spring Move-In Highlights

We are excited to have you join us on campus this semester.  Whether you are new on campus for the Spring semester, or you are returning from the Fall semester, we are looking forward to having you in the Residential Community! While we finalize some of our check in plans, to be fully prepared for the Spring semester, please review some of our highlighted information below.

The Residential Community will be ready to welcome new student on Friday, January 20, 2023!!!  Students will check in at the REACH Office located in Zinfandel Hall.


Are you a registered Winter Break/Intersession Resident...

Your ID card is already active for the Spring semester, thus, you are not required to complete anything else. 

A resident who has not yet registered for Winter/Break…

Please complete the Winter Break registration online through your Housing Portal.  You will be sent a confirmation email along with instructions on how to access your residence.

A resident who lived on campus for Fall and will be returning to the same room…

You will be able to go directly to your room and not have to re-encode your ID card.  The only reason you would have to visit the REACH Office is to activate your card if you had a temporary card right before break and never reactivated it.

A resident who received approval from REACH to change rooms?

Visit the REACH Office during Check-In Hours (see below) to activate your Seawolf ID card and receive Move-In materials

A new resident (starting at Sonoma State this Spring or was not living on campus for Fall)

Visit the REACH Office during Check-In hours (see below) to activate your Seawolf ID card, or receive a temporary card until you receive a student ID card. You will also receive Move-In materials at this time.
