Arrival on Campus
When to Arrive
International Student Orientation will be held four days prior to the start of classes. Please plan to arrive on campus exactly five days prior to the start of classes. If you arrive any earlier, you will need to make your own hotel arrangements.
- Arrival Form
Complete the International Student Arrival Form.
- Transportation to campus
Students are responsible for their own transportation from the airport to campus. A Taxi ride from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) to Thousand Oaks is very expensive (more than $100). It is recommended that you take a shuttle/van instead (approximately $50, plus tip), such as Road Runner Shuttle. View additional transportation options.
- Housing check-in
Check-in hours are 8am - 5pm at the Residence Life office located in Mt Clef Hall, at the corner of Mount Clef Blvd and Memorial Parkway (view on campus map). Check-in to housing, sign housing contract, and obtain room assignment and key.
- After hours check-in
If your flight is delayed and you arrive to campus after 5pm, please go to Campus Safety to pick up your room assignment and key. Campus Safety is located at the southwest corner of Olsen Road and Mount Clef Blvd (view on campus map) (805) 493-3526. If possible, please give advance notice of your late arrival to Nate Fall, Associate Director of Housing Operations for Residence Life, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (805) 493-3220 and the Study Abroad Center at (805) 493-3750.
Bedding is available for prior purchase and room delivery. Learn more about Living on Campus. International students will have a guided shopping trip the evening before Orientation.
