Preparing for your Arrival

As an overnight guest, you will be staying in one of our residence halls with a current student. Please note the following:

  1. Please bring a sleeping bag, pillow, towel, toiletries and change of clothes. Casual, comfortable clothing is recommended. Since your host will not have an extra mattress, you will need to be prepared to sleep on the floor. If you are flying to San Diego and would like to rent a sleeping bag and/or sleeping pad for your stay, please refer to the event overview page to access the USD Outdoor Adventures reservation system.

  2. The Office of Undergraduate Admissions is happy to provide your lodging and up to three meals (dinner your first day, as well as breakfast and lunch the following day). You need only pay for transportation costs and may want to bring a little spending money in case you visit the Torero Store or want snacks.

  3. Please plan to spend your entire visit with your host. It is important that you do not leave campus during your stay. Feel free to bring books for studying.

  4. USD is not responsible for personal property that may be damaged, lost or stolen during your visit, or for students who leave campus. Guests are expected to abide by all USD policies and state laws. (Please read Student Rules and Regulations.)

  5. In an effort to provide an enjoyable and informative "day in the life of a Torero" experience, we expect all of our visitors to abide by the rules and policies that exist in order to maintain a safe and welcoming environment for current and visiting students.  Policy violations may result in appropriate corrective action. Please be advised that you are required to sign and return a Liability Form prior to your arrival on campus. If you are under the age of 18, the liability form must be signed by your parent or legal guardian. Your participation in this overnight event will be hindered if we do not receive a properly executed form prior to your arrival. Please submit a signed copy via one of the methods below:
