Freshmen students in their dorm

Care Packages for Students

Breadcrumb

Parents send their students to the university in hopes their student will feel a part of the campus. We want you to know we are just as invested in providing your student with a strong sense of support.

Students at the Residence Hall

Care Packages

To welcome first-year students, the Student Alumni Association (SAA) hosts an annual “Welcome to Campus” event in which each incoming freshman, living in the residence halls receives a care package!

To purchase a “Welcome Care Package” for your student visit swaku.com/ucr.

Once students are settled, we encourage families to stay connected. Let your student know you are thinking of them on their birthday, during the holidays, or while they prepare for exams. Show your support with a care package; options include baked goods, snacks, stuffed animals, and healthier choices as well.

The care package program assists SAA in raising funds for the educational, social, and recreational activities we sponsor on campus.  

Send a Care Package

Upon completion of your order, care packages will arrive at your student’s Resident Services Office or at the Alumni & Visitors Center for pickup.


College Res Hall Room Outfitting

Preparing for college is quite an involved process and identifying and accumulating all the necessary items can be somewhat of a daunting task.

Over the years, we have developed and refined a What-to-Bring Checklist (below) as a tool for our parents and students. To help complete that checklist, we have partnered with SWAK University Services to establish our own SAA-sponsored room outfitting store

Our store includes over 1000 products for their room, all of which fall within our school guidelines. In particular, we would encourage you to look at our linen products, as quality and sizing can be an issue when buying bedding for college. All our bedding products can stand up to regular washing and will not bleed or fray. Furthermore, they are guaranteed to fit our Twin-XL beds and to last until graduation.

The deadline to order is July 31st!
