It was move-in weekend at UC Berkeley and UC Merced! The two semester system UC campuses are once again teeming with students as they — with the help of their parents and siblings — moved into campus housing and prepared for the start of the new year.

UC's other campuses operate on a quarter system calendar and will begin the fall quarter in late September. Students will move in at those campuses next month.

Here's a quick look at the bustle of move-in days of previous years and a Storify look at move in weekend at UC Berkeley.
