Fall 2022 Move-In Details and Information

Selecting a Move-In Time

All residents, both new and returning, will need to select a specific Move-In Time this Fall 2022.

Residents with a room assignment for the 2022-2023 academic year will be able to sign up for a Move-In Time. If you have not yet received a room assignment for the 2022-2023 academic year, you will not be able to select a Move-In Time.

We recommend that residents consider any travel, transportation, and guest assistance plans prior to selecting your Move-In Time. The Move-In Time selection tool does allow residents to cancel and select a new Move-In Time, if necessary.

Having a specific Move-In time for each resident allows us to allocate our staff and resources in a manner to best assist residents during their Move-In. Time slots are also structured to allow for responsible social distancing and to reduce congestion.

Please note that arriving at a time other than your assigned Move-In time may result in a lengthy delay as we prioritize assistance to scheduled residents.
