Spring 2023 Move In

Spring 2023 Move-In Options and Details

Move-In Times and Dates

All residents, both new and returning, are welcome to move into Campus Housing beginning at 12PM on Saturday, January 7 (12PM – 10PM), with Move In continuing on Sunday, January 8, between 8AM – 10PM.

No Move-In timeslots are required for residents moving into Campus Housing Spring 2023 semester.

Returning residents

  • We ask that all returning residents check-in at their residence hall’s front desk location upon arrival, so that we can confirm your return. Failure to check-in will result in further email, phone call, or text communications.

Guests Assisting with Move-In

Campus Housing defines guests as any individual that is not a roommate of the assigned resident. This includes family members or friends as well as students that reside in a residence hall location different than the hosting resident.

Guests will be allowed to assist during the Move-In process. All guests must be escorted by and in the presence of the resident hosting them while in the residence hall. Guests must have a govt. or state-issued photo ID on them, in case identification is needed.

Guests must wear face masks while on-campus, especially while in the residence halls. All PPE (personal protection equipment) must be provided by the resident and their guests.

Campus Housing does have a limited number of moving carts available for residents at front desk locations. Please plan accordingly.

  • Parking management will not be present. We strongly suggest that someone remain present with the vehicle while unloading.
  • Make sure to carry your i-card and keys with you at all times during your move so that we can minimize lock-outs and issuance of loaner keys.

If you are planning to arrive before Saturday, January 7, please sign up for Interim Housing. Residents will pay a per-night fee for Interim Housing. The preferred deadline to apply for Interim Housing is December 2.  If you do not sign up for Interim Housing, your room will not be ready for you if you arrive prior to Saturday, January 7.  

Following your application, please check your UIC email account for confirmation as the Interim approval process is ongoing. If you need to cancel your Interim Housing application, please send an email to before the start of the Interim period.

If you are unable to move in prior to Monday, January 9, please contact the Housing Office ( so that your late arrival will not be mistaken for a change in your housing plans (such as cancellation).
