Moving In

We are excited to welcome you to campus in January! We would like to make your move into the residence halls as streamlined as possible. The information on this page will be helpful as you make plans.

Students are allowed to have a maximum of 2 guests to help them move into the residence halls. Everyone is required to wear masks during move-in, regardless of vaccination status. Unfortunately, we cannot provide moving bins this year, so please plan ahead accordingly!

10 students' tips for Move-in Day

Spring 2022 Move-In:

  • Move-in for all students in Spring 2022 will take place over multiple days. A multiple-day timeline allows us to reduce population density and diminish foot traffic for buildings during each time slot.

  • Students will be able to select the day and time of their move-in slot. Students can select 60-minute time slots from 9:00 am – noon and 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm. Please choose carefully as once you have selected a time; we are unable to change the time and day.

  • Please note that you must move in on your appointed day (neither earlier nor later), and you will only be able to choose a time slot on the move-in days available to you. 

  • Selection of move-in time slots will be open on Monday, January 3 at 9am through Friday, January 14 at 4pm in the MyHousing portal.

Move-in Dates:

  • January 20 | 9:00 am – noon and 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm, New First Year, Transfer, and International students (spring only)
  • January 21-23 | 9:00 am – noon and 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm, Returning Students
  • Students that have been approved for break housing or early arrival (prior to date above) do not need to select a move-in time slot. These students should arrive on the date arranged with Residence Life and Housing at time of approval.
  • International students are asked to contact International Student and Scholar Services (isss@oswego.edu) before they make travel arrangements.
  • Late arrivals: If you are not able to move into your residence hall or Village townhouse apartment until after Sunday, January 23, you do not have to register for a move-in slot and you may check in at your front desk until Thursday, January 27, 2022.

Move-in Sign-up: 

To keep the density low while on campus and within the move-in process we have limited the number of move-in time slots available. Family and guests can still accompany students during the move-in process and are welcome to enter the residence halls and Village Townhouse apartments.

Students log in at myHousing and select the day and time for move-in. Please choose carefully as once you have selected a time; we are unable to change the time and day. We realize that plans will change and that delays due to traffic, and events may impact the day and time that you have selected. We will do our best to work with students and families while ensuring the safety measures that we have in place.

Selection of move-in time slots will be open on Monday, January 3 at 9am through Friday, January 14 at 4pm. 

To sign-up for a move-in time use the following steps:

  1. Go to myHousing.oswego.edu

  2. Log in with your Lakernet ID and password

  3. Scroll down to “Room Assignments” where you will see “(your hall) Student Check-in”

  4. Select a move-in day and time (students can only sign-up for days and times based on their status)

  5. Speak with your family before you select a day and time.

  6. Once you select your day and time it will be displayed within the portal. You will not receive a confirmation email as the day and time that you select will be granted. Only the days and times that are available are displayed.

  7. Additional information will be sent to your oswego.edu email closer to move-in with directions and additional information

What can I expect when I move-in? 

We expect all students and visitors to wear a face cover/mask throughout the check-in process, in the residence halls and Village Townhouses while on campus. We are in the process of finalizing the move-in experience and ask that you continue to check this page for updates.
