Moving In

Move-in Days 2022

We are excited to welcome you to campus! 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. For early arrival and move-in dates and times, view the Opening and Closing Schedule.

Students requesting an early arrival date and time will be able to submit their request to starting August 1, 2022.


Early Arrival Sign Up and Fees

Early Arrival Fees are $40 per day for housing and $30 per day for meals (required for students in traditional and suite housing; optional for students in apartments/townhouses).

Students requesting an early arrival date and time will be able to submit their request to starting August 1, 2022. Students may be approved for early arrival as a member of a campus department or as a self-pay student.

Campus departments sponsoring student returns for training/employment will be billed the early arrival fees for the students. Self-pay students not sponsored by a campus department will have early arrival fees are added to their student accounts.

Sign Up For Move-In Time

In order to expedite your move in process students will be able to sign up for a move in time block prior to your arrival. Starting August 1 students will be able to log into their Myhousing account and sign up for a move in time block. We realize that plans will change and that delays due to traffic and events may impact the day and time that you have selected, if you need to update your move in block, please select from available options on your Myhousing account.

What can I expect when I move in?

University Police Helping with Traffic

Our dedicated UPD officers will be stationed around campus and near residence halls to help point you in the right direction - literally!  Upon arriving at your residence hall, you will be able to park your vehicle curbside in front of the residence hall to unload all your belongings on the sidewalk. Once all your belongings are unloaded, you will be asked to move your vehicle to one of our designated parking lots.

Laker Move-In Crew Assistance

This is a group of returning students who volunteer to come back to campus early in order to welcome our new students to the residence halls. Their primary focus is to physically assist you with moving your belongings into your room as efficiently as possible.  In addition, crew members will be able to answer any questions you might have or point you in the right direction for any further help you might need!

Resident Assistants & Front Desk Attendants Checking You In

Our friendly residence hall student staff will be ready and waiting to officially check you in to your home away from home!  You will receive your room key or code, mailbox information, and walk through a number of other check-in stations providing you with helpful information.  One of our friendly Resident Assistants will then show you the way to your room and review your "Room Condition Report" with you to make sure everything is in working order!

Meet your Residence Hall Director and Neighbors

Your RHD will be present and walking through your residence hall throughout move-in day in order to meet you and your family and help answer any questions you might have.  Your RHD is a professional staff member who is there to help support you during your time living with us.  They do everything from making sure our halls are in tip top shape to helping students navigate living with a roommate for the first time.  They also have apartments and offices right in your residence hall so they are easily accessible to you!  Plan to attend a floor meeting on your very first evening here after completing move-in so you can hear more from your RHD as well as meet up with other students on your floor.
