Move-in day Sept. 1, 2023

Move-in for first-year students will take place on Friday, Sept. 1.

By mid-July, first-year students will receive housing assignments via email. 

Move-in details

After you receive a housing assignment, you can use to select your arrival appointment. 

Some students move in earlier for international orientation, PACE or athletics. Early arrival students will receive move-in instructions from their coach or program coordinator and will not need to schedule an arrival appointment. 

When you arrive you will get your room key, and student ID. We will have volunteers on hand to help carry belongings on Sept. 1, but not for early arrivals.

Early unloading

To help alleviate congestion on Friday morning, we are offering a limited number of early unloading appointments the evening of Thursday, Aug. 31. Staff will be available to unlock rooms, but will not issue keys to students on Thursday night.

To sign up for early unloading, call the Office of Residential Life at 309-794-2686.
