Move-In Times & Locations

Students receive correspondence directly from Housing & Residence Life about housing assignments and move-in dates. The information below can help you begin to plan.

Undergraduate Students

Incoming First-Year Students

Move-In for first-year students will occur on either Friday, August 23 or Saturday, August 24, depending on your room assignment. You receive your move-in date and location when you receive your room assignment. Early arrivals are only permitted in special circumstances (see "Undergraduate Early Arrivals" below for more information).

In order to help manage traffic flow and greeter resources on move-in days, Housing & Residence Life has established move-in time slots. These windows specify your arrival time, and are assigned to you based on your housing assignment. Roommates should coordinate with each other to stagger arrival times during the assigned window.

You may come at any time during your assigned window, but please make plans to arrive during the date and time slot assigned for your specific building:

You will be able to temporarily unload your car relatively close to your building. Look for signs directing you to your area once you arrive on Grounds. You will have 15 minutes to unload your belongings. A driver must stay with the car at all times. It is important that you then move your car to longer-term parking at the Emmet/Ivy Garage or John Paul Jones Arena lot/garage (Friday) or Scott Stadium (Saturday) as quickly as you can. Moving your car will help with the traffic flow on Grounds and in the local community.

 

Upperclass and Transfer Students

Unless approved for an early arrival, students in most upperclass housing areas may move in on Friday, August 23 between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. or on Saturday, August 24 between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.

We plan to schedule move-in at Bond House for Sunday, August 25 and Monday, August 26 -- specific times and details are TBA.

If you wish to be considered for check-in before August 23, see "Undergraduate Early Arrivals" below.

You will be able to temporarily unload your car relatively close to your building. Look for signs directing you to your area once you arrive on Grounds. Bice/Bond residents should note that short-term parking in the lot immediately adjacent to the buildings will be limited. In all areas, it is important that you move your car to longer-term parking at the Emmet/Ivy Garage or John Paul Jones Arena lot/garage (Friday) or Scott Stadium (Saturday) as quickly as you can after unloading belongings. Moving your car will help with the traffic flow on Grounds and in the local community.

 

Undergraduate Early Arrivals

If you are part of a University group that requires your presence on Grounds before Opening (such as an athletic team or Session K Orientation), your program leader will contact Housing & Residence Life to coordinate approval for early arrivals. Students not part of a sponsored group need to submit an Early Arrival Application, available in July. Not all early arrival requests will be approved.

 

Undergraduate Late Arrivals

We recommend incoming first-year and transfer students arrive in time to participate in the mandatory Wahoo Welcome events on Friday and Saturday. Returning students may arrive later, if they choose.

Sunday, August 25

The Housing & Residence Life Main Office in Gibbons House will be open from 12:00 noon until 5:00 p.m. for students who need to pick up keys to rooms in Dunglison, Fitzhugh, and the Lawn.

Monday, August 26

Check in at the Housing & Residence Life Main Office in Gibbons House from 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.

Tuesday, August 27 and beyond

Students arriving on or after Tuesday, August 27 must inform Housing & Residence Life in order to keep their housing assignment. If you enroll at the University but fail to check into your assigned residence, you are still responsible for payment of housing charges for the entire academic year.

 

Graduate Students, Faculty, and Staff

Your move-in date is specified on your housing agreement. Keys can be picked up at the Housing & Residence Life Main Office during business hours: Monday - Friday (except holidays), 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Please see your room assignment and our Graduate Housing FAQ or Faculty/Staff Housing FAQ for other important move-in information.
