Tips to Help Make Move-In a Breeze
Get ready. Move-in is just around the corner! Read through these important tips before arriving to campus.
1. PACK LIGHT
This year’s move-in will involve navigating a high volume of campus construction. We will still assist with unloading your vehicle and bringing your belongings to your room, but this year’s designated unloading location may be further away from your residence hall than years prior.
Because of the longer pathways to bring your items to your residence hall, we are strongly encouraging you to pack light. This will help reduce wait times for golf carts and bins, help our volunteers move your items more swiftly and efficiently, and improve the overall flow of traffic in a more congested move-in weekend.
- Mailing larger items to the campus mail room ahead of time (beginning August 8)
- Waiting to purchase certain items until you get here to give you a better sense of the room layout and available space
- Using bins when packing to help you condense
2. MOVE-IN ON YOUR ASSIGNED DAY
Please refer to your housing assignment email to identify which day you’ve been assigned to move in. Residents moving in outside of their assigned date may experience longer wait times or, if attempting to move-in early/late, may not be able to receive move-in assistance.
If you have any questions or concerns about your move-in date, please contact Residential Life at email@example.com.
3. REVIEW THE MOVE-IN MAP
This map indicates where you unload and park based on your residence hall, as well as current construction zones, vehicular detours, and pedestrian detours. We recommend reviewing this prior to arriving on campus to better familiarize yourself with available routes.
