Frequently Asked Questions

How should I pack my things to make moving in easier?

To be certain that your belongings make it to your room safely, please follow these guidelines when packing:

  • Pack everything in suitcases or plastic storage bins.  Loose items are more likely to get lost and create more trips back and forth. In the event of inclement weather, your belongings will be much safer in a box than on their own!
  • Size matters!  Remember that, in some cases, you may need to use stairs to move your belongings. You will likely want to avoid bulky or heavy items.
  • Be informed!  Make sure that you have read the Community Guidelines and know what is and is not allowed in your room.  This will save time and effort for everyone.

Where do I go when I arrive on campus to move in?

For the spring semester, students will go directly to the service desk of their assigned residence hall to check-in and obtain their room key.

Where do I park?

Please register your license plate online for temporary unloading. Registering for a loading/unloading permit for Move-In will allow you to park temporarily in residential zones adjacent to University Housing buildings or in reserved unloading zones. Students are allowed a maximum of 45 minutes to unload their vehicles. Several spaces will be reserved for short-term unloading along Cates Avenue near Tucker and Owen Halls and in the Student Services Lot, on Thurman Drive adjacent to Pullen and Harris Halls.  Once unloaded, please move your vehicle to your dedicated parking area or to visitor parking areas in the Dan Allen Deck, Coliseum Deck, or West Deck.
