Fall 2018 Big Blue Move-In

Move-In Appointment

The online sign-up process for selecting your Move-In Appointment is over.  Should you have missed the opportunity to select your move-in appointment and would like to do so, please send an email to the Campus Housing office.

 

Dates and Times

August 15, 16 and 17 are “assisted” move-in days.  From 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., there will be traffic control, assistance unloading your vehicle, and the ability to check-out carts.  All other move-in days are “unassisted,” meaning there will not be traffic control, no assistance unloading your vehicle and you will need to check-out a cart from the front desk of your residence hall. 

For all move-in days, it is recommended that you bring your own cart and/or dolly as well.

Meals
Students and their families are invited to enjoy a meal--for only $6!--on August 15, 16, and 17 at Champions Kitchen in the Gatton Student Center or the Fresh Food Company at The 90. Student meal plans start on Friday, August 17.

For a printable map showing the individual route to your unloading area, click on the name of your residence hall listed in the Hall Code Card section (below).
