Move-In Appointments

What is a “Move-In Appointment”?

It is a window of time for arriving at the unloading area during fall move-in. The purpose is to minimize traffic delays by scheduling student arrivals throughout the day.

Students can begin selecting Move-In Appointments on June 21. Appointments are available between the hours of 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. on move-in day. Your appointment provides you a 30-minute window to unload your vehicle. A limited number of appointments are available for each timeslot, so selecting your appointment early is strongly encouraged. 

PLEASE NOTE: Only dates and times will be visible to you based on your residence hall, Living Learning Program and any other applicable group or organization.
