Fall Move-In 2019

Fall Move-In Dates

Saturday, August 17*:  Panhellenic Sorority Recruitment, Wildcat Marching Band, BCTC, International Students

Monday, August 19: Living Learning Program

Wednesday August 21: Big Blue Move-In for Freshmen and Returning Students

August 17*, 19 and 21 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. A limited number of carts will be available to checkout.

Please check with your respective LLP, group, or department to confirm dates, times, and logistics.

New students are encouraged to move in no later than Wednesday, August 21, in order to fully participate in K Week activities.

*An early move-in fee of $25 per night will be charged to students moving in prior to Monday, August 19.


Move-In Appointments

What is a “Move-In Appointment”?

It is a recommended “window” of time for arriving at the unloading area during Fall Move-In.  The purpose is to “spread out” the arrivals throughout the day.

Students have a one-hour Move-In Appointment “window.”

RETURNING Students who choose to move-in after August 21st have morning, early afternoon, or late afternoon “windows” (see details for Returning Students below).
