Fall 2022 Move-In Information

We are excited to welcome students for the 2022-23 academic year this Fall!  You will be able to self-select your move-in date and time in mid to late August in the Housing Portal from the available date/time slots at your residential community.

Current summer housing residents: Those current summer housing students whose housing/contracts end on September 3rd or 4th will be able to sign-up for Extended Housing to bridge your summer housing needs to the start of the academic year.  Email notifications were sent and those that signed up for Extended Housing will need to move to their permanent fall location on September 8, 2022.  You will only be able to select from move-in times on September 8 only.

Fall Move-In: For students with an active housing contract for the 2022-23 academic year, please see the current information available (all plans are subject to change based on campus, County and State guidelines).

  •  Move-In Date & Time: In mid to late August, students can select from the options below.  Times will roughly be between 8:30am - 4:00pm (subject to change):
    • September 9 - Specific priority move-in for students accepted into the Black, Latinx and Native American Family Orientation program. Early move-in costs are picked up by the program.

    • ALL incoming students will receive a COVID provider test (not through the vending machines). Updated move-in locations will be shared by mid-August.
  • Student move-in will be limited to two helpers during move-in. Additional requirements (masking, etc.) will be updated before September.
