Undergraduate Move-In

What should I bring to campus?

See the "What Should I Pack?" section on the Undergraduate Housing website for a list of what to bring and what to leave at home.

Can I ship items to campus?

Yes!  See the "What Should I Pack?" section on the Undergraduate Housing website for more information.

Can I move in early?
No early move-in options are available. There are no exceptions to this policy.
When should I arrive on move-in day?
All new students living in the residence halls will be asked to sign up for a specific move in time. More information about these specific move in times, will be available via the Wildcat Welcome move in site. If you have special circumstances in which you need a specific move in time, please contact the Office of Residential Life.
On move-in day, where are parents and students permitted to park? How long can we park?
Parking will be available on campus in the North and South garages from Friday, September 21 to Wednesday, September 26. Parking permits will not be required during this timeframe.
Will there be students to assist with move-in?
On move-in day, all Wildcat Welcome Peer Advisers and other University staff will be assisting with your move-in to the residence halls.
When should parents and family members plan on leaving?

Families decide to leave at a variety of times during Parent and Family Orientation, though traditionally families leave in three equal waves: at the conclusion of move-in day (Friday evening), right after March Through the Arch (Saturday morning), or at the end of all PFO programming (Sunday afternoon).  


Once a student begins their orientation programming on Friday afternoon, there will be no concurrent scheduling between a student and family member's orientation schedule except for 15 minutes on Saturday morning at the conclusion of March Through the Arch where there is a pause in the schedule for Kiss'n'Bye. Please take this into consideration when you are planning travel and times to see your student as they set off to begin their college career.
