2021 Fall Move-In Schedule


In accordance with the University's plans and preparations for a return "to a fully face-to-face campus" this fall, the Department of Housing and Residence Life looks forward to welcoming our new and returning Tigers to their campus home!!

For the health and safety of our campus community, all residents will be required to schedule move-in appointments to complete a check-in for their fall housing assignment. We require all residents to strictly adhere to their scheduled time; you will have a 2-hour window to move your belongings into your room and we ask that you limit the number of people assisting you with your move-in as much as possible, with a maximum of three (3) guests allowed during your move-in appointment.


Official move-in dates – Wednesday, August 18 – Friday, August 20, 9 a.m. – 7 p.m..

  • Move-in times will be by appointment only.
    • Students will receive an email later this summer from our Department with more information on their move-in and how to schedule a move-in appointment.

* Early check/move-in times will not be available this fall.

** Students who are suspected to have, confirmed to have, or have been in sustained proximity to someone suspected or confirmed to have COVID-19, will need to complete their self-isolation period before scheduling a move-in appointment.

*** If a student is unable to move-in during the August 18 - 20 they will need to communicate via email with the Residence Life Coordinator (RLC) of their assigned residence hall. Appointments will be available on a limited basis.

****Arrivals after Sunday, August 22 at 5 p.m. (who have not made arrangements with our office) will count as a no-show, lose their space and be assessed a $200 cancellation fee.


  • To check in, you'll need a valid ID Card
  • You MUST be enrolled in at least 6 credit hours at the time of check-in.
  • Have all immunizations required by state and University policies.
  • Have a completed updated 2021 – 2022 Housing Contract

*Students that have not completed these items will not be able to complete their check-in and move-in to their fall housing assignment.
