2023 Fall Move-in


The Department of Housing and Residence Life is very excited to welcome our new and returning residents home for the spring semester!


Official move-in dates:

  • August 21st – Centennial Place
  • August 22nd – Living Learning Complex
  • August 23rd – Rawls, Smith, and South Halls
  • August 24th – Lambuth Campus
  • August 25th – Carpenter Complex and Park Avenue

Residents arriving on campus for Fall 2023 academic year are required to sign-up for move-in appointments through the online Housing Portal (where students originally applied for housing).

The appointment window is set for 30 minutes; however, students will have a 2-hour period to move their belongings into their room. We ask that students limit the number of people assisting with their move-in as much as possible, with a maximum of three (3) guests allowed during a move-in appointment.

  • Early check/move-in times will not be available this spring.
  • Students who are suspected to have, confirmed to have, or who 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. For the latest including COVID-19 updates from the University of Memphis, please visit memphis.edu/coronavirusupdates.
  • If a student is unable to move-in during the above dates 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.
  • Housing@memphis.edu *Students who have not checked-in by Sunday, August 27 at 5 p.m. (who have not made arrangements with our office) will count as a no-show and may lose their space and be assessed a 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 Housing Contract

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