Moving In On Campus

Fall 2024

All undergraduate students moving in for Fall 2024 should select a timeslot for moving in via our Housing Portal. Instructions will be included in housing assignments/confirmations which will be sent out mid-June 2024. Please note that which move-in day will be assigned to you will be based on your housing assignment. Please wait to make your travel plans until you have your assignment.

  • New student move-in will occur on Monday, August 19 and Tuesday, August 20 so that students are able to participate in orientation activities.
  • Returning students will move in on Thursday, August 22 through Friday, August 23. 

More information, including arrival routes, will be added to this page through the spring and summer months as additional details become available.
