Move-In Checklist

Plan ahead for a smooth start to your semester.

Are you feeling stressed about everything to do before and after you move in? We get it! Starting college can be intense. Move-in is a time of high emotions — mostly excitement, but also nervousness and uncertainty for both students and their families.

To help you prepare, we've compiled this checklist of items to do before, during, and after you arrive.

Do you have questions?

We have answers to all of the questions we receive most frequently in our Move-in Guide and Move-In Checklist. You can also feel free to contact us. We've helped countless students prepare to move in, so we are happy to help!

Please note: Email responses may be delayed after housing assignment notifications are emailed to students at the end of July, and on August 26 and 27, 2024, as Housing & Residential Life staff are assisting residents at move-in. Please review the information on the website; otherwise, staff will be able to answer questions when students check in.
