Your Move In Day Experience

Tips

  • Bring your student ID to your designated residence hall check-in location. All check in locations are in McCormick Student Village. Pick up your keys, Room Condition Form (RCF) and Residence Hall Handbook.
  • If you need a moving truck, you are bringing too much! However, a dolly or hand truck will be helpful for a quick move in.
  • Label your boxes! Pack smaller boxes that are not too heavy. Not all buildings have elevators, and it is common for lines to be very long when waiting for the elevator.
  • Recruit family and friends to assist you. When you are unloading your car and getting your belongings up to your room quickly, it is beneficial to have helping hands.
  • Bring your patience. Residence and Greek Life staff will be at all buildings to make your Move-In day seamless. Traffic can be heavy with nearly 1,500 residents and families moving in.
  • Observe all parking restrictions and traffic patterns. Don’t park in fire lanes, service areas, driving lanes, roadways, or other areas not designated for parking.
  • Return the Room Condition Form to Residence and Greek Life no later than Friday, August 31.  Turn it in the day you move in to avoid losing it! A $50 fee will be assessed to residents who fail to turn their RCF in on time.
