7/25/23 — Move-in appointment information for transfer students

This email was sent by the Office of Residence Life.




Dear Student,

Please carefully read this email and forward it to those who will be helping you move in. Discuss your move in plan together prior to creating a move in appointment. Move in appointment selection begins August 3.

*If you are part of an early arrival group, you do not need to sign up for a move in appointment time. Please follow the instructions of your group's advisor, coach, or supervisor.

We are excited to offer you the opportunity to select your move in appointment for Fall 2023. The move in date and time for transfer students is Sunday, August 20 between 8AM and 12PM (the last appointment will be at 11AM).


Move in appointments are in 1 hour increments, but that is not the time limit to unpack and set up your room. The 1 hour appointment is the time you are scheduled to arrive.  You then have 30 minutes to unload your vehicle and move the vehicle to the designated parking area. After unloading and moving the vehicle, you can begin unpacking and setting up your room.

You will be able to select your move in appointment beginning at the time below based on the building where you will be living. You will not be able to choose an appointment prior to your time. However, you can choose an appointment after your time and anytime prior to August 14 at noon. In addition, you can choose and/or make changes to your appointment time until August 14 at noon. All move-in appointments will be finalized at 12:00PM on August 14.


When your appointment selection begins, please log into the Online Housing System, select "Forms," and click "Move-In Appointment Selection."
