Fall Move-in 2021

International Village Move-In will take place:

  • Tuesday, August 31st 8:30am-6:00pm
  • Wednesday, September 1st 8:30am-6:00pm
  • Thursday, September 2nd 8:30am-6:00pm
  • Friday, September 3rd 8:30am-6:00pm

As you review your travel plans in the upcoming weeks, it is imperative that you arrive during your scheduled move-in date and time.

What to Bring

To make the move-in experience as smooth as possible for you and our entire community, we ask that you bring only your essentials and a few personal touches to campus. Your belongings should fit in one 4’x3’x3’ hamper or be able to be carried in one trip.

Please refer to our list of What to Bring to best prepare for your arrival.

Shipping and Mailing

Shipping items to pre-arrive to your room is available through a preferred vendor, and the deadlines are in mid-August. Additional information about shipping items to campus mailrooms will be sent in late-August; however, you should anticipate delays in processing and wait times for pick-up. Due to the rush of package deliveries during move-in, you should expect processing delays, and plan that you should not ship any essential items such as bedding, medicine, or toiletries that you will need during your first several days in housing.

Microfridge Rentals

The university’s preferred vendor for MicroFridge units has experienced an increase in demand due to anticipated grab-and-go dining options across the country. As we expect many dining options on campus to reflect this model, we recommend you discuss this option with your roommate. If you decide to rent or buy, you should place your order early. Small refrigerators under 5.0 cubic feet are permitted to be brought in lieu of a MicroFridge, but microwaves are not permitted unless part of a MicroFridge unit.
