Move-In for Fall 2024 is Sunday September 1, 2024, through Tuesday September 3, 2024, 10 am to 3 pm. Follow the Fall Move In Steps below. New Parkside students should arrive by Monday to partake in Ranger Welcome Events

Move-In for Spring 2025 is Sunday, February 2, 2025, 9 am to 10 pm at the Housing and Residence Life office, Ranger 036.


In the weeks leading up to the Fall term, we will be preparing our spaces for Move-In and wrapping up our summer operations. This means Residence Hall spaces will not be available for students to move into, or leave belongings, prior to Move In.

Students with on-campus employment that starts prior to the academic year, Kick Start participants, International Students, and Fall Sport Athletes, can move in early. Move-in times for these students are directly coordinated by their supervisor/ International Studies/Athletics/group leader and the Housing department. These students should be prepared to live in a temporary space until their Fall housing is ready. The Academic Year Housing and Dining contract for Fall and Spring Housing begins Labor Day weekend, so there is an additional weekly charge to live on campus prior to this time. Fall dining plans are available to use starting August 1. Dining operations are open for limited hours prior to the start of classes.



When you arrive to campus complete the following

STEP 1 – Check In with Housing Staff
Sunday and Monday when you arrive to campus drive to the Student Center Parking Lot A. Follow the signs directing you to the Check In Tent. Drive up to the tents with a photo ID to pick up your room key and your move in packet.

Tuesday when you arrive to campus come to Ranger Hall 036 with a photo ID to verify your room assignment, pick up your room key/ Ranger ID, and get your move in packet.

STEP 2 – Move into your Housing
Drive to your residential community and unload your belongings. Move into your room and meet your RA.

STEP 3 - Attend your Community Meeting
Attend your Community Meeting on Monday to learn about expectations for living on campus and meet others in your hall.
