MOVE-IN 2019

Arrival & Check-In

When you arrive, you should check-in at the desk of your assigned hall to verify that you have arrived at UW, get access to your room and mailbox key. If you will be living in the Honors House, you will check-in at Downey hall and then a staff member will escort to the Honors House.

After physically checking-in, a resident assistant (RA) will walk you to your room, ensure that the door access works, and then complete a room condition sheet with you. It is important for you to complete this process to ensure you are not charged for an improper checkout when you leave. A copy of the completed form is filed at the hall office for staff use.

Once you've visited your room with an RA, move your belongings from your vehicle to your room. Carts are available at the cart stations in front of the Residence Halls. When you've moved your belongings into your room, please move your car to a remote lot (or "R" Permit lot if you have a permit) before unpacking and setting up your room.

Early Arrivals

Residence hall move-in will start on Friday, August 30 2019 at 7 a.m. For those students who are part of a group that is moving into the halls earlier than this date, please work with your group coordinator to make these arrangements. For all other students requesting an early move-in date, please email with your name, residence hall and room number, the date you would like to move-in, as well as a brief description of why you need to arrive earlier than August 30. Individual requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Students moving in early should check into the front desk of their assigned residence hall.
