Moving into the Residence Halls is an exciting experience. To get ready, you can download our 2016 Move-In Guide, or you can request a copy to be mailed to you by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org - please include your name and mailing address. Visit our room information page for a list of items to consider bringing, details about your room, and other tips for living on campus and move-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.
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 near White and Orr 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.
Cowboy Connect, the University of Wyoming's New Student Transition Program, is designed especially for incoming students to make connections on campus. Each activity offers important information and experiences that will give you a leg up as you begin college. Visit the Cowboy Connect page for a schedule and more information.
