Move-in Process

Please conduct a self-check for COVID-19 symptoms before coming to campus, and review the CDC Travel Guidance before traveling here. If you have symptoms, stay home and consult with a medical professional.

Arrive during your check-in time slot outside of the Housing Office (we are in the Matthews Success Hub, located between Matthews Hall and Cascadia House) to retrieve your room key. Please ask your moving helpers (family members or friends) to wait in the car during check-in.
Stay tuned for guidelines on any applicable move-in safety procedures, such as:

  • Any room/elevator capacity limits to be mindful of
  • Time allotted for move-in
  • Number of individuals who can help you move in

We encourage students to limit the items they bring to campus to minimize the contact points within their room, decrease clutter and make moving into the hall easier. For information on what items you should consider bringing to campus, please visit our webpage.

Early Arrivals

Few early arrival times are allowed. Fall athletes, Jumpstart leaders and participants, and those who have already received permission to return early will be issued a move-in date and time by their coach or event coordinator, which Housing will confirm via an email to your WU email.

First-Year Students

Your move-in day is Tuesday. August 24, 2021. On your move-in day, you will meet your Resident Advisor (RA), Opening Days (OD) Leader and Colloquium Associate (CA). They are available to answer questions and help you find your way. You will receive a packet of information upon check-in that includes an Opening Days schedule and information on where to go next.

Returning Students

Move-in will begin on Saturday, August 28, 2021. You can move in beginning at 9a on Saturday, and you will not be asked to select a check-in time. If you arrive after hours (i.e. after our office closes), you will need to pick up your key from the Service Center, located in the University Services Building, by calling Campus Safety at 503-370-6911.

Graduate Students
