Move-In Day

We will be adhering to CDC guidelines regarding physical distancing; therefore, we will be expanding Move-in Day over the course of several days. Based on your housing placement, we assigned your Move-In Day/Time.

Dollies and carts will be available for limited use on your move-in day, but we will not be able to offer volunteer and/or staff to assist with your unloading. Students will be allowed 2 guests (no children) to assist with their unloading and unpacking, during their assigned date and time. Outside guest assistance will not be permitted after your move-in window has closed.

To complete check-in, you will:

  1. Arrive on campus during your assigned time and follow the traffic and parking directions to your building
  2. Check-in with the Housing staff in your assigned lobby (This will be a contactless process)
  3. Unload in the designated unloading zone (you will have limited time in the unloading zone)
    1. Follow directional signage on the use of elevators and stairs
  4. Before you start unpacking, move your vehicle into a student parking space. During move-in days Callaway Parking Lot, and the parking spots in the front of Jones and Kincannon Halls are for Unloading only.

Face Coverings

All faculty, staff, and students are required to wear face coverings (not N-95 or medical masks as those should be reserved for healthcare professionals) unless walking alone in an outdoor space or working alone in a personal office space. Individuals visiting campus are also subject to the same face-covering requirement. For more information visit: https://www.muw.edu/renewal/health.
