Moving In

This page will be updated as details of the Fall 2022 move-in plan are announced, so please be sure to check it periodically. When we are closer to the begining of the Fall semester, students who have been assigned to housing will be able to schedule a move in appointment through their Housing portal. 

Check-in procedures

BEFORE ARRIVING TO CAMPUS

  • Review your scheduled move-in date and time.
  • Pack water and snacks - especially if it will be a hot and humid day.
  • Update your emergency contact information by logging into OneCampus.

WHEN YOU ARRIVE ON CAMPUS

  • Face masks are optional in indoor spaces regardless of vaccine status. This includes classrooms, common spaces, dining areas unless someone is eating, or other indoor areas where multiple people can gather or engage. All students living in residence halls are strongly encouraged to wear face masks in hallways, lounges and common spaces, as well as when visiting another resident (room other than their own). 
  • Follow the signs that guide you to your designated drop off location.      
  • Report to the desk in your residence hall. It's usually right inside of the residence hall. 
  • Have a photo ID ready.

AT CHECK-IN 

  • At this point, you will be given your room key and a room condition form to take to your room to complete. Make sure to add any and all pre-existing damages in your room to the form and then sign and return it. You will be charged for any damages to the room or furniture when you move out if those damages are not listed on the form, so be thorough before turning it back in.
  • You will be issued your room keys and other pertinent information.
  • Once you have unloaded your belongings, please move your vehicle to desinaged parking locations.

AS YOU ARE MOVING INTO YOUR ROOM

  • Remember, a lot of other people will be moving in too, so take your time and be patient.
  • Take trash and recyclables to the designated collection points.
  • Report any issues you may be having with cable, electrical outlets, or logging into the computer network to the check-in desk. The responsible departments will have crews traveling around the halls to address issues throughout the day.

AFTER YOU HAVE MOVED IN

  • Take trash and recyclables to the designated collection points.
  • If you haven't met your RA yet, take a moment to introduce yourself to them.
  • Be sure to attend your floor meeting.

Apartment Check-In

  • If you plan to arrive with a trailor or more than one vehicle, please park your trailer or extra vehicle at your apartment and take your smallest vehicle to the check in location. 
  • Be sure to only park in University lots (Radford University parking sign with purple stripe).  If you park in non-university lots, your vehicle may be towed.  The University is not responsible for towing resulting from parking in non-university lots.
  • At the check in location you will be provided with your apartment keys (one for the main door and one for your bedroom) and a room condition form to take to your unit to complete. Make sure to add any and all pre-existing damages in your room to the form and then sign and return it to 300 E. Main St.. You will be charged for any damages to the room or furniture when you move out if those damages are not listed on the form, so be thorough before turning it back in.
