Moving In

Move in Fall 2021 will once again be by appointment only beginning Tuesday, August 17 through Saturday, August 21.  Students who have been assigned to housing can schedule a move in appointment. Go to OneCampus, select Housing, then select Room Forms.  Appointments must be scheduled at least 48 hours in advance and cancelled at least 24 hours in advance.  If you are unable to find a time that works for your family, please call our office (540)831-5375 for assistance.

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

  • Effective August 16, 2021, face masks are required 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). Partially vaccinated or unvaccinated residents are expected to wear face masks while anywhere except their assigned room. Family members and guests assisting students with move in must wear a face mask when inside residential buildings.
  • Follow the signs that guide you to your designated drop off location.      
  • Report to the check-in table in your residence hall. It's usually outside of the front door or inside the lobby.
  • Have a photo ID ready.

AT YOUR HALL'S CHECK-IN TABLE

  • 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.
  • After collecting your key, go to the nearest information/volunteer tent to check out a bin and pick up your temporary parking pass.
  • Once you have unloaded your belongings, please move your vehicle to desinaged parking locations (lots E, U and Z).
  • A shuttle will run between these lots and main campus for your convenience.

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 outside 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 outside to the designated collection points.
  • If you need to do some shopping, stop by the check-in tables for assistance and directions to local businesses, restaurants, and gas stations.
  • If you haven't met your RA yet, take a moment to introduce yourself to them.
