Changes to 8/23 Early Move-In for Sellery Residents

For the very small number of Housing student staff scheduled to move into Sellery early on August 23, we are needing to adjust your move-in plan. You may have already received a call about this change. With the renovation work done this summer in Sellery, the official clearance for Sellery to be occupied again has been slightly delayed. On 8/23, you will be able to move your items into your assigned room in Sellery as scheduled, but you will not be able to stay in the room until August 27. Instead, we will be temporarily placing you in a room at Lowell Center until 8/27.

Steps for Move-In on 8/23

  1. Print and bring your personalized move-in parking permit from the My UW Housing portal
  2. Arrive at Sellery at your assigned move-in time and park your vehicle
  3. Follow staff direction to the check-in location to get your room key
  4. Unload your items in your Sellery room
  5. Collect any essential items you may need during your stay at Lowell (clothing, medications, tech, etc.)
  6. Receive a Lowell parking permit from the Sellery desk
  7. Go to the Lowell desk to check into your temporary room

Housing staff will accompany you while you move into Sellery. If you need to leave and return with other items, check in again at the desk for access to your room. After 5:00 p.m. that day, you will not have access again to the building until 8/27.

Lowell Center Information

Lowell Center, located a few blocks from Sellery at 610 Langdon Street, is a campus hotel and conference center that is being used as a residence hall for the 2022-23 academic year. All rooms have typical residence hall amenities. Bed sheets, a blanket, and a bath towel will be provided for your stay at Lowell. You will share your temporary room in Lowell with one other assigned resident. During your stay, you are expected to follow all resident policies and guidelines outlined in the Student Housing Handbook.

Moving Into Sellery on 8/27

On August 27, starting at 8:00 a.m., you will be able to fully move into your permanent room at Sellery. If transportation is needed, Housing will offer a shuttle (minivan) from Lowell to Sellery that day between 11:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. – visit the Lowell desk to request transportation. You will not have an assigned move time on 8/27, but you will need to vacate Lowell by 8:00 p.m. that day.

Sellery Update

While you are dropping off items in your room at Sellery on 8/23, you will see a fair amount of contractor work still in progress. This might include alarm testing, painting, carpet installation, and other finishing work. Work is proceeding very quickly for resident arrival, and the building will look very different when you return on 8/27! We will have at least one available elevator for you to move in your items easily on 8/23, but please bear with us if some things look rough on that day. Renovation work will continue in Sellery throughout the 2022-23 academic year, as we have detailed with you in previous communications.
