Fall Move-In

August 27 – 29, 2024

University Housing Fall Move-In dates will be August 27-29, 2024. A few residents of approved student groups, including Housing student employees, may receive an earlier move-in date to participate in required trainings or orientation activities.

Students will receive their pre-assigned move-in date and time when they receive their room assignment this summer, so we recommend students waiting to make travel plans until they know their move-in date. Assigned days/times allow us to spread out activity evenly to ensure available resources and parking. Depending on the availability of open slots, if you’d like to request a change to your assigned move-in date/time because it does not fit your schedule, log in to My UW Housing to select a new one by August 28. Please note that you will need to delete your current move-in time slot prior to signing up for a new one.

Note: Residents who are unassigned will get their room assignment before move-in. We continue to assign students daily.
