Welcome to the University of Maryland!

Moving in to your on-campus residence hall room, suite, or apartment is an exciting yet hectic time for new and returning students alike. Our Department of Resident Life staff will do our very best to make the move-in process as easy and simple as possible in order to help you get settled into your new home away from home.

Residence Hall move-in occurs over a four day period, Thursday, August 22 through Sunday, August 25.

New residents are invited to move in on Thursday or Friday between the hours of 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. A specific move-in appointment time will be listed with your Fall housing assignment information on July 24, 2019.

Returning residents are scheduled to move in on Saturday – Sunday, August 24-25 and will receive a specific check in time via their housing portal on July 24, 2019. Check-in times are from 9:00am to 8:00pm (check-in after posted hours are permitted, however, unloading zone and parking accommodations may be limited).

Please adhere to your designated move-in date and time to capitalize on added staff support, traffic management, and parking availability.

We look forward seeing you at your new home on campus!
