Welcome to the University of Maryland!

Moving into 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.

Move-in occurs Thursday, August 23 through Sunday, August 26. Unless otherwise listed, check-in times are from 9:00 am to 8:00 pm (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!
