We have arranged for two move-in options to provide you and your family with flexibility and to allow for a smooth move-in process with as little traffic congestion as possible. All move-in times will be by appointment only.
You must make an appointment through the Housing Portal, regardless of which move-in option you choose. You will be able to make an appointment beginning Monday, July 19, at 9:00 AM.
Students who arrive without an appointment will not be able to move in and will need to schedule an appointment for another day.
If you have questions about the move-in process, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your full name, 9-digit UID number, and your question or call (301) 314-2100.
The “Set-Up and Go” option provides you the opportunity to schedule an appointment to move belongings into your residence hall room in advance of the residence halls opening for fall semester; when there is less traffic, competition for parking and elevators, and provide students the opportunity to get your room set up in advance of move-in weekend.
We strongly encourage any student who lives within a reasonable driving distance of the University of Maryland to select this option.
By selecting this option, you will come to campus to prepare your residence hall room in advance and then return to campus for the semester at their assigned time.
This option is intended for students who live a further distance from the campus and for whom splitting their move-in into two trips would present a hardship.
If you select this option, you will move in all your belongings during the main move-in period and begin your stay in your room at that time as well.
The health and safety of our community are our fundamental priorities. We are committed to ongoing work to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. COVID-19 vaccinations are required for all students, faculty and staff returning to campus this fall semester, as announced by the University System of Maryland Chancellor.
Students who are not in compliance with the campus' vaccination requirement will not be allowed to move in or live in University-owned residence halls. Confirm your vaccination status at Keep Terps Safe Portal.
For more information about the vaccine or if you have questions about the requirement, please visit the COVID-19 Vaccine Information webpage to review a list of frequently asked questions. You may also email email@example.com with additional questions.
