Spring Move-in

Spring Move-in

Residence Hall Spring Move-in is by appointment only to help ensure a safe, physically distant process. Move-in appointments continue through February 22, 2021.

To schedule an appointment login to the Housing Portal and click Move-In Appointment. Building card access will be activated at the time of your appointment.

Students returning to the residence halls for spring 2021 must have both a COVID-19 negative test result within 10 days of your move-in appointment reported on the Keep Terps Safe portal AND a scheduled move-in appointment to return to campus and have access to the residence hall.


President Pines’ announced information regarding the spring academic calendar on December 8, 2020. As noted, all classes will begin as planned on January 25, 2021. For the first two weeks, undergraduate instruction, with few exceptions, will be conducted entirely online. Thus, we have offered move-in appointment times through Monday, February 22, 2021, for students who wish to delay their campus return. Students may arrive on-campus on their scheduled date/time.

New students will go through the check-in process. Returning residents may directly go to their residence hall room if returning to fall assignment.


New-to-Housing Students

New-to-housing students are invited to move-in in advance of returning students on Thursday, January 21, and Friday, January 22 by appointment only. We encourage new students to return on one of these two days to get settled and participate in the Winter Welcome events. Move-in appointments are available through Monday, February 22.

New-to-housing students should report to their community Service Desk to check-in. Students will receive their room key,, and receive their welcome packet. Students will need to complete their dining hall access biometric scan to access meals. Visit the Dining Services website to learn more.

New-to-housing residents will be able to park and unload belongings near their residence hall. Several wheeled carts for moving belongings will be available, but we highly encourage students to bring a dolly from home to use, as carts are limited.


Returning Residents

Returning residents' move-in will occur on Saturday, January 23, through Monday, February 22 by appointment only. Your move-in appointment and pre-arrival negative COVID-19 test result activate your student ID to give you access to your residence hall. If you come back early without an appointment your access will not work.

Returning residents should plan to complete a curbside drop off to alleviate congestion in the building and support the 4Maryland healthy behaviors.
