Undergraduate Marygrove Move-In

We’re excited to welcome you to your new home on campus! Time to start planning and get ready to move in. Mark your calendar for student move-in on August 22, 2024.

As you sign your housing contract, you will be able to select a specific time slot for a day and time to move-in from time slots available. To smooth your move and ease traffic around the halls, all move-in times will be by your pre-selected time slots only.

Before you arrive

Move-in Day

  • Move in Maps (available July) and a good navigation app (like Waze) can assist you in navigating.
  • Florent Gillet address is 8425 W McNichols Rd, Detroit, MI 48221.
  • Arrive during your assigned move in time slot and day for a smooth move-in experience.
  • Staff will be ready to greet you, assist with directing traffic, and guide you to the check-in station.
  • Display your unloading permit in your car window.


  • Follow signs to the check-in location.
  • You will need  your Mcard at Check-in.  If you have not received your Mcard yet, you will receive your Mcard at check-in.  Please bring another form of picture identification to check-in.
  • Moving carts are available for your use.
  • If you are unexpectedly delayed and arrive late, follow the posted signs for assistance.

After Check-in

  • After Unloading, please move vehicles away from the building to post check-in parking. 
  • Be sure to complete your Room Inventory Form (RCI) within two days of your arrival. Residents are responsible for the condition of the space upon move-out so this form is an important one to complete.  Visit the MHousing policies page for further information about what to expect regarding the condition of your living space at move-out.
  • Begin unpacking and getting settled into your room.  We are happy to have you on campus and have a great semester. Go Blue!


Our package rooms are unable to accept packages prior to August 26, so plan for your packages to arrive a little after you do. 

Refrigerator and Microwave Rental

If you would like to rent an appliance for your room, including refrigerators and microwaves, contact College Products.   Select University of Michigan and then Marygrove-Florent Gillet as your residence hall to ensure correct delivery. Please order by August 1st to guarantee delivery before move-in.

Bed Lofting

Your modular furniture can be set up in any of four approved configurations. You may be happy with your current configuration, but if you want to make a change, please review and follow all safety requirements and assembly instructions. For safety reasons, only the configurations presented here are allowed. You can check out which residence halls and apartments have which style of modular furniture here

If you need assistance to have your furniture lofted or arranged before you arrive, please contact College Products. When ordering, select University of Michigan and then Marygrove-Florent Gillet as your residence hall. 

Textbook Purchasing

Textbooks ordered through the University’s course materials partner, Barnes & Noble, can be shipped for free to their locations in the Michigan Union and Pierpont Commons. Look for a link in Wolverine Access where you can find your course schedule. Free shipping to other locations on all orders over $49.

Renter's Insurance

We recommend that you register and insure all of your personal belongings. First, check if your belongings are covered by an existing homeowners policy. If not, consider purchasing an individual policy. One option is GradGuard™, a service provided by Next Generation Insurance Group, LLC. It’s a specific Renters Insurance Plan designed especially for students.
