Undergraduate Move-In And Move-Out


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 August 23-27, 2023.

In mid-July, students will be contacted 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.


If you are part of a program that moves in early (for example, the U-M Marching Band), please contact your program directly for move-in details.


  • Move in Maps (available July) and a  good navigation app (like Waze) can assist you in navigating to Ann Arbor. Note there are traffic detours in place during move in.

  • 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.


  • Use your Mcard( if you have one)to enter the building and follow signs to the check-in location.

  • Sanitized moving carts are available for your use.

  • If you are unexpectedly delayed and arrive late, follow the posted signs for assistance.


  • After unloading, please move vehicles away from the building to post check-in parking.

  • Be sure to complete your Room Inventory Form (RCI). If your room requires any repairs, report them using the online FIXIT form. Forms should be returned to the community center within 48 hours of your move-in.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!
