Tips for Moving In for Fall!

  • Move-in day tends to be quite a hot day in South Georgia! Please bring water and sunscreen. Remember to pace yourself throughout the day.
  • Be patient with the process. Whether you are a first-year resident or a returning student, there are a lot of students moving in at the same time. 
  • Check-in during your assigned times. Early arrivals must wait until their designated time.
  • Avoid bringing trailers, U-Haul trucks, or more than 2 cars. 
    • Moving trucks or trailers are not necessary. If it cannot fit into 1 or 2 cars it probably won't fit in your room
    • Our Parking lots are quite full during move-in and we are unable to accomadte them
  • You will be given two parking passes
    • Passes will need to be placed on the driver's side of the dashboard
  • Students should label all of their boxes beforehand to avoid them being dropped off to the wrong location or lost. 
  • Avoid bringing family pets during move-in.  As mentioned before, it is a very hot day and we do not permit animals inside the residence halls.

Note*The Office of Housing and Residence Life does not approve requests for Emotional Support Animals on campus or allow animals that are not approved inside of our residence halls.

Please visit the Access Office website for information about how to get an Emotional Support Animal approved and the process to do so.
