We are excited to welcome you all to campus this spring. Our staff has been working hard planning for your arrival. We have put together some information about what to expect during move-in along with some tips about how to be successful throughout the process. With that we do encourage the following in order to maintain a safe and smooth transition for all students and families:

  • Pack only what you need as you will have time over Spring Break to bring more belongings if desired.
  • Label all boxes, totes, and tubs with your name and room number.
  • We do not permit trailers or U-hauls as the parking lots at the residence halls cannot accommodate them.
  • Do not bring pets during move-in as we do not allow pets into the residence halls.
  • Download the What to Bring Checklist here
  • Use the campus map to locate your residence hall

Move-in for Spring 2023 will be on Friday, January 6th, 2023, and Saturday, January 7th, 2023 from 9 am-6 pm on both days for new students. You will go straight to your assigned hall, where you will be able to pick up your key and complete the appropriate paperwork in order to move in. You do not have to sign up for a particular time, as we will be prepared to have you move in that day. If you arrive after the times mentioned above, please call HEART at 229-253-4000. Returning students can begin moving in Thursday, January 5th, 2023. 

Please contact the Office of Housing and Residence Life if you have any questions. You can email at Housing@valdosta.edu or call at 229-333-5920.
