There will be volunteers in brightly-colored Chancellor’s Move-in Crew shirts. They are there to assist with your move-in. There will also be a very limited number of blue carts and red wagons for your use. We ask that these moving items DO NOT go across the road and once it is empty that it is returned immediately to the unloading zone. You may opt not to use Lot H to unload, but the volunteer crew will not be located elsewhere. Feel free to bring your own moving hand truck.


If your assigned move-in day does not work for you, please contact for move-in change requests. If you need to move-in early, you may incur additional charges.


Fall classes begin on Monday, August 21st!


Simplified Recap: Park in Lot K, go check-in with ID, go back to vehicle, post temporary parking pass, drive over to Lot H, unload (not park), re-park vehicle across street, go back to items and move-in. Drink water.
