When can I move into the residence halls?
To support public health guidelines, including physical distancing, Move-In will take place over a 5-day period between Monday, Aug. 17-Friday, Aug. 21.
Can I show up anytime during those days to move in?
Arrivals will be limited to 15 residents per building, per hour between 8 a.m. and 9 p.m. (with breaks from noon-1 p.m. and 5-6 p.m.).
How do I schedule my a move-in date/time?
Visit MyHousing.colostate.edu and select ‘Fall 2020 Move-In Registration’ to schedule your specific move-in date and hour of arrival.
- If your desired timeslot is full, you will need to select another timeslot and plan to arrive accordingly. Your move-in process does not have to be complete within one hour, rather please schedule the hour in which you plan to arrive.
- You may go back into MyHousing up until the day prior to your scheduled arrival to update the date/time.
- If you have not yet received your hall assignment, please wait to schedule a Move-In arrival time until you receive it. All residents who have applied by July 15, will receive their assignments by July 27.
- If your building assignment changes after you have scheduled a time, you do not need to go back into the system and select a new one. Your scheduled time will automatically update to your newly-assigned building.
What should we do if our travel plans do not coincide with our Move-In reservation time?
Residents should adhere to their scheduled arrival time as much as possible. If circumstances arise that prevent this, please contact email@example.com for assistance.
What if it takes me longer than one hour to move into my room?
The move-in process does not have to be completed within one hour, rather we are asking residents to schedule the starting hour in which they plan to arrive. We ask all residents to limit what they bring to campus to make the move-in process as streamlined as possible (no large furniture or futons, we encourage students to rent a microfridge so it is in the room when they arrive, etc.).
Are family members or helpers allowed to assist with move-in?
Guests/Move-In helpers are limited to 2 per resident and are asked to leave campus by the end of Move-In day. Overnight guests are not permitted in the residence halls.
Will there be helpers/volunteers available at the residence hall when I arrive?
Move-In volunteers will not be available this year to provide move-in assistance as in past years. This prevents crowding and adhere to physical distancing guidelines. Residents may choose to bring a personal cart/dolly to help move in their belongings. Housing & Dining Services also has a limited number of carts available for check-out in the lobby and will provide disinfectant wipes to clean before and after use.
Are masks required during Move-In?
All students, guests, and staff are required to wear masks in public spaces on university grounds, including outdoors, at all times.
Are there quarantine/isolation requirements for incoming students prior to arrival?
With just three weeks to go before Move In week, we are looking forward to welcoming you to campus! Two weeks prior to arriving on campus, students (and up to two people helping them move in) should monitor for symptoms and self-isolate as much as possible to limit exposure as everyone arrives at CSU. We are working closely with the CSU Pandemic Preparedness Team to develop plans for COVID-19 testing during Move-In and we will share details as soon as we have a finalized plan. See covidrecovery.colostate.edu/covid-testing/ to learn more.
Are there any items that are not advisable to bring?
This year, large items and furniture such as couches, futons, entertainment systems, large chairs, etc., are prohibited in order to ensure an efficient move-in process and mitigate long lines and crowding. Please also see below that bed lofting is not possible this year, which will limit space for extra furniture items. Smaller furniture such as folding chairs (that are easy to move in/out) are permitted.
Can I have my bed lofted in advance of arrival?
To limit staff entry into rooms this year and support physical distancing, we are eliminating the option of having lofted beds in rooms. All beds will be set to the medium height (which allows for 30” of storage underneath the bed). We also cannot permit students and families to loft beds on their own because it risks damage to the room and/or injury to students if not properly set up.
My roommate and I have decided to purchase a minifridge and microwave. Are those still allowed?
Minifridges and microwaves are allowed; however, we encourage you to rent instead of purchasing. They will be delivered right to your room prior to Move-In and will help expedite the move-in process. More info about how to rent is on our website. housing.colostate.edu/halls/move-in/
Is it okay to have items shipped ahead to my residence hall?
Yes! Residents are encouraged to ship as many items as possible prior to Move-In. More information about shipping and 3rd party vendors is available at housing.colostate.edu/halls/move-in/#shipping
Where can I pick up my RamCard?
Residents can pick up their RamCards in residence hall mailboxes after they check in and get their keys during Move In. If you haven’t already done so, please visit rampix.colostate.edu as soon as possible to submit your RamCard photo and verify your identification with a copy of your US driver license or passport from any country. Doing so before August 14 ensures that your RamCard will be delivered to your hall mailbox. Your RamCard is your CSU ID and your key to campus for food from the dining centers, RamCash purchases, building access across campus, ticket to athletic and cultural events, library card, bus pass, and much more, so it is very important that all residents complete these steps so they can pick up their card when they arrive.
