Move-In Process

When arriving to campus, during regular check-in hours, check-in with an RA located in or around the residence hall. If checking in outside of regular check-in hours, please contact your Quad/Area office. You will receive your key and SBU ID and can begin the process of moving your belongings into your new home. Hand trucks are available in residence buildings for convenience, please be ready to leave some form of ID in exchange for the cart. During the Fall move-in there will also be students volunteering with Welcome Wagon to aid during the move in process. Feel free to ask them any questions, whether it's helping to bring your belongings to the room or asking for directions, they are eager to help!

***When moving on to campus do not leave vehicles unattended in non-designated parking areas, please unload and park in an appropriate location. This helps avoid congestion and keeps the move-in process quick and safe.***
