Selecting an arrival time

On May 22, 2024, the Fall 2024 Move-In Appointment Scheduler process will be available in the housing portal. Students will be required to go through the process to select a move-in date and time. Please note: students will only be shown dates they are eligible for based on their student demographic. Students will be able to reschedule and cancel their time slot, but you must have a final time selected by the deadline. The deadline to select a time slot is July 17, 2024, at noon for Graduates and August 7, 2024, at noon for Undergraduates.

**Resident Assistants, students currently in summer housing, Southampton residents, and those expecting to arrive early by a sponsoring office to assist with Weeks of Welcome, Campus Operations, or Athletics do not need to participate in the portal selection process.**
