Please Note:  The following information is for University Housing.  Move-In information for Nexus Proerties can be found at Nexus Move-In


Residential Learning and University Housing is looking forward to the return of residents to campus. This page provides details about the re-designed move-in process, which has been modified to address concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic and meet current public health guidelines and state standards

Move-In Appointments

Appointment selection has ended. Students who did not select were assigned a move-in day and time based on availability. New applicants will be notified of their appointment day/time after being assigned to a room. 

Meals During Move-In Week

Residential students who have purchased a meal plan and are moving to campus beginning on August 20 and after will have the ability to place two on-campus dining orders per day from Glassworks Eatery in Holly Pointe Commons until meal plans begin on Thursday, August 27. Orders will be placed using the Grub Hub app. Click here for information on how to configure your account.

General Move-In Information

To help you be fully prepared, below are some specific details about the move-in process:

  • Move-in appointment times are organized in 2-hour blocks between Thursday, August 20th and Sunday, August 30th.
  • Every resident must select an available appointment time to schedule when they will complete their move-in. The deadline to select your appointment time is Friday, August 14th. If you do not select a time, one will be assigned to you from what is still available.
  • Residents with an appointment time will be emailed an admission ticket and instructions on where to go on Move-in day. Your ticket must be presented at your specific move-in location (either a printed copy or shown on a mobile device). You will not be permitted to proceed to move into your building without a valid admission ticket and arriving on the correct date during your appointment time.  Sample move-in admission ticket
  • You must arrive at your designated appointment time. This will allow us to minimize crowds. If you arrive too early, you will be asked to return at your appointment time. If you arrive late, you may be asked to wait in another area and return when we can accommodate you without overcrowding the move-in process for others.   
  • After you show your move-in admission ticket, you will be directed to proceed and unload your vehicle. Only 1 vehicle will be permitted to unload per resident (extra copies of tickets will NOT allow additional vehicles into the unloading area).
  • In order to avoid crowds, no more than 2 helpers may be present to help a student unload.
  • We ask that you completely unload and move your vehicle as soon as possible before the end of your 2-hour appointment. This will allow us to open up the parking lot for the next group of residents moving in. Please DO NOT leave your vehicle parked any longer than necessary and/or allowed.
  • To comply with state regulations during the COVID-19 pandemic, all persons present are required to wear a mask or cloth face covering over the nose and mouth.
  • We also ask that everyone involved in the process follow posted signs about safety practices in campus buildings, particularly social distancing. Remain 6 feet apart from others in hallways, stairwells and other common areas.
  • High touch surfaces in the buildings will be disinfected regularly. We also encourage you to wash your hands with soap and water before touching surfaces inside buildings, and frequently throughout the day. Hand sanitizer dispensers will also be available. 
  • A limited number of move-in carts will be available to check out in each building, and these will be disinfected between each user. If you have your own dolly or cart that would assist you, we encourage you to bring it.
  • Unfortunately, move-in volunteers WILL NOT be available this year. We know this is an inconvenience, but this limitation is necessary due to the pandemic and to protect the health and safety of everyone involved in the process.
  • Move-in days are often hot and sunny. Wear sun screen and appropriate clothing, and hydrate repeatedly.

Remember to check your Rowan email for confirmation of your appointment time, admission ticket, and details about the process specific to you! Happy Move-In 2020!
