Move-In 2017

 

Welcome to Campus

We are glad that you are here! Living on campus allows you the opportunity to meet many people and create lifelong friendships, participate in a wide variety of academic, educational and social events, and learn to live
in a culturally diverse environment – all while enjoying the conveniences of living on campus. We hope the place you live will become your home for the next nine months. The residence halls at the University of Iowa are more than just a place to live. In addition to secure and comfortable surroundings, the halls provide you with a glimpse of what living independently is all about: interacting with people from various backgrounds, taking responsibility for personal behavior, and learning how to have fun – and get along – with friends and neighbors. From classes, to interesting programs, to spontaneous fun, the residence halls at the University of Iowa provide an exciting living-learning experience on campus. Below you will find more information about Move-In 2017.

Move-In Steps

When you arrive on campus, our volunteers will be outside to help you complete the check-in dashboard slip and direct you where to park.

• Family members: We’ll ask you to stay with your vehicle at all times, and please make sure to know your student’s room assignment information.
• Our move-in volunteers will begin to help you unload your belongings and bring them up to your room.
• Students: Have your student ID ready and head inside your residence hall to the check-in tables.
• You will then be issued your room key and update your emergency contact information.
• Meet up with your belongings and begin to unpack!
• Family members: Once your vehicle is empty, we will ask you to move your car to a different location so we can get ready for the next group of students for move-in!

Vehicle and Parking Information

Students are allowed to bring one vehicle with them for move in, so plan accordingly. Due to limited space around the halls, we also ask that you do not bring trailers during move-in. If it is essential for you to bring a trailer, we ask that you arrive after 6pm on your designated move-in day. Volunteers will not be available after 5pm. Long-term parking is not available at the residence halls. The driver should remain in the car and proceed to the Hawkeye Commuter Lot (Hawk Lot) located near Mormon Trek and Melrose Avenue. Navigational signage will be visible along the route as a guide.

Once the driver has arrived at the Hawk Lot, a free shuttle will be available and will make stops at each neighborhood. For real-time bus schedules download the mobile app Bongo, or visit www.ebongo.org.
