Fall Move In

FIRST YEAR STUDENT MOVE-IN

First-year student Move-in Day for all first-year students is Wednesday, August 22, 2018. Students and their families will be given access to their room when they check-in during their time slot on Wednesday, August 22, 2018. In order to provide a unified New Student Orientation experience, first year students are not permitted to move-in, get room access or drop off belongings before their time slot on Wednesday, August 22, 2018.

We have organized procedures to help make the day go as smoothly as possible. Each student will be assigned a designated move-in time-slot. Our Tulane University Police Department officers and some NOPD officers will direct traffic from the perimeter of campus through the unloading queues and on to the parking locations. ROTC cadets work with Mail Services and help transport students' items from the shipping trailers and Mailroom to the drop off locations at the residence halls. Upperclass student Move-In Day volunteers will help unload vehicles and take students' belongings to their residence hall rooms. Housing and Residence Life staff will manage check-in, keys, and front door access. 

Please plan to arrive on Wednesday, August 22, 2018 during your designated move in time-slot.

Students who are facing extreme circumstances and cannot arrive on Wednesday, August 22 must submit an Early Move-In Request Form by June 1, 2018.

Early in the summer, Housing and Residence Life will post the Fall 2018 Move-In Guides and send them to students via their Tulane e-mail. 

RETURNING STUDENT MOVE-IN

Returning student Move-in Day for all returning students is Saturday, August 25, 2018. 

Students who are facing extreme circumstances and cannot arrive on Saturday, August 25 or later must submit an Early Move-In Request Form by June 1, 2018.

Returning students may volunteer for the TU Move Krewe and move-in on Monday, August 20, 2018. Volunteers must register online by July 1, 2018.

TRANSFER AND INTERNATIONAL STUDENT MOVE-IN

Transfer students and new international students, participating in their respective orientations, who have been assigned a room on campus for the 2018-2019 academic year are approved to move-in on the day before their designated orientation sessions. You will be able to check in beginning at 9am on your move-in day. Your specific check in information and location will be emailed to you by Housing and Residence Life in early August.
