Residence hall move-in days are quickly approaching!
Here are five things to get yourself ready for your Move-In Day:
1. Schedule your move-in appointment
Move-in appointments can be scheduled through your Housing Portal under the Schedule an Appointment tab.
Your move-in appointment is scheduled for 10 minutes. This is when you’ll receive your room key and get fully checked in.
After you get your key, you can take whatever time you need to move and get settled into your new space.

2. Get connected
Now is the perfect time to start making connections with your neighbors and new friends.
Be sure to join your residence hall Facebook group. If you have a roommate, reach out to them to make design plans for your room.
Roommate information is also located on the main page of our Housing Portal.
3. Get organized
Let’s face it, moving can be stressful! One way to ease some of that is to make sure you’re organized.
We recommend labeling all your boxes/totes/etc. and pack your vehicle the night before your commute to WSU. This will allow you to check through your items one last time to make sure you’ve gathered everything you need.
We have some recommendations on items to bring with you that might not be as obvious.
4. Review the Housing & Residence life policies
It’s a great time to also brush up on some of the rules of living in the residence halls.
Check out the Housing Policies and FAQs for the Housing and Residence life policies and procedures handbook as well as some answers to students’ frequently asked questions.
5. Enjoy your last few weeks of summer
College is starting soon!
Take these next few weeks to enjoy your time at home with family and friends before moving to Winona and starting your journey here at WSU.
We recommend that students make a plan to stay in Winona the first four to six weeks after move-in. There will be many activities going on where you’ll have the chance to make new friends and really get engaged.
If you’re missing home, make a plan for your family or friends to come visit you in Winona during those first few weeks, so you can show off your new home.
We hope these reminders get you thinking about your move-in day and the next chapter of life you’re about to embark on.
We’re all excited for another year filled with adventures and hope everyone has safe travels to Winona this Fall!
