New Students: Fall Move-In
Moving in is an exciting, yet understandably, hectic time for new and returning students alike. In order to accomplish this we have very specific instructions for new students moving in, and we ask that you please follow them to allow everyone the opportunity to have a stress-free move-in process.

Move-In Schedule

The move-in schedule is set on a yearly basis around the academic calendar and is posted as soon as it is finalized. A lot of collaboration between Parking & Transportation, University of Miami Police, Facilities Management, and the Division of Student Affairs goes into planning this one and half day event for our new students.

Move-In Instructions

When students arrive during their scheduled move-in time, park in a designated parking space and not directly in front of residential facilities due to high pedestrian traffic. From there, students should head directly to their residential area and check-in. At that time, the student will receive their Cane Card and gain access to their room. Once the student is checked in to their room, the unloading and move-in process should begin. With carts available to assist with the process, moving in should be relatively stress-free. 

Once students have fully unloaded their vehicles, please move it to a campus parking garage to allow others to park and have the same opportunity to unload.

To assist those moving in to Hecht & Stanford Residential Colleges, "Welcome Stations" located throughout the short-term parking areas can provide information and answer questions, distribute water bottles, and serve as a shuttle stop for those needing assistance moving in or returning to Hecht and Stanford Residential College.

What to Bring

Please consult the Guide to Living on Campus as well as HRL's complete Policies and Procedures to learn more about what items students should and should not bring into the University's residential facilities.
