New Students: Fall Move-In

Housing & Residential Life does its very best to make the process as easy and simple as possible in order to help get all residents settled into their new home away from home.

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.

"Cruise Ship Move-In"

In order to provide a convenient and stress-free move-in experience, the University of Miami partners with University and Student Services (USS). As the exclusive provider of “Cruise Ship Move-In” for college campuses, USS will bring all your belongings from your car directly to your room (for residents of Hecht, Stanford and Eaton only). This gives you more time to focus on what’s important, getting settled into your room.

Watch the video below for a brief overview of Cruise Ship Move-In.
