MAKING WVU YOUR HOME

Moving in for the first time? Returning to campus for fall 2022 semester? We have you covered on how to make WVU your home away from home.

Residence hall move-in begins on Thursday, August 11 and continues through Saturday, August 13. Students must schedule a time slot for move-in in advance of their arrival on campus.

Students can move-in during their scheduled time slot between Thursday, August 11 through Saturday, August 13. 

Move-in registration is now open at myhousing.wvu.edu. 

Students must reserve a time slot to ensure as smooth a move-in process as possible for all residents. You'll log in to our web portal to schedule a time slot for move-in; the deadline to register is Wednesday, August 3.

There are time slots for each residence hall every day, beginning Thursday, August 11 and continuing through Saturday, August 13.

Move-in Tips:

  • Use small boxes/containers to make carrying easier.
  • Bring only a single vehicle if at all possible.
  • We have four seasons – consider bringing items you will need for late summer/fall and take those home with you at Thanksgiving break, and bring winter items when you return.
  • Pre-order your MicroFridge. Check with your roommate – you can split the cost – and you won’t have to carry it to your room. This is the only microwave approved for use in WVU residence halls. 
  • OCM has a wide selection of linens: sheets, blankets, towels, and more. Order from them and they will deliver to your residence hall – you’ll have more room in your car for you and your family!
  • You’ll want to personalize your space; try to connect with your roommate before you arrive to avoid duplication. You may want to wait until you are on campus to make your final purchases so you have a good feel for the space you've been assigned.
  • Decorations are best hung with products that do not damage walls. Removing 3M Command strips improperly may damage plaster and paint which will result in damage charges. 
  • NO CANDLES. Please don’t bring them as we’ll ask you to send them back home or discard them. 

What to Bring and What not to Bring

Check out the list of suggested items to bring with you to your new home away from home. Coordinate with your roommate about what they are bringing and how  to maximize the space in your room.  

Please note: the only microwave approved for use in residence halls is a MicroFridge, available for rent through MyMicroFridge

Residence Hall Opening & Closing Dates

University housing closes during breaks and reopens at the beginning of each semester. View the opening and closing dates.

What About Dining?

Dining plans will be active when you move in. Students living in a WVU residence hall must have a dining plan, so be sure to review your options and make the choice that best fits your lifestyle....and appetite! 

Billing

Bills were assessed and sent to your MIX email account during the first week of July if you have a balance due. Your bill was determined based upon your room assignment at that time. For information about your bill or payment, contact  The WVU Hub.

CHECKING IN AND GRABBING YOUR KEY

Once you pull up to your residence hall, you can head inside to the front desk and check-in. We ask that only you go and grab the key while your family/friends stay at the car and begin unloading.

  • At the front desk you will formally check-in, receive any keys (if appropriate), pick-up your Mountaineer ID (if you haven’t received it yet), and receive a copy of the room condition report to review and submit feedback.
  • After check-in is complete, you will obtain a cart, if needed, and head back to your car to begin moving in.

UNLOADING & MOVING YOUR VEHICLE

Unloading

Please unload your belongings and begin taking items to your room. Once your vehicle is unloaded, you will move your vehicle out of the unloading zone as quickly as possible. Please include contact information on the parking tag you were given at check-in and hang it from your vehicle’s rearview mirror. If your vehicle is left unattended for an extended period, it may be towed; we will attempt to contact you first. 

Parking

You may park your vehicle in a WVU-designated parking area are leaving the unloading zone. Volunteers and University Police can provide directions to short-term parking areas. These short-term lots (2-hour maximum) are busy all day, so as soon as you have completed move-in, please move your vehicle off-campus (the Coliseum or a downtown parking garage). Do not park in any restricted areas, handicap-accessible spaces, private lots, etc. You could be fined and/or towed. 

moving in

We will provide a move-in cart for you to use to load your items into (similar to those used in hotels for laundry). There is a possibility they will be all signed out, so we also recommend bringing a dolly, cart and/or other items to successfully move you into your room. 

It’s important for you to unload your vehicle and get everything into your room before you begin unpacking and decorating. Don’t stress—you have plenty of time to make your room your own! You can always go shopping to purchase what you need and order items from online and get them shipped to your front desk.

WHAT WILL BE IN YOUR ROOM

In your room you will find all your room furnishings including a study desk, chair, dresser, drapes, desk lamps, wastebaskets, and your bed with mattress. To find the room dimensions for you hall visit our Residence Hall page, click your hall and scroll down until you find the room dimensions link. (each hall has their own room dimensions page so it is important you choose your hall.)

Note--  If you have a multi-positional bed, please do not use the “top” rung on the bed ends because the frame may be damaged when this setting is used (keep in mind that not all beds are adjustable). Many students are charged for damages that occur to the frames. We apologize for any inconvenience.

If you want to raise your bed, you may use the 6 in. plastic risers which can be found at any mass merchandiser.

next steps

Please take all trash and recyclables to the dumpsters located outside your residence hall. 

  • Please BREAK DOWN boxes before placing them in the recyclables unit. Improper use of trash chutes (if in hall) during move-in causes damage and may clog the chute.
  • Return your cart to the front desk area so other students can use it to move-in their items.

Keep an eye out for posted materials from your RA regarding your floor meetings and Welcome Week meetings.
