Information about move-in day, including routes to halls, parking and more can be found on this page. Scroll for details.
When can you move in?
Students can move-in during their scheduled time slot between Thursday, August
12 through Saturday, August 14. Because of WVU's ongoing response to COVID-19 and
prioritizing the health and safety of our students and staff, residents
must schedule a time to move in. If a resident arrives without a scheduled time slot for that day and time, they
will be denied access to the building. No exceptions can be made for those who show up without a scheduled time for
move-in. Log in at
myhousing.wvu.edu to schedule a time slot for move-in; the deadline is Wednesday,
There are time slots for each residence hall every day, beginning Thursday, August 12 and continuing through Saturday, August 15. Time slots are three hours long; residents will be expected to complete their move-in during this time frame.Three time slots are available daily at 8 a.m., 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.
Why is there a move-in time limit?
Residents will be expected to complete their move-in process, including check-in, unloading and moving their items to their rooms within three hours. To maintain physical distancing, limit the number of people in the building at any one time and provide a schedule to accommodate the 4,500 students who are moving in, it was necessary to limit the time slots to.
Residents should check-in at their residence hall desk - please arrive at your scheduled move-in time. Once you have checked in, you can unload your car and bring in your belongings.
How many helpers can you have during move-in?
Residents may have helpers accompany into their residence hall during the move-in process. Per University policy, everyone participating in move-in who is not vaccinated for COVID-19 must wear a mask and follow physical distancing protocols. These policies will be enforced.
How do you get your Mountaineer ID?
Mountaineer ID cards will be available for students to pick up at their residence hall front desk when they check-in as part of the move-in process. If you haven't submitted a photo for an ID please do so as soon as possible at idphoto.wvu.edu. You'll be prompted to login to complete the process.
What assistance will be available during move-in? Will there be carts?
Several four-sided carts (similar to those used in hotels for laundry) will be available at each hall during check-in.
Can you leave your residence hall after move-in for shopping or have a meal and then return?
After you move-in, what should you do?
Resident Assistants will have floor meetings each day during move-in. They will
have a list of students moving in each day and will send emails with
information about meetings and any other updates. Residents should check their MIX email account and watch for signs posted
on their floor. There will be staff at the front desk of each residence hall
who can answer questions.
A few reminders..
- Register your vaccination status at myhousing.wvu.edu no later than August 1.
- If you have not been vaccinated, check vaccines.gov for available locations and times. WVU is encouraging all students, faculty and staff to be vaccinated so that campus can safely reopen this fall. Individuals who are vaccinated won’t be subject to testing or quarantine and/or isolation if exposed to someone with COVID-19. Here is a list of reasons to consider when deciding.
- Additional information, including protocols for COVID-19 testing and quarantine for those who haven’t been vaccinated, what to bring/not to bring, parking during move-in and routes to use when traveling to campus will be announced over the next few weeks. This will be sent via email, shared on WVU’s social media accounts and posted at housing.wvu.edu.
