MAKING WVU YOUR HOME

Moving in for the first time? Returning to campus for the spring 2021 semester? We have you covered on how to make WVU your home away from home.

Residence hall move-in begins on Monday, January 11 and continues through Saturday, January 16. Students must schedule a time slot for move-in in advance of their arrival on campus.

Students can return/move-in during their scheduled time slot beginning Monday, January 11 through Saturday, January 16. 

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 Monday, January 4.

Scheduling 

The dates for return/move-in are Monday, January 11 and continue through Saturday, January 16. There are time slots for each residence hall on each of these days.

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 return/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 slot.

All Morgantown students taking in-person courses and/or using on-campus resources (e.g., libraries, dining facilities, transportation, etc.) are required to receive a negative COVID-19 test before spring classes start. Information about the testing process, including how to schedule an appointment, is available at the Return to Campus website

Register for a Time Slot 

Beginning Thursday, December 17, you may login in at myhousing.wvu.edu to make your selection. Click on the RETURN/MOVE-IN link at the upper corner of the page and follow the prompts.

If you have extenuating circumstances related to return/move-in, please email reslife@mail.wvu.edu. Exceptions will be granted based upon the circumstances and the availability of time slots.

Move-in Guidelines 

Residents may have ONLY TWO helpers accompany them into their residence hall during the return/move-in process to minimize the number of people in each building.

Per University policy, everyone participating in return/move-in must wear a face mask/face covering and follow physical distancing protocols. West Virginia Governor Jim Justice announced, as of November 14, a face mask/face covering must be worn at all times in indoor, public places. These policies will be enforced. 

Additional information, including what to bring/not to bring, is available at housing.wvu.edu.

MOVE-in FAQ

  • How many helpers can you have during move-in? 

    Residents may have ONLY TWO helpers accompany them into their residence hall during the return/move-in process to minimize the number of people in each building. If you have more than two helpers, they may switch places during your 60-minute time slot. We ask that you strictly adhere to this guideline.  

    Per University policy, everyone participating in return/move-in must wear a mask and follow physical distancing protocols. West Virginia Governor Jim Justice announced, as of November 14, 2020, a face covering must be worn at all times in indoor, public places. These policies will be enforced .

    All helpers are expected to leave their student's room and the building at the end of the 60-minute time slot. 

  • 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.

  • After you move-in, what should you do?

    Resident Assistants will have a floor meeting at some point during the weekend of January 15 - 18.  They will have a list of  students moving in each day and will check in with residents daily as they return/move-in. 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. 

  • Why is there a 60-minute return/move-in time limit? 

    Residents will be expected to complete their return/move-in process, including check-in, unloading and moving their items to their rooms in 60 minutes. To maintain physical distancing, limit the number of people in the building at any one time and provide a schedule to accommodate the 4,000+ students who are returning or moving in, it was necessary to limit the time slots to 60 minutes. 

    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.  

  • What assistance will be available during move-in? Will there be carts? 

    Unfortunately, WVU staff are unable to help move students' belongings into the building due to health and safety guidelines. 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?

    Stu dents can leave the hall and return, however guests/visitors will not be allowed to accompany them back into the hall. Your guests are allowed to be in the building ONLY during your assigned 60-minute return/move-in time slot. You may leave the building but you should plan to be dropped off at the door when you return to your hall.  

Housekeeping Notes:

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
