MAKING WVU YOUR HOME

Moving in for the first time? Returning to campus for fall 2018 semester? We have you covered on how to make WVU a home away from home.

Operation Move-In is set for Saturday, August 11. It’s going to be a very busy day around Morgantown, but everyone on campus is working to make move-in as easy as possible.

When can you move in on Saturday?

Students must move-in during the time slots listed. Please don’t arrive early – these time slots help eliminate congestion around the residence halls. Move-in time slots are based on students’ birthdays.

First-year Honors students should plan to arrive Friday, August 10. View the Honors move-in schedule.

Can you move in before Saturday?

Some students are able to move-in earlier because they are involved in WVU-affiliated programs that require them to be on campus. You will be notified by the specific program that you are eligible for early move-in. Please note that there is an early arrival charge which will be applied to your housing bill after classes begin. Students arriving early must check in at the main desk of their residence hall. 

If arriving before Friday, August 10, (Honors check-in day) parking is not reserved. Be mindful of where you park; there are short term lots around the Downtown and Sunnyside neighborhoods that will be at normal parking rates.     

Returning students can move-in early to help with move-in!

Volunteer to assist on Saturday, August 11, and you may move-in on Friday, August 10 from 3 - 5 p.m. with no additional charge if you check-in and complete your volunteer shift. Limited spaces are available; registration closes on Sunday, August 5. Register to Volunteer for Move-in

Will helpers be available during move-in?

Volunteers will be available on Saturday, August 11 to help unload vehicles, carry items, give directions, answer questions and provide encouragement! Several four-sided carts (similar to those used in hotels for laundry) will be available at each hall during check-in.

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 by August 1, and it will be waiting for you when you arrive. Check with your roommate – you can split the cost – and you won’t have to carry it to your room. 
  • 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; wait until you arrive so you can coordinate with your roommate (avoid duplication!) and have a good feel for the space you’ve been assigned.
  • Decorations are best hung with approved poster “putty.” 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

Follow the Routes to Eliminate Congestion

You’ve packed the car and you’re ready for the drive to Morgantown. You may have a favorite route into town and know your way around campus, however we ask that you use the routes listed below as they have been designed to minimize traffic crossover. Find your community - Evansdale, Downtown or Sunnyside - and select your hall to find the detailed directions. 


Late Arrival Procedure

If a student is not able to arrive on campus by the first day of classes, they must contact the Housing Assignments Office at 304-293-2811. If a student does not contact the Housing Assignments Office, their room assignment could be changed.
