Move In

Welcome to WVU and to your home on campus!


The staff in the Office of Housing and Residence Life is looking forward to welcoming you to WVU. Here is some information that may be helpful as you plan your trip to campus. 

Spring 2018 Move-In

When you arrive at your residence hall, you may check-in at the main desk. Staff will be there to answer any questions you may have and direct you to your new home. 


Here is a list of suggested things to bring to your new home away from home. Don’t forget to talk to your roommate about what they are bringing (or might have if they are already in residence) and how to maximize the space in your room.

New Student Orientation 

To help start the semester off right, we invite freshmen and transfer students to participate in New Student Orientation.  For more information  Click Here. 

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.
