Move-in is one of the most exciting days of your college life; it is the day you’ll make UWRF your official new home! It can also be one of the most nerve-wrecking times, as you prepare to pack your belongings and maybe even leave home for the first time. As you prepare to leave for campus, make sure to review our suggestions for what to bring, and see what we already provide in your room in Your New Home.

"My Move-In Day experience was busy and chaotic, just what I expected it to be. When I obtained my key and first opened my dorm room door I was wowed that this is where I am going to be staying my first year at UWRF. It was a very fun, new, and crazy experience."
