Frequently Asked Questions

Each student has a 30 minute move in timeslot on a date between September 3-6. That move in day and time may be found on the "My Room Assignment" page in the Housing Portal. This information was also emailed to all students' UWRF email accounts.

This is your 30-minute move-in timeslot when you will unload your vehicle near your residence hall. Once unloaded, the vehicle must be moved to a parking lot and you can continue to unpack at your leisure.

After the car has been moved, you will go inside the hall, show staff your UWRF student ID, get your key, and begin bringing your things inside to your new room.

Each residence hall has a limited number of large red moving carts as well as rubber mallets, which are used to adjust the height or loft the bed.

Those who use the large red moving carts are asked to return them to the lobby in a timely manner to allow others to access the carts.

Students and families are welcome to bring their own dollies, carts, etc.

Whether you are a UWRF student athlete, employee, volunteer, or just a student who needs to move in early, please visit the Early Arrivals webpage when it is active for more information about requesting to move in early.
