Arriving to Campus

When you arrive to campus during your scheduled move-in appointment time, complete the following steps.

  • Have your UWRF student ID as it is needed to move in.
  • Park in the unloading zone outside of your residence hall.
  • Wear a face covering and go inside of your residence hall to check in. This is when you will receive a room key and Room Condition Report (RCR).
  • While you are inside checking in, your guests will unload the vehicle in the assigned area. You may only be parked in the unloading zone during your scheduled 30-minute window. Any guests accompanying you must remain with the vehicle while it is being unloaded. Your belongings should be unloaded onto the lawn near your unloading zone.
  • After everything has been unloaded, the vehicle must be moved out of the unloading zone and into a parking lot.
  • After the vehicle has been moved, have one of your guests stay outside with your belongings while you complete your Room Condition Report, sign it, and return it to a Resident Assistant.
  • You and your guests must wear face coverings to bring your belongings in, unpack, and set up your new room.
    • Face coverings must be worn while in the residence halls outside of the student's room regardless of vaccination status. There is no assumption 6 feet of physical distance will be maintained during move-in.
    • Guests are welcome to come inside the residence halls and spend time with their students.
