University Housing is excited to welcome you to your new home! Living on campus opens up tons of new opportunities for you to meet new people, make new friends, learn new things, and get involved in programs that will enhance your academic experience.
COVID-19 testing and Isolation Policy Updates: There is no COVID testing or vaccination requirement to live on campus. Due to the broad availability of COVID vaccines and personal protective items such as face coverings, Florida State University has adopted a position like other State University System institutions to no longer offer COVID isolation spaces for students who test positive. Effective Summer 2022, students who test positive for COVID are permitted to isolate in their residence hall room regardless of whether they have a roommate. Students are always welcome to isolate off-campus if they choose; however, they are not required to do so. Students should contact University Health Services for information about medical services available on campus, including COVID testing and vaccines
All students are required to sign up for a move-in day and time. The link to sign up for move-in will be emailed to students at their fsu.edu email address.

Good parking habits begin early. Register your vehicle early.
During your scheduled move-in time, you should arrive at your hall, unpack your car, get your belongings to your room, and move your car to a parking garage. You can then return to the residence hall on foot to continue setting up your room.
You are encouraged to download the FSU Tranz app for your iOS or Android smartphone for availability in the campus parking garages.
For safety reasons, residents must escort their guests, including family members, at all times while guests are in the building. You may bring up to two guests to help you move in.
If you have any facilities concerns with your room during check–in, please speak with your building’s Facilities Supervisor. Your Facilities Supervisor can be reached through the front desk in your residence hall. After check–in, you are encouraged to submit a housing facilities repair request through our website or the myFSU mobile app.
The average temperature in Tallahassee in August is 92°F. Stay hydrated while moving into your residence hall. We recommend bringing a reusable water bottle.
Now that you have moved into your residence hall room, we need you to take a good look around and ensure it’s looking good! If you find that your room has any maintenance issues, please submit a repair request within 72 hours using our online system.
