Residence Hall Move–In Fall 2019

Fall 2019 assigned move-in times will be on Thursday, August 22nd and Friday, August 23rd between 8AM and 6PM! Please check back with us frequently, as we are updating our information regularly in preparation to welcome you to your new home.

For new students, fall move-in times will be on Thursday, August 22nd and Friday, August 23rd.

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.

Assigned move-in times will be on August 22nd and 23rd. During your assigned move-in time, please follow the move-in instructions outlined in your hall's move-in map. When you arrive at your residence hall, ensure you have a picture ID available (preferably your FSUCard, though a state-issued ID will be fine). Residents must be present to sign for and receive your room key. Remember to check the myHousing portal to see your residence hall, room number, and move-in time.

Returning students will not have assigned move-in times. We suggest returning students arrive in the evenings after 6 PM or during the weekend to experience the least amount of traffic.

Before You Arrive at FSU

Move-In Tips

  • Packing: Remember, you will be unloading all of your belongings. Pack sensibly and seasonally.
  • Carts and Hand Trucks: There are limited carts/hand-trucks available for checkout on a first-come, first-serve basis at the hall desks. If you have your own, you are strongly encouraged to bring it.

Pets at Move–In

It is hot in Tallahassee in August and pets are not allowed in the residence halls. Please leave your pets at home for their own safety and comfort.

Mailing Packages to Residence Halls Prior to Move–In

If you are mailing packages to the FSU post office to be available for you when you move-in, please do not mail your boxes prior to Thursday, August 1st. If you would like to contract with the FSU UPS Store to have your packages mailed sooner, please contact the FSU UPS Store at 850–561–9180.

Day of Your Arrival at FSU

Move-In Times will be on August 22nd and 23rd

During your assigned move-in time, you should refer to your hall's move-in map to determine your unloading zone and other pertinent driving instructions. Find your residence hall, room number, and move-in time on the myHousing portal.

Returning students will not have assigned move-in times. We suggest returning students arrive in the evenings after 6 PM or during the weekend to experience the least amount of traffic.

Parking Guidelines

You are encouraged to download the FSU Tranz app for your iOS or Android smartphone for availability in the campus parking garages.

Good parking habits begin early. Register your vehicle early and park in student parking spaces as soon as possible.

Elevator Usage

All residence halls on FSU campus contain elevators. Use of elevators may be limited due to the large numbers of people attempting to move in at the same time. To expedite the use of elevators for all residents, we also encourage you to take the elevator up with belongings, but use the stairs to come down, so long as you are able to do so.


For safety reasons, residents must escort their guests, including family members, at all times while guests are in the building.

Problems with your Room?

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.

Remember to Drink Water!

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.

After You Move In


First–year students are required to attend the 2019 New Student Convocation. The New Student Convocation ceremony on Sunday, August 25th in the Donald L. Tucker Civic Center. Convocation marks the entrance into the life and traditions of Florida State University. More information about Convocation can be found here.

Attend Welcome Week Events

From August 22-29, 2019, FSU will host fun events throughout campus. Get ready for the fall semester at Welcome Week. All events are free with a valid FSUID.

Parking/Shuttle Maps

Shuttles operate from 9:00am until 4:00pm starting on Thursday, August 22, 2019.

Below are maps to help you find your way not only to your hall, but to let you know of your designated Parking Garage.
