Before You Arrive at FSU

What to Bring

Still wondering what to bring with you to FSU? Our website has a page filled with what you should bring and what you should leave at home. Check it out here.

Quickly and conveniently order your bedding, decor, and more through Our Campus Market.

Move in Tips

  • Packing: Remember, you will be unloading all of your belongings. Pack sensibly and seasonally as summer session is only a few weeks long.
  • Hand Trucks: There are limited hand-trucks/dollies 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.
  • Emergency Contact Information: Be ready with your emergency contact information. At check-in, you'll be asked to provide a contact's name, address, and phone number.

Pets at Move–In

It is hot in Tallahassee in summer 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 your FSU post office box address to be available for you when you move-in, please do not mail your boxes prior to Friday, May 5th for Summer A & B and Wednesday, June 14th for Summer C. 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.

Download the Seminole Safe App

Seminole Safe App

New for 2016, the FSU Police Department has released the new SeminoleSAFE app for iOS and Android. In it, you will find the Housing Move–In Guide which provides you:

  • Direct turn–by–turn directions to your designated unloading zone.
  • Directions to where to park after you drop off your stuff at the unloading zone.
  • Maps of shuttle bus routes to get you back and forth from your hall to your vehicle.

The app also features real-time weather data on campus so you can time your arrival to miss the afternoon thunderstorms we tend to get here in the summer.

Register your Vehicle

Good parking habits begin early. Register your vehicle early.

Day of Your Arrival at FSU

Summer A & B Move-In Begins Friday, May 12, 2017 at 9am

Summer C Move-In Begins Wednesday, June 21, 2017 at 9am

This is the earliest you can move into the residence halls. Once the residence halls open, you may check in and pick up your key at any time afterwards. When you arrive to your residence hall, you must have a picture ID (FSUCard or Driver’s License) available. You must be present to sign for and receive your room key. Find your assignment on the myHousing portal.

Parking Guidelines

Even though classes are not in session during check–in week, the University is open for business and staff and faculty are actively preparing for your arrival. Check–in is a busy time for the University, and the parking lots and streets by residence halls can become congested. The following guidelines will help make your check-in experience positive while allowing University operations to function.

Unloading Parking (10–15 minutes)

  • There are very limited parking spaces adjacent to the residence halls. If they are available, you will be able to use these spaces to unload your vehicle only. Parking for vehicle unloading is short term only.

Parking After Unloading

  • After unloading, you must immediately move your vehicle to one of the indicated parking garages. A color–coded campus map with suggested garage usage is available at the link. For Summer C, permit restrictions are lifted in all student spaces (white line spaces) through Sunday, June 25th at midnight.

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.

Guests

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.

Remember to Drink Water!

The average temperature in Tallahassee in June is 91°F. Stay hydrated while moving into your residence hall. We recommend bringing a reusable water bottle.

After You Move In

Whether you're a New 'Nole just starting at FSU, or a senior preparing to graduate, there is plenty to do during the summer at Florida State! If you're looking for stuff to do on campus, check out all the places to go and summer programming available here.

Parking

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

The front of our halls are unloading zones during the duration of move–in, and you will not be able to park in these spaces. Following the maps below, please be sure you make your way from your hall to your designated Parking Garage.
