Before reporting to the residence hall, students must start check in at the Donald L. Tucker Civic Center to complete one of the following COVID-19 clearance activities:

  1. Provide documentation of a complete COVID vaccination finished at least two weeks prior to arrival. COVID-19 vaccination cards do not need to be emailed or faxed in. You will present your card at check in and a representative will record that you showed proof of vaccination.
  2. OR
  3. If you have tested COVID positive in the last 90 days, email your results to several days prior to your arrival. Make sure to indicate that you are sending test results for housing clearance. You will pick up a clearance wristband at the Civic Center.
  4. OR
  5. Complete a COVID test at the FSU testing site, and self-quarantine in your residence hall room until results are available. Schedule your test ahead of time on the UHS website. Outside test results will not be accepted.
  6. Students who arrive after 5pm can report directly to their residence hall, and will be required to complete their COVID-19 clearance activity on the following business day.

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 and room. Summer C classes begin on Monday, June 21st.

CARE students have a different move-in schedule. Please visit the CARE website for more information.

Scheduling Your Summer C Move-In Day and Time

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 email address.

How to Schedule Your Move-In Appointment

  • Move-in appointments will occur Thursday, June 17 through Sunday, June 20.
  • We are utilizing Sign Up Genius to schedule move-in appointments. You do not need to create a Sign Up Genius account to participate.
  • You will receive a Sign Up Genius link specific to your building. This link will be emailed to your FSU email account. Do not share that link with students who live elsewhere; it will not work for them.
  • You can sign up for one appointment only. Each appointment one hour long. In that hour you should check in to get your key, unload your vehicle, and move your vehicle to a parking garage. You may walk back to your residence hall to finish setting up your room.
  • There are more than enough appointments for all students.
  • There are weekday and weekend appointment options.
  • If your preferred day and time is not available, we cannot schedule you for a day that already has all the slots taken. Please choose an appointment that is closest to your preference. The number of move in slots per day has been carefully calculated to allow for social distancing during check in.
  • You must use your FSU email ( to schedule your move-in appointment. Sign Up Genius will not recognize or accept a non-FSU email address.

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.

Move in Tips

  • Pack sensibly and seasonally as summer session is only a few weeks long.
  • There are limited hand-trucks/dollies and moving carts available for checkout on a first-come, first-serve basis at the hall desks.
  • Make sure you have entered your emergency contact information on the housing portal before you arrive.

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.

Download the Seminole Safe App

The FSU Police Department manages the SeminoleSAFE app for iOS and Android.

The app 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

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 car to a parking lot or parking garage.

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.


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.

Isolation Information

University Housing will not provide on-campus isolation space for students who receive a positive COVID-19 test or need to quarantine, and there will be limited space for isolation in an off-campus location for students who need assistance. Resident students who have a positive COVID test should plan to spend their isolation time at home or an off-campus alternative.

Students can return to their on-campus assignment after the isolation time recommended by the CDC and local public health authorities.

Fully vaccinated people with no COVID-like symptoms following an exposure will be able to continue their campus activities, as long as they monitor for potential symptoms of COVID-19 for 14 days and prepare to isolate if symptoms occur. They do not need to quarantine or be tested following an exposure to someone with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 unless symptoms occur.

Fully vaccinated people with COVID-19 symptoms. Although the risk that fully vaccinated people could become infected with COVID-19 is low, any fully vaccinated person who experiences symptoms consistent with COVID-19 should isolate themselves from others (off campus) and be clinically evaluated for COVID-19. The symptomatic fully vaccinated person should inform their healthcare provider of their vaccination status at the time of presentation to care.

Students who are not fully vaccinated and who come into contact with someone who is COVID positive will be expected to quarantine for 14 days either in their on-campus assignment or off-campus location, and should be clinically evaluated for COVID-19. If COVID-like symptoms occur, the student will need to be clinically evaluated for COVID-19. If the student is determined to be positive for COVID-19 or other variants, they will isolate (off campus) for the recommended amount of time by the CDC and local public health authorities.


Maps will be posted once routes are determined for Summer 2021.
