Move-In Day Procedures
- The move-in process this fall will occur over several days, August 8-10, to stagger the arrival of students.
- All residents must select a move-in date and check-in time. Instructions for selecting a move-in appointment (pdf)
- All residents will check-in at the Centennial Center (Central and West Campus residents).
- For traffic and parking reasons, please bring only one vehicle to the move in. You will receive 1 loading-zone pass at check-in. If a second car is needed, it will not be permitted in the loading zone, and will need to go to long-term parking.
- Please be conservative and bring minimal items at move-in. This will mean less congestion and trips up the stairs. Due to the fluid nature of this fall ask yourself, “If I were asked to move out in less than 90-minutes, could I do so?”
- Elevators will be disabled. Only bring what you are able to carry up the stairs.
- Each resident is only allowed two (2) others to assist them with move in.
- Once your vehicle is unloaded, you will need to move to long-term parking PRIOR to unpacking and decorating your room.
- There will be no move-in assistance for social distancing reasons.

Parent to Parent Advice
After move-in, we asked parents what advice they would give to the next groups moving in to University Housing. Check out the parent to parent advice (pdf) they provided.
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
Since Personal Protective Equipment is in high demand and in some places short supply, it’s not too early to prepare items for when you arrive to campus. These items would include: ample supply of washable or disposable face masks, thermometer, pocket-size sanitizers, hand wipes, hand sanitizer (+refills), rubbing alcohol, hand soap, disinfectant wipes and any cleaning items for the room/bathroom.
While you are welcome to purchase from anywhere, one of our vendors is offering a site for convenience: swaku.com/gcsu-catalog-health Ordering quickly will assure delivery to your campus room before move-in.
University Housing cannot cover the loss or damage to student property. Prior to arrival, please consult your homeowner's policy or secure personal property insurance. For more information on personal property insurance, visit the GradGuard web site.
The Roommate Agreement can help suite mates work out what is considered acceptable for suite.
