To-do list

Before You Arrive

All incoming residents must complete the following prior to moving in:

**New Stan State students only.

If you need to check in earlier than the scheduled Move-In Day, early check-in may be available for a daily rate of $40 per night.

To request early check-in, residents must complete the Early Check-In Request Form well in advance of their requested check-in date. Please note that early check-in may not be available if your room is still being prepared by our maintenance or custodial team.   

Request Early Check In

Friends and family members are welcome to attend Move-In Day. We encourage residents to limit their number of guests to two people, however we understand that is not always possible.

Meal Plans are active starting on Move-In Day. Visit the Dine on Campus website for a full listing of dining venues and their hours of operation, and don't forget to download the Boost Mobile Ordering app to order your meals (or Starbucks!) in advance.

Residents have 10 days following move-in to make changes to their meal plan selection via the Housing Portal. Meal plans cannot be changed after this deadline has passed.

To view your room assignment, login to the Housing Portal and select “My Assignment.” There, you’ll be able to see your room assignment and message your roommates.

If the My Assignment tab is blank, open your housing application and scroll to the last page - there, you can find a Booking Summary with your room and roommate information. 

Check out our virtual Move-In Guide for a full list of what to bring and what should stay behind.

Remember, your room is fully furnished but you do need to bring the essentials such as bedding and pillows (size Twin XL), towels and linens, and decorations. We also recommend chatting with roommates ahead of time about dishes, silverware, cleaning supplies, and common area items (such as living room televisions, coffeemaker, décor, etc).

All suites are equipped with a microwave and mini-fridge. Per the Housing License Agreement, hot plates, electric frying pans, electric grills, portable stoves, toaster ovens or other similar appliances are not permitted in the suites. Residents can bring an additional mini-fridge for their bedroom, limit one per bedroom.  

Residents are strongly encouraged to take an at-home COVID test prior to coming to campus. Test results will not be checked upon moving in, however it is recommended that anyone who tests positive or is experiencing symptoms delay their return to campus. 

Free rapid tests are available at the Housing Office Front Desk for anyone wanting to test upon arrival or throughout the semester. 

Yes, for Fall Move-In Day volunteers will be available to help unload your belongings and even possibly carry things to your unit! We will also have wheelbarrows and dollies available to check out for free.

For Spring Move-In Day, unfortunately we do not have volunteers available. However, you can still check out a wheelbarrow or dolly for free from the Housing Office Front Desk.

If you cannot make the official Move-In Day and are planning to move the week of classes starting or the following weekend, you can visit the Housing Office during open office hours to check in and pick up your keys. If you arrive after hours, please call the 24/7 line at 209-667-3675.
