Move-In Day

Congratulations! It’s almost time to move into the Village at Stan State!

Before you arrive, please review the following instructions for your Move-In Day and what you’ll need to do leading up to the big day.

If you have any questions about moving in, please email us at or call the Housing Office at (209) 667-3675. Be sure to stay tuned to your Stan State email for the most up-to-date information!

Before You Arrive

All residents must complete the following prior to returning to campus:

  • Take a COVID-19 Test, Upload Your Results, & Prepare to Show Results Upon Check-In
  • Self-Certify Your COVID-19 Vaccination Status or Exemption
  • Submit Photo for a Warrior ID Card
  • Prepare for Recently-Announced Mask Protocol
  • Residents and Guests: Complete the Daily Self-Screen on the morning of Move-In Day

You will need to sequester in your room until your test results have been uploaded in an effort to keep our community safe. If your test comes back positive, you must contact the Housing Office immediately at (209) 667-3675.

Check your Stan State email for full details and instructions regarding each of these tasks.

Incoming spring residents have the option between two Move-In Days: Thursday, January 27 or Thursday, February 10.

In order to safely monitor the amount of traffic around our community, residents must schedule a timeslot for their move-in appointment. Each timeslot offers residents enough time to check in, borrow resources like wheelbarrows or dollies, and unload their items in the unloading zones.

Schedule Your Move-In Day Timeslot

When you arrive on campus, go to Parking Lot 6 near Housing (look for the pop-up tents). There will be signage directing you where to go to check-in. At check-in, please have the following ready:

  • Photo ID
  • Proof of Negative COVID test
  • Your “Green Screen” from the Daily Self-Screen, clearing you and your guests to be on campus. When you arrive, Housing staff will check for Green Screens of all members of your party to ensure the self-screen has been completed.

You will receive your key, a welcome bag and necessary information for your check-in. Parking in Lots 6 and 7 is free on Move-In Day!

Any resident or guest who has recently experienced symptoms of COVID-19 is expected to self-report and not participate in Move-In Day in order to help keep our community safe. A separate, mutually agreed upon move-in date can be scheduled with Housing staff. Please call the Housing Office at (209) 667-3675 to reschedule.

Residents will be limited to a maximum of two people to accompany them on Move-In Day. Guests must fill out the Daily Self-Screen prior to arriving to campus and show their green screens at check-in.

  • All guests are required to be vaccinated and wear a surgical mask, KN95, or N95 face covering in all public indoor spaces, including in-unit, and outdoors where physical distancing is not possible. Cloth face coverings are no longer permissible on campus.

Parking is free on Move-In Day in parking lots 6 and 7. Parking is always free on the weekends.
