Move In Information
Hall Move-In Information
The residence halls will be open at 8:00 a.m. on Thursday, August 22nd. The UNC community (faculty, staff & students) will be available to answer questions and assist with move-in. Please view our Move In Guide for helpful information
Dollies and carts will be available for use on both Central and West Campuses; however, please feel free to bring your own if you have one. Students moving into the residence halls should check-in with their RA to receive their key. Students moving into one of our University-Owned Houses will check-in at the University Apartments front desk to obtain their key.
If you are attending the New Student Orientation session on August 20th - 21st, you will be able to move in as early as Monday, August 19th after 1:00 p.m. If you choose to move in on either Monday or Tuesday of hall opening week, there is a $25 per night charge that will be billed to your UNC student account. New Student Orientation (NSO) will only pay for the night of Wednesday, August 21st. You must be registered with New Student Orientation and attend all sessions to be eligible.
If you don't have a UNC i.d. yet you will need to go to the University Center. The UNC Card Office is located on the second floor of the University Center. Your UNC i.d. is needed for access into your residence hall and/or room.
Twenty-minute loading areas will be available during move-in on Thursday and Friday. We ask that items are unloaded quickly so all students can utilize these areas. Please refer to the UNC parking map for more information.
Bear Welcome Events
Bear Welcome events are planned to help students make the adjustment to UNC and your new home. There are many opportunities for students to get involved on campus from the moment they arrive. Whether it's meeting new people, getting involved in campus activities, or finding that part-time job, UNC has something for you.
Events are planned throughout campus to help make students transition to UNC easier. There are multiple activities of all different types offered throughout each day. Arriving on Thursday will help make sure you can take advantage of all the activities that are offered with the rest of your communities. You will be able to meet new people, get to know your roommates and floor mates, find a part-time job, and get involved. There’s something for everyone. Check out additional events going on around campus on the Student Activities web page.
