Moving in to your Residence Hall
Because you are attending this Orientation session, you will be able to move into your assigned residence hall as early as Monday, August 19, 1:00-5:00pm (other new residents do not move in until August 22). You do not need to make any special arrangements as Orientation will be providing Housing and Residential Education a list of students who are scheduled to attend this session. Please note that you will not be able to move in before 1:00pm on Monday.
** If you choose to move in before Orientation, you will be billed $25 per night to your student account. Orientation will cover the cost to stay in your room on Wednesday, August 21 but you will be billed for Monday and Tuesday night if you choose to move in early.
If you are moving on campus on August 19, plan to arrive before 1:00pm and go to the University Center (2nd floor) to get your UNC ID (you will need your Bear Number). This will allow you access into your residence hall and room. Otherwise, you can get your ID during Orientation.
If you choose to move in after the Orientation session, you may do so 3:00-5:00pm on Wednesday, August 21. You will be able to receive your UNC ID card during Orientation. There is no additional cost to move in on Wednesday.
Please refer to the Housing and Residential Education website for general Move-In Information.
