Students moving inMove-In will be abuzz with new faces, excitement, and hopes for a strong start to the semester and, for the freshmen, the next four years. Before you unload that first box, here are some things you need to know.



Move-in will take place by appointment from Monday, August 10 – Sunday, August 16 from 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. each day. All residents received an email to the Lander University email address containing the link to sign-up for appointment. The link is also available in the July edition of the Housing Newsletter. Students will also need to fill out the Information Sheet and bring it with them on move-in day. You will hand this form to the attendant once you arrive at the tent.



Key pick-up will be drive-up and contactless. At your appointment time, you will enter campus via the main entrance off of Montague Avenue and proceed to the fountain in front of the Cultural Center. Signage will point you in the right direction: look for the blue tents! Drive up and one of our staff will issue you a key and move-in packet.

Important Notes

In order to limit population density on campus at a given time, each student will be limited to two (2) guests to assist with move-in. Students and guests should be courteous in practicing social distancing and are encouraged to wear a cloth face covering while moving belongings into their residence hall. Students choosing to move in on August 10 and 11 should note that student meal plans will not be active until Wednesday, August 12 at lunch. Please see the Housing Newsletter for more information.
