Move In 2019

Please note these are instructions from 2019, but are left on the site to give you a sense of how move-in day proceeds.



Welcome to KU on move-in day!

You can help by bringing a hand cart or collapsible wagon. 

Links at left direct you to instructions for moving in to your hall, a suggested packing list for you, a complete school-year calendar, and more. Looking for the hour-long move-in presentation for parents sponsored by KU Student Affairs Shares? Find it here. 

Check whether household insurance covers your belongings. Student Housing insurance cov­ers buildings only. Several companies offer policies specifically for students in on-campus housing.

Thanks in advance for your cooperation and patience during an exciting (but somewhat stressful, we know!) day.
