Move In

Move-in details for August 2021 have not been established. This page contains move in information for last year as a general guide of what you might see or expect. The overall student housing calendar is here. 


Move in details from last year: August 2020

Move-in for 2020 will be significantly different than in past years. An overview of the August 2020 opening is available here and the Frequently Asked Questions are under the COVID-19 navigational tab. 

A couple of things to keep in mind as you consider move-in:

  • If you are moving in early and are with a group (for instance, KU band, or ROTC) you will receive information from the program. Decisions about how to request an early move in by an individual are not established yet.
  • Housing has a limited number of hand carts available for move in, but it may be helpful to bring your own cart or collapsible wagon if you have one.
  • Before you arrive, check whether household insurance covers your belongings. Student Housing insurance cov­ers buildings only. Several companies offer policies specifically for students in on-campus housing.

We recommend you continue to look back at this page for announcement of changes. Students should also be sure to monitor their KU email accounts, as announcements will be sent directly to them.
