Helpful move-in tips

Move-in can feel like a whirlwind. Here are some tips to make move-in a little smoother:

  • Arrive on time.
  • Make sure you have completed all of your required forms (Housing Application, Housing Contract, Health Forms, including immunization records, etc.). You will not be able to move in without these items completed.
  • Wear comfortable clothes and drink plenty of water. Moving personal items around campus will be tiring, especially during August in Georgia.
  • Bring a hand-truck or dolly. This will make bulky and heavy items easier to transport.
  • Label all boxes as you pack them. When you are ready to unpack the contents, you’ll know what’s where. It’s also helpful if you label each of your boxes with your name. This will help direct available volunteers to the correct room to deliver your items.
  • Break down all of your boxes and throw away your trash in one of the large dumpsters located on campus. Do not leave your boxes and trash in the hallways, lounges, porches or lawns. Thank you for helping take care of your new home!
