Moving In

Preparing for Fall 2020 Move-in

Move-in day can be an exciting or stressful day depending on how you prepare. Having everything you need with you is important to make your transition into your new home go smoothly. To help ensure the safety of our residents, during COVID-19, we are taking preventative measures to keep your move-in experience healthy, clean, and safe.  

Move-in Date and Time 

We have created a schedule that promotes physical distancing.  Only 4-5 students will be allowed to move in per hour per building with move-in happening over 10 days. Students will sign up for a one-hour move-in time slot at my.fiu.edu -> Student Tools -> Student Housing -> MMC Housing -> Move-in Time Selection.   They will be able to select a date and time to arrive between August 13-23 from 9am to 7pm each day. 

You can make your selection beginning July 6, 2020. 

Students who arrive within their designated time, are given priority. If you arrive outside of your designated time, you will need to wait for students with priority to be granted access to move in. A staff member will provide direction upon arrival. 

Day of Check-in 

Check-in will be touchless. Students will check-in online, at my.fiu.edu -> Student Tools -> Student Housing -> MMC Housing -> Fall Check-in.   Once this is completed, their One Card will be activated and they can swipe their One Card to get into their apartment or suite. The resident’s bedroom key will be taped and secured to their bedroom door inside the apartment or suite.  

  • Students will be limited to two helpers to assist with move-in.
  • All students and helpers will be required to wear masks when on campus.
  • Students will be granted access to a cart. Carts will be wiped down and sanitized after every use by a staff member. Students also have the option to bring their own dolly or hand-truck.  
  • Parking permits are not required on move-in day. Do not park on sidewalks, on the grass or in ADA spaces. 
  • In efforts to make your move-in day easy, we encourage students to print our HRL Car Contact form prior. Please write your name and phone number, and place it on the vehicle's dashboard while parking in your loading zone. 

Students will be provided a welcome package, which includes Resident Assistants contacts and virtual floor meeting information.  

What to Bring 

Making your own residence hall checklist can also be helpful. Some students find it convenient to bring only the necessities and buy additional items after consulting with roommates. There is no additional storage space, so only bring enough to fit in your suit
