Moving In

Spring 2020

Students may move in Saturday, January 4, 2020 from 9AM to 4PM.

Early move-in requests will be accepted for students attending orientation on January 3, 2020. Early move-in will take place on Thursday, January 2, 2020 from noon to 4pm.

Preparing for 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.

  • Bring your FIU ID Card or another photo ID to receive your room key. Family and friends cannot check out your key for you.
  • Bring a dolly or hand truck, since it's difficult to park very close to the buildings. Parking permits are not required on move-in day. Do not park on sidewalks, on the grass or in ADA spaces.

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 suite.
