Spring 2022 Move-In FAQ

I'm a first-year student and cannot move in on my assigned day. Can I move in on a different day?

First-year students who are not able to move in on their assigned move-in day can move in between 9 am-5 pm on one of the other move-in days (August 17-21). However, please note that many of the Welcome2Mason events are designed with the move-in schedule in mind, and as such, first-year students may miss out on the activities scheduled during move-in. Also, Housing cannot guarantee that moving assistance will be provided to first-year students who move in a day other than that which they have been assigned. 


I'm an upper-level student and cannot move in on my assigned day? Can I move in on a different day?

Yes. Upper-level students are welcome to move in on August 19-21. It is strongly recommended that you move in on your assigned day in order to reduce traffic, waiting for elevator access and green bins.
