Move-in Requirements

Move-in Requirements 


All Mason residential and commuter students must have received their COVID-19 vaccine prior to the start of the fall semester. Residential students will be required to have their vaccination information submitted in order to complete the move-in process. Students should check their Mason e-mail account for messages from the Office of the President and Housing and Residence Life regarding the vaccination requirement. Information about uploading your COVID vaccination documentation can be found here.

Move-In Prerequisites

Your safety is our top priority. In order to ensure a smooth move in process, please complete the following:

1). Complete your Medical Health History. This can be done by visiting and selecting “Patient Portal”. The health history can be found in the “Forms” section. If you’re not sure if you’ve done this, you can check for a completion date within the “Forms” section of the Patient Portal. All residents will need to have their COVID vaccination documentation or exemption information submitted and approved by Student Health Services in order to move into the residence halls.

2). Exempt Students should complete their VAULT test kit. Students who are unvaccinated and have received an exemption from the COVID vaccine should check their Mason e-mail August 5th for information about ordering their VAULT test kit.

3). Upload your picture for your Student ID. If you are a new student or don’t yet have a Mason ID, information about how to upload your picture can be found at

We know that you and your family may have concerns about the 2-hour timeslot allotted to students for move-in. To help our first-year students move in, we are bringing back the MoveCrew! MoveCrew is a team of student volunteers who are allowed to move in early in exchange for helping to move in and welcome our first-year students to campus. We have also hired a professional moving team to assist with moving belongings in student spaces. Green bins will be available for student use this year and can be picked up near your assigned building.

4). On your move-in day, complete the Mason COVID HealthCheck. This will need to be shown when you arrive for check-in.
