Move-In

Schedule subject to change. Questions? Email orientation@spu.edu

UPDATE: All students should be aware of SPU's Self- Quarantine directive as they prepare to return to campus.

Students will be notified of their Housing Assignment on Monday, August 17. Move in times will be communicated to students shortly thereafter, no later than Friday, August 21.

Move-in dates have been changed for new students and a sign-up process will be required for all students to support responsible distancing. If you are living on campus, move-in has been spread over the course of two days: Thursday, September 10 and Friday, September 11 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on both days.

Each student will be assigned a move-in date and time. This move-in date and time will indicate when you gain access to your residence hall to begin the move-in process, you are welcome to check-in to Orientation registration at any time on your assigned move-in day.

Students are asked to limit the number of people assisting them with their move in to no more than two people. Students and those helping them move will be asked to wear face masks, unless not advisable for health reasons, as well as to perform temperature and COVID-19 symptom self-assessments before arriving on campus. In cases where students are moving into a double room, they will need to coordinate so that no more than four persons are in the room at a time.

Students will also be asked to indicate the people they’ve chosen to help them when they complete their Orientation registration in the SPU Portal.

Again, to manage occupancy and impact, people helping will be expected to exit the building once they are finished assisting with their student’s moving process. Also, only the residents of a hall or university staff will be permitted in the residence halls after 7 p.m. on the day of their assigned move in.

On-Campus Residential Students: Check-in is held in Upper Gwinn (Building 10 on the campus map) for all residential halls and apartments. To manage responsible distancing, students will be assigned to a time block for their move in. These times will be communicated later in the summer, no later than Friday, August 21.

Commuter Students: Check-in is held in Upper Gwinn (Building 10 on the campus map) on Friday morning. To manage responsible social distancing, a limited number of students will be allowed in Upper Gwinn at one time, so please plan to arrive early.

New students who move in prior to Thursday, September 10 (student athletes, international students, and dining services employees, etc.) must still go through the Orientation check-in line in their residence at the specified time.
