Fall Move-In: Undergraduates
The University of Michigan will be tweeting out live updates of all the move-in action, using the hashtag #moveinhome.
Traffic information, brilliant ideas, last minute tips — as soon as we get it, we’ll send it out.
And we’d love it if shared your move-in photos with us!
Congratulations, you'll soon be living at Michigan!

When do you move in?
General Move-In for all undergraduates is Thursday, August 28 and Friday, August 29. If you are part of a program that requires you to be on campus earlier, contact that program's coordinator directly to find out the special plan for your group.
When you arrive in Ann Arbor, be sure to use your Move-In timeslot. By using the timeslot reserved for you, you'll find it much easier to park and get where you need to go. Also remember to post your unloading permit on the windshield of your car: your permit entitles you to park in a designated unloading zone near your residence hall or Northwood apartment for up to 30 minutes. Please note that parking regulations are strictly enforced on campus and throughout the city of Ann Arbor.
It is possible to make arrangements to move in Saturday, Sunday or Monday, during hours when your building's community center is open. Note that on those days our full Move-In program won't be in full swing, and we won't have all our super helpful Move-In Makers on hand to meet your car and start toting your things up for you.
Also, Saturday, August 30, is the first football game of the season: in all the excitement (and traffic) Ann Arbor can get very difficult to navigate, and it can be hard to find hotel accommodations nearby.
How long will it take?
Budget 30 minutes for unloading your vehicle and checking in (unpacking can come afterwards). If you come Thursday or Friday, teams of our marvelous volunteer Move-In Makers will be on hand to help tote your things for you!
Checking in and getting your key
Residence Halls: when you arrive on campus, go to your hall’s Community Center to check in, pick up your key, and receive directions to your room.
Northwood I, II or III: go to the Community Center at 2150 Cram Place to check in. If you are taking a cab or shuttle to the Cram Place Community Center, ask the driver to wait for you while you pick up your room key, then you can be dropped off near your assigned apartment.
Filling out your Pre-Check-In Form before you come to campus will save you time and hassle when you arrive at your building.
After you’ve unloaded, we will direct you to where you can park your car temporarily while you unpack and arrange your room. The temporary parking areas are typically a few blocks away, and can accommodate you for three hours.
Shipping and Storage
Trunks or boxes should arrive no sooner than one to two days before you do. Your residence hall will designate an on-site location and specific hours for package pick up.
Northwood I, II and IIIDue to space limitations, the Community Center at Cram Place cannot accept deliveries or store items for residents during Move-In. If you plan to ship items, schedule them to arrive after you move into your apartment so you can personally accept the package/s. We don’t recommend shipping to your Northwood address apartment address prior to your arrival because your packages will not be secure left at the door by the delivery person.
