Move-in - How to Get Here & Check In | LSU Residential Life

Destination: LSU

 

Get to LSU

Clearly display your Move-in Day hang tag on your dashboard or rear view mirror so LSU Police can direct you to the correct staging areas, unloading zones, and parking lots.

Your Move-in Day hang tag should arrive at your home address mailbox in late July.

Follow your community’s specific route to campus shown below. Once you arrive on campus, you will be directed to your residence hall's staging area to wait your turn to check in at your hall.

CHECK IN

Your assigned check-in time is the earliest you can arrive on campus on August 12, 2018. (Early arrivals are not listed here.)

Can't make it at that time? No worries; you can check in at your community’s front desk any day after August 12 between 9 a.m. – 9 p.m. Just make sure to check in before the end of the first day of classes or your room will be reassigned to another student and penalties applied to your student account.

Once you move from your staging area to your hall unloading zone, volunteers will unload your car(s) while you go inside to check in. Don't forget your TigerCard!

Park

After unloading at your residence hall, volunteers will direct cars to the exit route and other parking areas to make room for the next Tiger in line.

Since Move-in Day is on a Sunday, you may park in any legal, non-restricted space on campus, including faculty and staff spaces.
But remember, your vehicle must be in a Resident Lot (Green, Zone 3) when campus reopens on Monday at 7 a.m.
