Move In | LSU Residential Life


We are planning for a safe move-in experience, with assigned times and days to minimize contact with other families and staff. 

First-year residence halls move-in August 15-19, 2020. Apartments move-in August 16-23, 2020.

Each student will have a 2-hour window to arrive on campus and unload belongings. After that time, you may remain in your room to set up. However, guests will not be allowed to freely come and go from the building.

View your move-in time on the “My Details” page of the housing portal. If you change rooms, your move-in time will also change. 

Roommates will be assigned the same move-in times.


Helping Hands

This year no volunteers will be available to assist at move-in.

Each student may bring two (2) individuals to assist with move-in and up to two (2) cars.

Early Move-In 
Only students who have a fall on-campus housing assignment and are required by an LSU department or organization to arrive to campus early are eligible to be early arrivals. If you are part of a group or organization that requires you to arrive early, contact the department/organization to verify that your name will be included in the list that will be submitted to Residential Life. Residential Life does not take individual requests for early arrivals.

Express move-in services are not available for fall 2020.
