SPRING 2021 Move In

Welcome to our new students – and to our returners, welcome back! Spring move in is pretty easy:

  1. Review your room assignment in our Housing Portal.
  2. Arrive to campus anytime beginning Jan. 7, 2021. Move in continues through the first day of classes, Monday, Jan. 25.
  3. Get your keys at your hall desk or apartment community center office and move in.

Can I move in before the above dates? No, early move in is not available before Jan. 7, 2021.

Can I move in after the above dates? Once classes have started, move in is available during regular business hours. If you plan to come after classes start, email housing@iastate.edu to let us know.   

What time should I arrive? If you can, it’s best to arrive during the day and move in. However, if you need to arrive in the evening or overnight, just go to your building. There, you’ll see a sign on the door with a number to call. Staff will greet you, give you check-in information and give you your keys.

If you have any questions, please reach out to us at housing@iastate.edu or give us a call at 515-294-2900.
