SPRING 2024 Move In

Welcome to the Cyclone family and life on campus! Spring move-in is as follows:

  1. Review your room assignment and, if applicable, roommate information here.
  2. Arrive to campus anytime beginning Thursday, Jan. 11, 2023. Move in continues through the first day of classes, Tuesday, Jan. 16.

Your Move-In Day

You can move in beginning on Thursday, Jan. 11. When you arrive, just call the number posted on the door of your building. Staff will let you in, provide you with a check-in packet and issue your keys.

We do recommend trying your best to move in between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. If that is not possible, we understand and are able to help outside of those hours. Just follow the process above.

Move in is not available before Jan. 11, 2023. If you choose to move in on Jan. 16 or after, you need to email us at housing@iastate.edu to let us know when you plan to arrive.
