Are you ready for Move-In?

Move InYou might be planning for summer and moving your student back home, but we're already thinking about fall move-in. Before you know it, students will be back on campus for another year at NC State. Here are some tips in preparation for this year’s Fall Move-In:

  • Mark your calendar. Parents, make sure you have the move-in dates on your calendar so you are prepared. Friday, August 16 – Sunday, August 18 is move-in weekend. Classes begin Wednesday, August 21.
  • Know your student’s assignment. If your son/daughter is a current resident, he/she should know their fall assignment or can find them via MyPack Portal. Future residents will receive their assignments via MyPack Portal on June 1. Be sure your student checks their assignment so you know what building you’ll be moving into!
  • Check with the roommate. Before your student moves in, have them contact their roommate. This information is available via MyPack Portal. Determine who will bring certain items to avoid duplication.
  • Know your options.  Some students may move in early if they are part of a specific Village or group. Your student will receive an email later in the summer if they are eligible to move in early
  • Be prepared. If you’ve experienced move-in weekend before, you’re probably a seasoned professional, but if you haven’t be sure to dress comfortably, bring a hand truck or cart and pack your belongings in plastic tubs with lids. This will make moving easier. We’ll have students and staff volunteers ready to help!
  • Print your Parking Pass. You’ll find all the specifics about move-in on our website, but be sure to print your parking permit. Permits will be available via the Transportation website later in the summer. 
  • Get packed. Need help packing? Check out our list of What to Bring and What to Leave at Home.
  • Stay tuned. The University Housing website is a critical resource for move-in weekend information. We’ll update information throughout the summer, so be sure to check regularly for the most up-to-date information.

We’re looking forward to seeing you and your student this fall!
