Fall 2017 Move In Dates & Times

With 12,000 students living on campus, every resident has a move-in date based on where they live--and whether or not they're new or returning to ISU. See the chart below for your move-in date and please keep the following in mind:

  • The dates below are when your move-in BEGINS. You can come later if that is more convenient for you. Move-in continues through the first day of classes.
    • Fall classes begin on Monday, August 21, 2017.
  • Move-in will not start earlier than the times indicated. You don't need to arrive early to "beat the rush".
  • Even room numbers end in 0, 2, 4, 6 or 8. Odd room numbers end in 1, 3, 5, 7 or 9.
  • New students will be mailed a color-coded parking pass for move-in on Aug. 15 and 16.
  • Move-In Crew will be here to help on Aug. 15 and 16 from 8:00 am - 5:00 pm.
  • If for some reason you MUST move in at a different date / time, please view our information on Early / Late Arrivals.
