New Student Move-In

Move-In Schedule

New and returning residential students will follow the University's main move-in schedule on Monday, August 17th.  Some student groups require earlier move-in times and will need to follow the schedule in the early move-in schedule (see below).  If you are not part of an early arrival group, follow one of these schedules:

New Residential Students (Freshman & Transfer)

When you arrive to campus, you will have one hour to park and unload your items at the residence hall entrance.  Following that hour, families are welcome to park in a parking lot and return to the residence hall to continue unpacking.  Items may be shipped to USF prior to your arrival to make the move-in process easier.  The mail room will be open during move-in to collect your packages when you arrive.  All boxes should include the student's name and mailbox number to ensure it is sent to the correct location.

Due to our condensed Welcome Week schedule, we kindly ask that family members leave campus at the end of Move-In Day.  Once students are moved in, each residence hall will be accessible only to students assigned to that hall - no guests or visitors will be allowed.

Welcome Week programming will commence in the days following move-in, where students will engage in activities and receive information and resources to prepare for classes and campus life, and an incredible USF experience!


Returning Students

Tuesday, August 18th: Sophomores

Wednesday, August 19th: Seniors and Juniors

Check-in between 9-5 p.m. in your residence hall with your Resident Director.  Start the process by connecting with your Resident Director to inform them of your arrival.
