Fall 2021 Move-In

Making UT your home sweet home is important, and we are here to help you find your community on campus. We can’t wait to meet you at move-in, get to know you, and create unforgettable memories at upcoming events this fall!


  • You will need to schedule a move-in appointment and make arrangements to move in during your scheduled move-in appointment window. Since you will be moving in during a specific timeframe, it will be important to pack strategically. It is a good idea to pack only essential items needed for the fall semester, including cleaning supplies to keep your living space as clean as possible.
  • If you are planning to ship items to your residence hall, make sure the delivery date is no more than a week prior to your move-in appointment.

  • Move-in dates will be Sunday, August 8 through Tuesday, August 17, and move-in is by appointment only.  Students registered for participation in certain early-start programs (Sorority Recruitment, Ignite, etc.) will have specific appointments held on the dates of their programs to ensure the availability of move-in opportunities for participants who must arrive on those dates.
  • You will be assigned a date/time to log in to the University Housing Portal to schedule your move-in appointment.  Access to create move-in appointments will begin in early to mid-June, after we have settled First-Year student room selection.
  • You will access the University Housing Portal to schedule a move-in appointment. When you enter the University Housing portal, select the “Fall 2021 Move-In Appointment” tab on the home page, and follow instructions to schedule a move-in appointment.
  • Move-in appointment windows are specific to each residence hall. Move-in appointment windows will be in three-hour increments beginning at 7 a.m. and ending at 10 p.m. daily.
  • Once you schedule a move-in appointment, make note of your appointment date/time as you will only be permitted to move in during your specific move-in appointment window.


  • Be sure to pay attention to posted instructions and signage when you enter the residence halls. Steps to complete the move-in process will be posted as you enter your residence hall.
  • There will be luggage carts and/or moving bins available during move-in. Disinfectant wipes will be available for use to wipe luggage carts and/or moving bins in between use.
  • Traffic and parking details will be published closer to move-in dates.
