Blugolds, we are so excited to welcome you to your new home at UW-Eau Claire. Please read the information below carefully to learn all about moving into your new home on campus!
Register for move-in

Important details about move-in days
Can anyone help me move-in?
Two guests per student are allowed to help you unload your dorm items and bring them up to your room. Move-in bins are available, but personal carts or dollies are recommended. Move-in bins borrowed from the university will be cleaned between each use. All individuals (guests and students) are required to wear masks on campus.
How do I check-in during my selected move-in time?
During your two-hour window, please report to the front of your assigned hall. Staff will be there to officially check you in. During check-in you will:
- Receive your room combination/key
- Confirm your emergency contact information is updated. If it is not, you will be asked to step aside, update this information, and then get back in line. To avoid this, please make sure to enter and update your emergency contact before you arrive to campus at My Housing Portal > Misc)
Where do I park during move-in?
Once you select your move-in date and time, please check your email for a registration confirmation message. This will include full parking guidelines. You will NOT need a parking permit.

Want to skip the hustle and bustle of move in day? Then register to come early on August 21st or August 22nd with available times between 10am-4pm.
- Drop off will allow you access to your space to do just that…drop off your items in your room.

- No charge this year for drop off but space is limited so register early.
- *Note some rooms are not eligible for drop off due to summer needs for the room. If you try to register and get a message that will not allow you in, that means your room is not eligible. This is very limited but may occur.*
- Deadline to register is August 16th
