Optional Drop Off Days

To help with social distancing efforts, UA will offer optional drop off days on August 1-3 for students to receive their keys, set up their rooms and return at a later date, avoiding the limited crowds on Move-In days. Once students drop off their belongings, they cannot stay on campus, but do not need to sign up for a Move-In time and can simply return once Move-In starts.

*Early Arrivals (Aug. 4-8)

Approved early arrival activities are:

  • Sorority Recruitment
  • Million Dollar Band
  • Camp 1831
  • Honors Action
  • Student athletes as approved by coaching staff

These groups send participating students’ information to HRC staff. Contact appropriate group leader for more information and details.

Fraternity recruitment is not approved for early arrivals as there are no related events scheduled prior to the end of Move-In.

Bryant Hall residents may not move in until Saturday, August 15. If participating in an approved early activity, residents will temporarily move into another hall during early activity. Email moveinhelp@ua.edu to arrange your move-in. Residents are responsible for moving their belongings over to Bryant Hall once their permanent space is available.

Optional Drop Off Days

To help with social distancing efforts, UA will offer optional drop off days on August 1-3 for students to receive their keys, set up their rooms and return at a later date, avoiding the limited crowds on move-In days. Once students drop off their belongings, they cannot stay on campus, but do not need to sign up for a move-in time and can simply return once move-in starts. Drop off days are an added convenience this year, but they are only an option, and students can sign up for an early or regular move-in time instead, if they wish.

2020 Move-in Times

Below are the anticipated move-In times for each residence hall. Residents must sign-up for a move-In time through the online check-in system when it opens on June 30. Students must have a fall assignment to select a move-in time.

Anticipated move-in days: August 4-18.

Please note, we are actively monitoring the COVID-19 situation and considering necessary changes to our typical Move-In schedule and processes in order to best protect the safety of our students, families, and staff. We encourage you to check back regularly for updates on Move-In, and we suggest that you do not make travel plans until more information is available.
