Fall Welcome and Move In

Move In and Fall Welcome

We're looking forward to seeing you on campus! Most first-year students move in on Thursday, August 22. (Honors students move in Wednesday, August 21.) Most returning students move in on Friday and Saturday, August 23 and 24.
Moving to SLU

Remember to bring your SLU ID and move-in parking permit. Each residence hall has a dedicated parking lot for unloading. After that time, we ask parents and guardians to park in the Olive/Compton garage for the duration of their visit.

Students will get their key and Metro pass at check-in. Forgot your room assignment? Check it in mySLU under "Tools."

Tip: Label all your boxes with your name, hall and room number.
