Early Move-In

Where Will I Live During Sorority Recruitment?

Women participating in fall formal recruitment living on-campus will be allowed to move into their residence on either August 8 or 9, 2019, depending on their residence hall. Women living off-campus will need to make arrangements to move into their apartment or house prior to the start of recruitment. Neither UA nor the UA Panhellenic is responsible for providing housing accommodations for women living off-campus during the week of recruitment.

Is There a Cost for Early Move-In?

Yes. If you are requesting to move into your on-campus housing prior to the August 18, 2019 Regular UA Move-In schedule there is an additional fee of $106.00. This additional cost covers items such as utilities for the extra days, lot security and various Move-In contractors. The added cost will be included in the recruitment charge at the time of checkout. Please note that the Early Move-In option is only available to students who have been assigned on-campus housing for the 2019-2020 academic year. Individuals living off-campus will need to make alternate arrangements for early move-in.

How Does Early On-Campus Move-In Work?

The online Move-In sign-up process will begin in June 2019. Students who have registered for recruitment prior to June 1 will be able to sign up for an early move-in time through their housing application. Students who do not register before June 1 may experience  a 2-3 day delay in accessing early move-in times online. Students can email moveinhelp@ua.edu for scheduling assistance. Students who do not have a Move-In time by late July will be assigned a time by Housing and Residential Communities (HRC).

At the end of July, all students will receive an email with their check-in date and time, driving directions, and parking instructions sent to their UA Crimson email account. This email must be used during Move-In, so be sure to bring it with you.

In order to make the Move-In process as easy and efficient as possible, the number of students who can move in at each time during the day is limited. Allowing students to continue to select Move-In times that are already filled makes the process more difficult for families, students, and volunteers assisting with the process. We appreciate your understanding and your selection of another time if your first choice is already filled.

NOTE: Please arrive on your assigned day and time. If you arrive outside of your assigned Move-In period, you will be directed to a holding area and will be required to wait until your assigned time or until move-in operations have ceased for the day.

NOTE ON TUTWILER: Due to ongoing construction projects on the Tutwiler block, HRC is still working with campus partners to finalize the Tutwiler move-in schedule by floor. Tutwiler residents will have specific times of day on August 7-9 available based on floors so that we can move all residents in efficiently. Students who are assigned to Tutwiler will receive information on days and times available to their floor in late May via Crimson email.

What if my Move-In time is on the day of Sorority Convocation?

Convocation Is at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, August 10, 2019, at Coleman Coliseum. This is a casual event, as it is understood that most students will have spent the majority of the day moving into their residence hall rooms. Women participating in sorority recruitment should have no concern about moving in on the day of convocation. Shorts and t-shirts are entirely appropriate for this event.
