MOVE-IN PROCESS

To help ensure that your move-in is as smooth and efficient as possible, carefully review the below information prior to your Move-in Day. It is important to familiarize yourself with the move-in process as well as the check-in location and unloading area specific to your building as the process and locations for each building differs. We also recommend that you also check traffic conditions on the day of your move to ensure that you arrive at your scheduled move-in time.

WHEN TO ARRIVE

To minimize risk and allow for greater physical distancing, residents have been assigned a specific timeslot to move in (sent to your SF State email account). Please do not arrive any earlier or later than your scheduled time.

If you arrive earlier than your scheduled time, you will be required to wait until your designated time. If you arrive later than your scheduled time, you may need to wait until move-in staff can accommodate you. Wait time could range from 6-8 hours. 

AFTER HOURS MOVE-IN | If you have been pre-approved to move-in after hours, you may pick up your keys at your community desk (see the desk information on the right side of this page). Please email the Student Housing Office with your planned arrival time.
