Move-in Process

2 Students with suitcases on Move-in Day

Make Your Move-in Day a Breeze!

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.

IMPORTANT REMINDERS

All residents and guests are required to wear a face covering during the entire move-in process.
For health and safety reasons, only 2 guests per resident may help with move-in. Guests will need to pass a health assessment at check-in.
Health Screening icon To help minimize traffic congestion, only 1 vehicle will be allowed to the unloading area. Additional vehicles will be re-routed to the long term parking area in Lot 20. We recommend that you do not bring multiple cars, however, as long term parking is limited.
Health Screening icon To help you move your belongings, moving bins will be available at all communities except for University Park South. We also recommend that you bring your own handtruck or dolly. Moving bins are approximately 48"L x 24"W x 48"H.
Health Screening icon Do not come to Move-in with an ESA/service animal unless you have received pre-approval from DPRC and completed the ESA addendum.

WHEN TO ARRIVE

AT YOUR ASSIGNED MOVE-IN DAY AND TIMESLOT | To ensure the health and safety of the residential community, residents have been assigned a specific timeslot to move in. Your assigned Move-in timeslot will show on your Check-in Pass (available on the last page of your Move-in Confirmation on the SF State Housing Portal).

IMPORTANT NOTE: Please do not arrive any earlier or later than your scheduled time. If you arrive early, you will be required to wait to your scheduled 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.
