2019 Fall Move-In General Information:

Specific move-in information will be emailed to all incoming (both first-year, transfer and returning) residents.

There will be two move-in days for fall 2019:

Tuesday, September 3, 2019 for all returning students (including North Hall residents).

Dash Passes

Print off the dash pass for your hall, write in the information and leave on your dash board during move-in.

Move-In Schedule

Please follow the move-in schedule according to your assignment letter you receive via your FSU email. 

To mitigate the expected heavy traffic on campus, move-in times are staggered. The schedule is generally set so that roommates arrive during the same time block. Please refer to the schedules linked below for your specific hall and move-in time. By moving in according to that schedule, and packing judiciously, you will assist us in minimizing check-in lines while also assisting University and local police as they manage vehicle congestion and traffic flow in the vicinity of campus.

If you cannot arrive at your scheduled time, please arrive as close as possible to that time.

Please note that staff will not be available for check in prior to 8:00 a.m. If you plan to arrive on campus later than 5:00 p.m. on September 3rd, please e-mail us (residencelife@framingham.edu with your hall and room number included) so that an alternative time can be scheduled and so that we can advise the staff members in your hall and hold your assignment.
