Move-In Registration

Move-in registration opens on May 24, 2023 and closes on July 19, 2023.

To ensure an efficient registration process, residents will receive a time slot to log into the student portal to register for a move-in arrival time. Time slots will be generated via a lottery, and residents will receive an email to their Auburn email account with their time slot. Residents will log into the portal during their time slot to register for a move-in day and their arrival time. If you are unable to access the portal during your designated time slot, do not worry because you will be able to access the portal at any time after your initial time slot opens. Students will be able to change their move-in time, if space is available, by logging into their housing student portal and cancelling their original time. Students that do not register for a move-in date will be automatically assigned a move-in day and time during our Regular Move-In.

Important Information about Move-In and Move-In Registration

It is important to be aware that some buildings may have later move-in dates than others due to renovation projects or other reasons (i.e. summer residence hall). Please see below for the earliest move-in date available for the following locations.

Holloway Hall (Village) – regular move-in starting on August 7

Talon Hall (Village) – early move-in starting on August 3 (floors 1 and 2 only), regular move-in starting on August 7

Please note that these dates are subject to change based off construction schedules and project completion dates.

Move-In Arrival Times

The first arrival time will be at 7 a.m. (CT) and the last arrival time will be at 3 p.m. (CT) each day. Residents will choose their arrival time slot during move-in registration.

Residents will not be able to move into their residence hall until their designated arrival time. If you arrive before your arrival time, you will be asked to come back at your designated time. Your arrival time is when you should arrive on campus, not necessarily when you will be moving into your room.

Arrival and Unloading Belongings

At Village, Quad, and South Donahue, Auburn University Housing (AUH) will be placed at tents that will function as check-in locations. Hill residents will check in at Sasnett Hall. 160 Ross and 191 College will check in at tables located on each level of the parking garage.

Upon arrival to campus, residents will proceed directly to their designated check-in location.

Residents will arrive at the designated check-in location during their move-in arrival time. Residents will show staff their arrival time email and a photo ID and will give their name, hall and room number. AUH staff will check in the resident online and hand the resident their room key. Residents will receive a check-in email that will include a Room Condition Form (RCF) to be filled out after arriving to the room, before the student begins moving in. Once their arrival time has been verified by a staff member and they have received their room key, they will be able to proceed to their unloading zone.

Check-In Locations For Each Area:

*Pindrop provides location of entrance to housing area for move-in

For residents moving into 191 College, all move-in traffic must travel down Wright Street from West Magnolia and turn right into the garage.

Check-In Process

After checking in and receiving their room key, residents will proceed to the unloading area at their building. Maps will be available on our website prior to move-in so you will know how to get to your residential area.

When residents arrive to their building, they will unload their items immediately. Residents can place their items on the curb while they move their vehicle from the unloading zone to their designated parking area. If a resident has other people with them, we recommend having one person move the car while the resident or someone else waits with their items.

160 Ross and 191 College residents will check in and unload items in the parking garage at each community.

Residents will be limited to two vehicles, and no box trucks and/or trailers will be allowed.

To provide for a more efficient move-in over several days, no volunteers or equipment will be available during move-in. We encourage residents to bring their own move-in equipment, such as wagons or dollies, to assist with moving in. Do not forget to write your name on your personal items.

Due to no volunteers or equipment being available, we highly encourage residents to pack light. Please read below for some tips regarding packing light:

  • Coordinate with your roommate before buying shareable items such as a mini fridge, microwave, shower curtain, etc.
  • Visit our checklist page on the Auburn University Housing website for a list of items to bring/not to bring.
  • Make sure the boxes you pack are light and easy to carry.
  • Use your storage bins as packing boxes.
  • Focus on the necessities. Pack only what you need or what you cannot buy once you arrive to Auburn.


Packing light is key to a quick and easy move-in. Remember that residents and their guests will be responsible for unloading and carrying items to their room.


Parking During Move-In

Once residents finish unloading their belongings in the unloading area, all vehicles need to be moved to the designated parking lot for the area listed below.

Parking After Move-In

Residents will need to move their vehicle to their registered parking location or area after their move-in day.

**Hill residents: should move their vehicle to the Hayfield gravel lot until all the move-in days are completed on August 10.

For more information regarding parking permits for the academic year, please visit the Parking Services website.


Doors will be open from 7 a.m. until 5 p.m. (CT). Doors will lock at 5 p.m. (CT), and residents will need their Tiger Card to have access to their residence halls after moving in. For more information on how to obtain your Tiger Card, please visit the Tiger Card website.
