The Office of Residence Life looks forward to welcoming new and continuing students back to the residence halls for the Fall 2021 semester. The move-in process has been extended to provide students and families more flexibility and to reduce congestion on campus.
It is important that all students and guests who come on campus do a self-check for COVID-19 symptoms. If anyone has a fever or symptoms or has been around anyone with symptoms, please do not come to campus.
Students and guests of new students are encouraged to bring their own hand sanitizer and personal protective equipment (PPE) such as facial coverings for move-in. Facial coverings are required since it will be challenging to maintain physical distance.
We strongly encourage students bring only minimal items to the residence halls and not to bring in large furniture. Moving trucks and box trucks will not be permitted. Move-in assistance will be provided on new student move-in days. Additionally, a limited number of move-in carts will be available for student use in each residence hall Wednesday, Aug. 25 through Monday, Aug. 30.
For Fall 2021, students will select their own move-in appointment time during the scheduled move-in dates. Students will be emailed appointment setting instructions this summer.
- Move-in appointments will be offered beginning Wednesday, Aug. 25.
- New international student move-in appointments will be offered Wednesday, Aug. 25 and Thursday, Aug. 26, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
- New student move-in appointments will be offered Wednesday, Aug. 25 through Friday, Aug. 27, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
- Continuing student move-in appointments will be offered evenings Wednesday, Aug. 25 through Friday, Aug. 27, and all day Saturday, Aug. 28 through Sunday, Aug. 29.
We strongly encourage that students do not arrange their travel until they have a confirmed move-in appointment time. It is important that families and students arrive on the day and time assigned to them to prevent excessive traffic and congestion on campus and improve the move-in experience for the thousands of students and guests arriving on campus. Additionally, we must limit the number of family members or friends to two per student during the scheduled move in appointment time.
More information regarding residential arrival and assignments will be communicated in July to the student’s Spartan email address from the Office of Residence Life.
Fall 2021 Move-In Maps will be available in July.
The countdown to move-in has started, with Instagram pics and Twitter posts, by new UT students who are #UTampaBound.
