Welcome students!

The Office of Residence Life looks forward to welcoming new and continuing students back to the residence halls for the Spring 2023 semester. 

It is important that all students and guests who come to 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 are encouraged to bring their own hand sanitizer and personal protective equipment (PPE) such as facial coverings for move-in. Those who are not fully vaccinated should wear facial coverings 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. The University of Tampa welcomes outside storage and moving companies and their box trucks on campus to assist students and their families with their move-in and move-out process with the exception of designated University move-in days. Box trucks will not be permitted on campus from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. on University designated move-in days. For Spring 2023 move-in, this includes Thursday, Jan. 12, through Sunday, Jan. 15.

For Spring 2023, new students will select their own move-in appointment time during the scheduled move-in dates. Students will be emailed appointment-setting instructions to their Spartan email account:

  • New International Student Move-in begins Thursday, Jan. 12, at 9 a.m.
  • New Student Move-in begins Friday, Jan. 13, at 9 a.m.
  • Continuing Student Move-in begins Saturday, Jan. 14, at 9 a.m.

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 all 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 to the student's Spartan email address from the Office of Residence Life.
