Move-in Day Information

What to expect on Move-in Day

Move-in Day is the start of your college career. The day will be very busy and crowded, as the campus' 240 plus residents will be arriving and moving in the residence halls the same day. This page is presented to help provide you information and guidance to make your Move-in Day experience a smooth transition from home to campus.

In the fall we use a staggered check-in schedule. Students approved for priority check-in may check-in starting at 10:00 a.m.  All other students may begin to check-in starting 12:00 noon. If you arrive before your designated check-in time, you'll be asked to wait, so please make arrangements accordingly.

When you arrive, go to your assigned residence hall and park outside.  Please leave your belongings in your car until you have checked-in, completed your housing paperwork, and received your room key.  Bring a picture ID with you.  Signs will direct you to the sign-in desk where you can get in line to pick up your keys and paperwork.  After you have your keys, you can unload your car, and move your belongings to your room! We won't be able to make any accommodations for students who arrive on campus before the move-in date, so please make your travel arrangements accordingly.

Your assignment will be held until midnight on the day before classes start. Depending on our need for space, students who check in after this date may be reassigned.

Priority Check-in

To assist in expediting the move-in process, the Student Life Office allows a select groups of residents to request approval for priority check-in. Students with a GPA of 3.00 or higher, participation in a Living Learning Community, or students who attended a summer registration day, can email reslife@asub.edu to request approval for Priority Check-in. Students approved for Priority Check-in will be required to complete and return their check-in paperwork one week before Move-in Day (August 9, 2018). Priority check-in students simply have to show a picture ID to receive their room key.

Needed Items

ASU-Beebe provides a bed, mattress, closet, dresser, desk, chair, sink, smoke alarm, mini blinds, cable TV connection and wired and wireless internet for each room. Each hall also has a computer lab, a game room, and study lounges. We suggest you bring almost anything that will make you feel at home in your new room. Below is a list of some essentials that you do not want to forget.

What to Bring Check List

Room Changes

If you would like to request a different room after moving in you may do that during Room Change Week, which is second full week of classes. The first week is used to ensure that everyone moves in and that everyone has a chance to acclimate to college. Room changes will not be approved during the first week of classes. Residents will be informed about the room change process in a floor meeting at the beginning of Room Change Week.
