Dear %%First Name%%:

As a new transfer student, you have the opportunity to participate in the University’s Transfer Welcome Days program, September 1-4. This program offers exciting and valuable activities to assist you in your transition to the U of M and to connect you with the community and campus.  We recognize many of the Transfer Welcome Days Programs occur before your assigned move-in day.  Because of this, we would like to invite you to participate in early move-in so you can attend these programs and have more time to get settled on campus.  For the full Transfer Welcome Days Schedule download the “New Transfer Students!” guide on the U Minnesota app. For details on how to download the app, please see here.

There is a $24 fee per day that is associated with the early move-in process.  The Orientation & First-Year Programs office will pay these fees contingent upon your attendance at Transfer Welcome Days.  You have the option to move in on Thursday, September 1 or Friday, September 2.

Thursday Move-In
If you want to move into your residence hall Thursday, September 1, you may do so for an early move-in fee of $24, but the fee will be waived if you attend the Tailgate and Football Game event Thursday, September 1.  If you request early move-in and do not attend the event, you will be charged a total of $48 to your account.  If you would like to move in on Thursday, September 1, please complete an early move-in request at here.  This must be completed by Monday, August 15.

Friday Move-In
If you want to move into your residence hall Friday, September 2, you may do so for an early move-in fee of $24, but the fee will be waived if you attend the Transfer Kickoff event Friday, September 2.  If you request early move-in and do not attend this event, you will be charged $24. If you would like to move in on Friday, September 2, please complete an early move-in request here. This must be completed by Monday, August 15.

MOVE-IN TIMES
If you move into your residence hall on Thursday or Friday, you must do so between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. Please contact Housing and Residential Life if you have questions or concerns about your move-in arrangements.
