Students move in to residence halls with COVID-19 measures in place

After receiving a negative COVID-19 test result and attending orientation sessions at the TU Arrival Center, students began moving into their on-campus residence halls this week. Move-In this year will be conducted differently this year with several COVID-19 protocols in place, including scheduled move-in times for each student and a limit of one parent or guest assisting students moving in order to decrease room and building occupancy.

Additionally, students were asked to utilize Housing and Residence Life’s new ship-to-room model so their belongings could be delivered to their rooms before arriving. To decrease the handling of others' belongings, Move-In Krewe volunteers will not be available this year, however Housing and Residence Life students will be available to assist with navigating the campus, residence halls and check-in.

Move-In began Monday, Aug. 10, and will continue until Monday, Aug. 17, with the first four days designated for new students and the remaining four days for returning students. For more information on fall 2020 Move-In, click here.
