    What To Expect During Move-In

    Having a little move-in anxiety? Totally understandable if so! Check out this list so you can be prepared for Temple University August 2019 Move-In:

    1. Meningitis Vaccine Compliance

    In order to move into your Temple University residence hall, you must be compliant with the Pennsylvania State Law regarding the meningitis vaccine. This means you either received the vaccine or you signed a waiver. You won’t be able to have access to your room otherwise.

    2. Move-In Help

    It's a good idea to bring family and friends to help you move into your new home. If possible, bring at least 2 other people. At minimum, you'll need someone to go park the car, another person to wait with the belongings on the sidewalk in front of your residence hall, and a third person to check out a cart.

    3. FREE Parking! (for one car)

    Each student moving in is allotted one free, two-hour parking spot for move-in. You will receive a hangtag that will be displayed in your vehicle. Be sure to park in a Temple lot, otherwise you risk the possibility of being fined or towed.

    4. Tents for Weather Protection

    It's usually blazing hot in August in Philly so we've put up white tents along the residence halls for students and their families to unload belongings. (And don't forget personal sun protection like sunglasses, hats, and sunscreen!) But it has also rained during move-in in years past so make sure you check the weather for your specific move-in date.

    5. FREE Cart Rental!

    We will have carts available for students to check out using their Temple University ID, driver's license, or state ID. There's a limited quantity of carts and you may have to wait for one to become available.

    6. Please Be Patient

    We've got 5,000+ students moving in over a few days time. At times there will be lines to get into the building, to check in, to use an elevator, or to check out a cart. We'll work as quickly as we can keep the lines moving.

    7. Bring Water

    Make sure you bring enough water (and snacks!) You won't want to get dehydrated or too hungry during the move in process. Move in is a lot of work and it'll most likely be really hot outside too! Stay as comfortable as possible.

    8. Room Condition Report (RCR)

    During check-in you'll receive an RCR which details the condition of your room. You'll need to complete the RCR and return to Residential Life Staff.

    9. Room Key and Mail Box

    During check-in you'll receive your room key and either a mail box key or combination code.

    10. Microfridge Rental

    If you have ordered a Microfridge, it will be waiting in your room already plugged in!
