As a department and university community, we are proud of the move-in process that we coordinate for our residential students. We have received positive feedback on our move-in week and we will continue to do our best to serve you on the day you arrive. With your help, we can continue our excellent system for getting you settled.
We know that families need to make arrangements for move in days. Below, you will find the dates and times that you can move into your hall and room. More information will be provided (including directions to your hall, and traffic patterns) as we get closer to the fall semester in August.
It is important that all students and families (including returning students) pay close attention to the following details as they will be changed to accommodate construction and other university events. Both move-in schedules and traffic patterns have been designed to accommodate our students in the best way possible.
Fall 2015 move in dates are as follows:
The logistics of the move in process require you to move in on your assigned day/time. We assign move in times based on your location (the further from La Crosse, the later the time to allow for travel). We do this for an efficient move in process and to ensure minimal wait times. Not adhering to the timeframe will cause delays in traffic, both for you and for other students.
Please continue to check your E-Mail for specific instructions on your move in date and time. The chart below indicates your specific hall's move in date and time frame by hall.
Winter and Spring move in dates are negotiated on a case-by-case basis with the Office of Residence Life. Please contact us to set up a time.

The Office of Residence Life at UWL provides bed frames and lofts in almost all rooms on campus at no additional cost. The side posts and rails are made of solid oak and are fully adjustable to provide our residents with flexibility to place their beds at a desired height. As a result, homemade bunking systems are not allowed to be used in our facilities. Bed parts are pre-included in all halls except Reuter; where you can get them with help from your Resident Assistant.
To aid you in your set up, please see the following image and instructional video
