MVNU2MSU 2022 is August 13-15, 2022!

NOTE: Housing & Residence Life will not offer isolation/quarantine space. 

MVNU2MSU (Movin' You to MSU) are the move-in days event each Fall semester. Students will be able to sign up for a move-in time slot in late July. The student will be able to select an open date and time for the centralized move-in process. Students will be checked in and greeted by move-in volunteers, including faculty, staff, and even MSU leadership to assist in their move. It is a fun day to make new friends and get settled into your new home away from home!

Move in day at Hurst Hall


Students will sign up for move-in time slots in late July. Early move-in for specific groups will be announced by each organization. Students will need to check their MS State email or the housing portal for more information on this process.

Students will check-in at the Sanderson Center (north campus - 225 Bailey Howell Dr.) or the atrium between the Poultry Science and Animal & Dairy Science buildings (south campus and Hull Hall - 325 Wise Center Drive) BEFORE going to their residence hall on August 13 and 14. See the campus map for location details. Please do not go straight to the residence hall. Upon your arrival, staff and volunteers will be on hand to direct you to your residence hall. 

If you are unable to arrive at their specific time slot, you will be able to check-in at your residence hall on Monday, August 15th and thereafter during traditional business hours. Each student will need their MSU ID card to check-in.

The ID Card office in 108 Allen Hall will be open at specific times during Move-in. If you do not have your ID card, you will need to pick it up at their office before going to check in location.

Please make sure to review the policy for charges on any damages to the Residence Hall rooms as you are preparing to decorate. 

We are excited to welcome your student HOME!



Students moving in to Griffis Hall

Students, check your msstate email throughout July and August for move-in specifics and schedule your move to campus appointment. We will also continue to send updated information to prepare you for your arrival.

Tips for making your MVNU2MSU a smooth process:

  1. Have your MSU ID card or at least a picture ID with you to confirm your identity.

  2. You have paid or enrolled in a payment plan for your fall student account expenses

  3. Pack all your items into no more than 2 vehicles per student. Only 2 vehicles will be allowed in the unloading zones. 

  4. Bring all your needs in one driving trip from your primary residence. Go shopping for supplies after traditional business hours during move-in days.

*NOTE: We will not be able to accommodate after-hours check-ins. Please contact our office to work with you on a move-in plan for the next move-in or business day.

Emergency card: Every resident is required to complete an Emergency Contact e-form to be kept on file with the Department of Housing and Residence Life. This form must be completed prior to check-in and can be found here: HRL Emergency Contact e-Form.

#HelloHailstate Questionnaire:  Please answer the questions here for the #HelloHailState Questionnaire to help us create a community where you will grow and learn during your time on campus.

Lofting Beds - Many students are interested in lofting their beds. The construction of bunk beds and lofts must be inspected by Maintenance and Facilities, (662) 325-2190, as soon as you have checked in at your residence hall. MSU officials will inspect and approve or reject the completed project. Cinder blocks or any other non-approved device used to elevate or bunk beds are prohibited. Lofts are permitted in residence halls as long as they comply with the following: no furniture provided may be removed from the room, nothing can be bolted to the walls, and there MUST be at least 18 inches from the ceiling to the bed.
