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 for more information on this process.
- Students will check-in at the Sanderson Center or the Dairy Science building BEFORE going to their residence hall on August 12, 2023. Please do not go straight to the residence hall. Upon your arrival, 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.

Tips for making your MVNU2MSU a smooth process
- Have your MSU ID card or at least a picture ID with you to confirm your identity.
- You have paid or enrolled in a payment plan for your fall student account expenses.
- Pack all your items into no more than 2 vehicles per student. Only 2 vehicles will be allowed in the unloading zones.
Bring all your needs in one driving trip from your primary residence.
Go shopping for supplies after traditional business hours during move-in days.
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:
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.
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.
- There MUST be at least 18 inches from the ceiling to the bed.
