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 Housing and Residence Life staff as well as 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!

Time Slots

Students will sign up for move-in time slots in late July. The official Move-in date for MVNU2MSU is Saturday, August 17. More information to come!


  • Students will go to their designated location to check-in BEFORE going to their residence hall on their move-in date. Please do not go straight to the residence hall. Upon your arrival, Housing and Residence Life staff 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 19th, and thereafter during traditional business hours.  
  • Each student will need their MSU ID card to check-in. The ID Card office at 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 the 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.

  • 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.
    • There MUST be at least 18 inches from the ceiling to the bed.
  • Merchandise to meet your new home needs
