Spring Semester Arrival Information



Important Notice Regarding Spring 2022



In light of the current evolving COVID-19 situation in Connecticut and nationally, UConn is making changes to the spring semester in order to help protect the health of our communities that will affect all students:

  • Residential move-in for the Storrs and Stamford campuses will be moved back by two weeks, meaning move-in will occur over the weekend of January 29, not January 15. During this two- week period, the university is asking all students to take careful precautious to help avoid exposure to COVID-19, meaning consistent masking (especially in public settings) and avoiding gatherings, particularly those that are indoors. 

Students who are guaranteed housing for Spring 2022 at the Storrs or Stamford campuses will receive an important email on January 3, 2022 with additional information.

Spring 2022 Arrival Dates

Due to a possible weather event on Saturday we are making adjustments to this weekend’s move-in schedule.  We now will also be open on Friday from 9:30am to 3:30pm for students to receive keys as well as Sunday from 10:00am to 6:00pm.   If you would like to adjust your time to Friday you can log into your My Housing to adjust your move in time to Friday by Wednesday night at 11:59pm.  We strongly encourage students who need to pick up keys to sign up for an arrival time on Friday or Sunday to avoid traveling in potentially inclement weather on Saturday.

Students who are returning to the same assignment and already have their room keys will also be able to return to campus anytime starting at 7:00am on Friday morning (January 28) through Sunday, January 30 and are not required to sign up for an arrival time. Students in this group must complete the self check-in inside of MyHousing.
