Residence Hall Move-In

The "Big" day!

New Student Move-In - Saturday, September 3, 2022

For new students, move-in will be on Saturday, September 3. You will be pre-assigned a time slot for move-in that will be emailed to you, along with other detailed information, in early August. We ask that you please honor the time slot you are given to help make this day go smoothly for all students. If you are unable to make your pre-assigned slot, you will be allowed to check in from 1:00pm to 5:00pm on your assigned day. Due to necessary preparations, no one will be allowed to move in prior to 7:00am on their assigned day.

Move-in is an idling unload/drop-off process. The process of unloading must occur while the student is checking into their residence hall. We will have students available to help during this process. Once the car is unloaded, you will be directed to a nearby parking lot.

You will be pre-assigned a time slot for move-in that will be emailed to you along with other detailed information, in early August. We ask that you please honor the time slot you are given to help make this day go smoothly for all students checking in.

WHAT HAPPENS ON THE "BIG" DAY?

  • Starting the Day: You grab some breakfast, load the car, and arrive at MassArt for your move-in time and day
  • Salutations: You will be greeted by many MassArt leaders, returning students, staff and perhaps the College president as your car rolls up curbside to unload
  • Separation: This is where you (meaning the student) take a walk to the check-in table while family and friends unload the car. A helper will greet you at your car and start unloading. You will have 30-45 minutes to complete this process
  • From Start to Finish: We have this event planned! It will only take you an estimated 45 minutes to pull up curbside, unload your car, move in, get to your room, unload your belongings, and set-up shop
