Move-In Process

Spring 2022 Move-In Process

The following is a summary of what to expect during Spring 2022 Move-in, including all COVID related policies. Take a minute to read through to plan your arrival on January 8th!

How do I check in? 

If you are returning to the same room you had for the Fall 2021 semester: Complete the “Spring Check in” process on the MyHousing Portal any time after January 2nd to confirm your Spring 2022 assignment and to let us know you still plan to return to campus. You are able to move back into your room starting at 9:00am on January 8th.

New to campus and Spring reassignment residents: You will check in and pick up your key at your Community Office in person any time after the residence halls open at 9:00am on January 8th. You can view the details of your assignment, roommate information, and community office location under the “My Assignment” tab on the MyHousing Portal.

There is no early arrival request process for Spring 2022 move-in.

Move-In Appointments

There are no check-in appointments needed for new or returning residents. New residents for Spring 2022 should follow the move-in instructions provided to them in a separate email.

COVID-19 Vaccinations

Getting your COVID-19 vaccine and booster are the best way you can contribute to a typical, in-person experience at Carolina and to prevent the spread of the virus. 

Carolina Together Testing Program

The University will continue use your vaccination status to determine your requirements for regular monitoring tests through the Carolina Together Testing Program.  Detailed information can be found on the Carolina Together and the Carolina Housing websites.

Prior-to-Arrival Testing

Prior-to-arrival testing will be required for all students living in residence halls, regardless of their vaccination status. This test will need to be completed in the window of 72 hours before arrival on campus. The portal to accomplish this will be active early in the new year and will be found on the Carolina Together website. This requirement must be completed prior to moving into the residence halls. As indicated in the Chancellor’s message, if your prior-to-arrival test comes back positive, please do not return to campus.

As a reminder, prior-to-arrival testing is required for all students living in our campus residence halls. Thank you in advance for your efforts to be tested; we know for some of you that this process has been challenging because of testing availability.  If you are able to obtain a test but do not receive the result prior to your return, you may move-in but need to remain in your room and leave only to receive medical care or for meals until you are able to receive your result.  If you miss class while awaiting results, please communicate directly with your instructors. Once received, you must upload your results and report any positive result to Campus Health so proper follow-up and support can be provided. If you have tested positive within the past 90 days, you may also upload a copy of that test result and you will not be required to have a prior to arrival test.


Pre-Arrival Health Check

Before returning to campus, all residents and their move-in helpers should check for symptoms using the COVID-19 screening checklist at Anyone who has COVID-19, who is exhibiting COVID-19 symptom(s), or who is unvaccinated and a close contact of a positive person should not come to campus and should consult their health care provider. 

Masks/Face Coverings

Residents and move-in helpers will be required to wear a covering/mask any time they are in the common areas of the building (in restrooms, lobbies, elevators, stairwells, during the check-in process, and while they bring belongings into the resident’s room/suite/apartment). Residents and move-in helpers will not be required to wear a covering/mask once they enter the student’s residence hall room/suite/apartment.

For more information about the effectiveness of masks visit the CDC Coronavirus website

Use of Common Areas

Restrooms and other common areas in the residence halls will be open for resident and move-in helpers as long as mask requirements and other rules are followed.

Fall 2022 Move-In information will be shared after May 2022. Check back later or follow us on social media for Fall 2022 Move-In updates.
