Move-In Day:

IMPORTANT Fall 2020 Move-In Information

We are looking forward to your arrival on campus in September.  Please read through the information on this page carefully regarding specific move-in times


Move-In Times:

We hope you are excited to move in! You may have heard by now that you need to sign up for a move-in appointment. There is a limited capacity per appointment time slot in order to maintain proper social distancing. Please sign up as early as possible so that your preferred time slot is available.

Note: If your preferred time is not available, please be flexible. There are enough time slots available for all students.

It is a fairly simple process – just follow these steps: 

  1. On the week of August 14th, all residential students will receive an email from Residence Life providing them access to begin their Pre-Check In Process and to sign up for a move-in time and date. 

  2. First go to Eaglesnest via Wingspan and select “Residence Hall Pre-Check In Process.” This will take approximately 15 minutes to complete. After you complete it, you will receive a confirmation email to your Winthrop email with the COVID-19 Health Services screening form and the link for you to sign up for a move-in date and time for your residence hall. Keep this email and remember to complete the COVID-19 Health Services screening form no sooner than 24 hours prior to your campus arrival. Here are the steps to complete in order below: 

    1. Digitally Sign the Health Screening Acknowledgement and CDC Information Video  
    2. Room Key Acknowledgement  
    3. E-RCR (Electronic Room Condition Report) Acknowledgment  
    4. Emergency Contact Information 
    5. Medical Form (This information is kept in the event of a medical emergency in the residence hall.) 
      1. After you have completed all parts, you will receive the confirmation email “Residence Life Pre-Check-In Confirmation” Email and keep for your records for when you check-in in September. Remember to complete the COVID-19 Health Services screening form no sooner than 24 hours prior to your campus arrival. 

  3. In your confirmation email, select your residence hall and pick your move-in arrival appointment. Complete the necessary information. After you have submitted your form, you will receive a confirmation email and calendar reminder. If you want to change it, you can cancel and select a new date and time through your move-in appointment confirmation email. 

  4. Remember no sooner than 24 hours before you arrive to campus, print and complete the COVID-19 Health Services screening form. Be able to provide a copy of the Pre-Check In Confirmation email upon arrival to the Winthrop Coliseum parking lot for check-in.
