Winthrop University: Residence Life - Move in Web Page

Move-In IconMove-In August 2022


Move-In Day

One of the most memorable days of your college career is the first time you move into your residence hall. Learn everything you need to know about packing, loading, unloading, unpacking and finally setting up your room.


Centralized Check In Process

To cut down on traffic for move-in, Residence Life and the Winthrop University Police Department have worked together to create a centralized check-in location. In order to move-in , you must drive to the Shack at Winthrop Lake to receive your room keys.

Even though you may be familiar with campus or prefer to use a GPS, we have adjusted normal traffic patterns for August 2022 Move-In traffic. Campus Police and Parking Officials will be stationed around campus, monitoring traffic, to move students in as quickly as possible. If you try to come in from a different direction or go directly to your residence hall, it will delay getting checked in to your residence hall.


Move-In Assistance

The Move-In Volunteer program is returning for August 2022; however we can not guarantee volunteers at every station so we encourage you to be mindful of what items you bring to campus, in addition to who is assisting you. August move-in will be hot, humid, and crowded therefore we encourage you keep small children and the elderly at home to reduce stress during an already emotional time for our families.

All residence halls have elevators except Margaret Nance and Roddey Halls. Residence Life does have a limited number of moving bins; however, we recommend if you own a handcart to bring it for your move-in.
