POLICIES AND HOW-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Early Move-In

Early Move-in is defined as when a student would like to move in to on-campus housing earlier than the official opening/move-in date outlined in their lease agreement/contract. Approval must be obtained prior to move-in and there may be a fee assessed for each day they are living on campus before the official opening/move-in date.

All on-campus residents must complete a mandatory online Annual Housing Orientation prior to moving into your residence hall or Corps of Cadets hall or prior to scheduling your apartment check-in appointment. Refer to the Annual Housing Orientation section for more detailed information.

Residence halls have an official date every semester when they open for occupancy. If a resident needs to move in before the official opening date, approval must be obtained. Once the resident has their assignment they may apply for early move-in online by logging into myHousing Portal and clicking on the legacy portal link in the middle of the page.  Then sign in again and click on Early Arrival Request.  There is an early move-in fee assessed for each day they are living on campus before the official opening date.

Corps halls have an official date every semester when they open for occupancy.  If a cadet needs to move in before the official opening date, they must be on the Approved for Early Arrival list provided to Residence Life by Corps of Cadets Operations & Training. Any cadet not on this Approved for Early Arrival list will not be allowed to move in early unless they contact Lt. Col. John Fleming at jfleming@corps.tamu.edu and receive approval from him. There is no additional early arrival fee assessed for approved cadets.

The University Apartments have an official date every semester when they open for occupancy. If a resident needs to move in before the official opening date, approval must be obtained.  Please email Housing@tamu.edu to submit your early move in request. Approvals for early move-in are dependent upon unit availability. There is an early move-in fee assessed for each day they are living on campus before the official opening date.
