We are very excited to welcome you to Residence Life at Texas A&M University!
To help make your transition to college life as smooth as possible, move-in information will be posted here throughout the Fall semester. Don’t forget to check your TAMU email frequently so you don’t miss important emails – like more detailed instructions for move in based on your building or hall.
Here you will find information about early move in information for Residence Halls, Apartments and Corps Housing.
Early Move-In varies if you are in Corps of Cadet Halls, Residence Halls, or Apartments. All Early Move-Ins require a request. If a request for early move-in is approved, there is a charge associated with moving in earlier than above published dates.
Earliest arrival dates and procedures vary by community. Visit our procedures page to learn how to request early move-in.
Living in a community space can be a lot of fun. To make sure our buildings are as safe as possible we have some items that we recommend every student bring, and items that are prohibited in the our facilities. Please review this list carefully before packing and coming to campus. You can find more specifics in our resident handbooks. We also provide some extras you may want to purchase or rent. These Add-Ons include refrigerator/microwave combo appliances, linen packages, personal safes, and more. Find the details under the Add-Ons on our Amenities page.
Below is a relatively complete list of all required and desirable packing items provided to Freshman Cadets. Please note more specific instructions will be provided by the Corps of Cadets Operations & Training area. Please direct questions to the Corps Area Housing Office.
