We can't wait for you to check in to your new home at Eastern Illinois University! Move-In Day is a busy and exciting time for both students and parents. We are sure that you have a lot of questions about your new home away from home. If you are unable to find the answers here, call the Housing and Dining Services Office.
New Incoming Freshmen and New Transfer Students will move back to campus Thursday, August 18.
Returning Students will be permitted to back to campus between Friday, August 19, and Sunday, August 21.
Early Arrivals – Students who are part of an early arrival group must still register through the move-in sign-up system. Your move-in date/time will be communicated to you by your program director/leader/supervisor/coach/etc. and you will be able to choose a morning or afternoon block to move in on your scheduled date. Please visit the early arrival page to determine if this applies to you.
Ready to move in? Let’s start talking details.
Each resident should report to the residence hall or apartment complex to which they are assigned for check-in. At check-in, residents will receive their keys. A picture ID is required such as your panther card, driver’s license, state ID, passport, or military ID.
