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. Students must already be assigned to an on-campus housing facility in order to sign up for a move-in date. Follow this link to sign up: eiu.edu/apps/housing_move_in
All students must pre-register for a move-in date and time. The Move-In Sign Up system will open on July 21. Half-day timeslots on each date are offered on a first-come-first-served basis. More information will be sent to your EIU email account once the system opens.
Students who do NOT sign up for a move-in timeslot by August 6 will be assigned a date and time.
Please be very careful in choosing the best date and time that works for you. If you do need to adjust your move-in timeslot, you may log back into the sign-up system by August 6 to change your reservation. If you need to change your move-in date AFTER August 6, please contact Housing and Dining Services immediately at 217-581-5111.
