Western Michigan University is excited to welcome students to campus! Please refer to the chart below to see what date and, for new students, what time you should arrive.
The residence halls will not open their doors prior to the official move-in time, so you don’t need to arrive early to “beat the rush.”

Students are not able to move in earlier than their assigned move-in date. If you have a conflict, you are welcome to move in at a later time than your scheduled arrival day. You do not need to arrive on your assigned day.
Late arrival—Can I move in after my scheduled date?
You are welcome to move in any day after your assigned move-in date. Students who will be moving in after the first week of school should contact the Residence Life office so their room can be held.
