UTSA Housing Move-In Fall 2022

Move In Recommendations

Listed below are our staff's recommendations to help your process run more smoothly!

  • Residents, have your helper drive your car (if able) so that you can remain at the property with your belongings after unloading
  • Potentially bring your own cart/dolly as the housing bins for move in are limited
  • Wear closed toed shoes to prevent stubbed toes
  • Drink plenty of water! It's hot here in San Antonio in August!
  • Be patient with our staff and volunteers as we do our best to help you transition into your new home away from home!
  • Move-In Schedule

    We are excited to welcome you to your new home in campus housing!

    Move-In will take place between August 15 - 19th. Please review this information carefully so that you may plan accordingly for your arrival to campus.
