UTSA Housing Move-In Fall 2020

Outlined below, students living on campus may review their options for our Social Distanced Move-In between Monday, August 10, 2020 and Sunday, August 23, 2020. Please review this information carefully so that you may plan accordingly for your arrival to campus.

General Check-In Information

All student check-ins will take place by appointment only. All assigned students will receive appointment time sign-up options on Sunday, August 9, 2020 to their UTSA email account (abc123@my.utsa.edu). Please be sure to select the check-in option and appointment that will best suit your needs when you receive this email. Students should only sign-up for their appointment time using their UTSA email account.

In order to check-in, all students should report to your residential area with their UTSA ID – you will need this to check into your room. If you have not yet received your UTSA ID, please bring a government issued ID, passport, or high school photo ID.

Upon Arrival, to ensure proper social distancing, only students checking-in should enter their City Center (Front Desk Area). Additionally, each student should bring no more than 2 people to assist with moving in their items. If you arrive prior to your appointment time, do not enter the City Center until your appointment time and practice social distancing upon entry.

To ensure the safety and comfort of all students moving in, please adhere to following during your move-in process:

  • Masks are required at all times!
  • Minimize close contact with others - practice social distancing!
  • Visitors/Helpers - outside of assisting with move-in, no visitors or guests from outside your residence hall are permitted in the residential areas.
  • Elevators and stairwells. Please use stairs when possible, especially when coming downstairs. Only share an elevator with one other person.
  • Reach out to your roommates! Communicate about when you plan to move-in so you can coordinate moving in on different dates and times.
