Spring 2020 dorms

ISU Housing and Dining will hold digital events, in order still be a "home away from home" for students.

Illinois State University Housing Services sent an email to students living on campus updating them about how the move-in process will work for the fall semester amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Move-in for the 2020-2021 academic school year will take place from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Aug. 7-16.

UHS stated that students will have to set up an appointment to move in through the Housing and Dining Portal.

The email highlighted that the process is “appointment based this year to limit the total number of people moving in during a specific time and allow for proper social distancing.”

The email directs students to the UHS move-in website for more information regarding the main adjustments to the move-in process this year. 

Adjustments included, but are not limited to, required face coverings in all buildings, a limit of two additional helpers to help students move in and no “Curb Birds” or other move-in volunteers available.

Room and roommate assignments for students living on campus will be available in the Housing and Dining Portal starting July 23.
