MOVE-IN TIPS

- Don’t over pack – Be aware that students have limited space in their residence hall rooms and only one car load is strongly recommended. Rental trucks, trailers, and moving vans are not permitted. Delivery companies will not be permitted to deliver until after 5 p.m. on each move-in day. Furniture provided in residence hall rooms must remain in the rooms. To view a virtual tour of your room assignment, please visit www.jsums.edu/housing/viewbuildings/. Parents can help guard against property loss or damage by carrying renter’s insurance on your student.
- Be sure all your belongings are contained in boxes – Loose items are easily dropped or lost.  Please make every effort to pack all your belongings inside boxes or containers.  That includes hanging clothes, toiletries, shoes, etc.
- Label your boxes – We will do our best to make sure your belongings make to your room but please make that process easy on our move-in crew by labeling every box and every item you are moving into your room with your name and your room number
Be patient!
