Move In Must Knows

Plan Ahead

Arrival Times

All on-campus residents must select an arrival time during their class year’s designated move-in days. The arrival times help us make sure that we are prepared for you to move into your College House, such as ensuring adequate street parking and staff on hand to help you get a moving cart, PennCard, and more!

Arrival times start on the hour and are for an hour only. You are welcome to arrive anytime within that hour. You can continue to move in after your arrival time, but please keep in mind that you may not have street parking access so that we can support the next arrival time block.

Please review the dates and times below, and then go to MyHomeAtPenn to select your arrival time starting in the afternoon on Tuesday, July 6. You are able to change your arrival time up until Monday, August 16.

If you are moving into Hill, we will pre-assign your arrival time based on your room location in the building. This will help us provide an efficient move-in experience for our residents. You will receive your arrival time on July 6. We encourage students to keep their assigned arrival time.

Guest Passes

We know that having family support you on move-in day is important. We are encouraging students to register no more than two guests.

You will be able to sign up your guests via the RHS Portal starting in the afternoon on Tuesday, July 6. This process will generate a mobile guest pass, which each guest must show – in addition to photo ID – to the Allied Guard at the turnstile of the residential building. Your guests are not able to stay overnight.
