Week of Welcome (WOW) and the official university move-in begin on Wednesday, August 15. While residence hall contracts begin on Saturday, August 11, WSU highly encourages students to arrive for move-in on Wednesday, August 15 to begin their successful college experience with WOW events beginning that night. There will be volunteers to assist on Saturday and Wednesday to make the moving process as smooth as possible. A few pre-arranged university programs do require early arrival and students will be notified of those dates.

Arriving later in the week is okay too, just have your student let us know about their plans by signing up. Upon arrival at the hall, students must first check in at the front desk to get important details and their designated room assignment. Each will need to have their CougarCard ID. Please keep in mind that pets are not allowed in the residence halls when moving in.

For specific information about moving your student into a WSU residence hall, visit the Housing website and select the hall. Move-in information is listed in the last section at the bottom of the page.
