Move In Information for New Students

Email sent to new residence hall students on July 8, 2020.  Please check your Michigan Tech email for your personal move in details.

Dear Student:

We are excited that in less than two months, you will be joining us here at Michigan Tech to begin your college journey. We know coming to campus for the first time is a cornerstone moment for you. Despite the COVID-19 challenges, our goal is to allow you to have a safe, wonderful check-in experience.

To achieve this, a community effort is needed from you and the rest of the Michigan Tech family. This fall, we’re calling on all students to take action and work together to keep the community safe from COVID-19. Residence Education and Housing Services is committed to doing our part and has planned a New Student Check-In Day that maximizes social distancing, outlines safety protocols for you and your guests, and allows you to safely move into the residence halls. With thousands of students moving in over the weekend, we need all students and their guests to do their part and adhere to these protocols to ensure the process remains safe. 

For fall 2020, all new students have been assigned a specific check-in time during one of two days: Friday, August 21, and Saturday, August 22. Your assigned check-in time is listed below and will soon appear on your MyMichiganTech account for your convenience. Please plan to arrive at your assigned time in order to help maximize social distancing over the weekend. You may bring two guests, who will be screened and permitted to go into the residence hall with you. We know you may be traveling long distances, but we ask that you arrive at your scheduled time.

We are also offering all students an additional opportunity to drop their property off at a scheduled time between July 31 and August 9. This is a new (and free) service to allow students to skip the traffic and drop off their property at their new campus home earlier. An email with the application link will be sent out the week of July 20. If you are interested, make sure to submit your application.

We want to ensure you are welcomed to the Husky community with a safe and positive experience. We will share more information about the check-in later in July to help you finalize your preparations. Until then, we hope you enjoy your summer!

Sincerely,
Matthew R. Weekley
Director of Housing Auxiliary Operations and Residence Education
