Residential Life and Housing would like to extend a warm welcome to all students participating in VCU 2017 Move-in. We are excited to have you be a part of our vibrant on-campus residential community for the 2017-18 academic year.

The best place to start your Move-in experience is to read through the information below and your hall specific Move-in information located in Move-in Guides section. There you will find check-in times, Move-In tips, parking information and more.

Download VCU RAM Guide and search “Move-in”. This app offers users quick access to Move-in information as well as alerts and messages from VCU Housing on Move-in day.

Lastly, remember to have fun! Moving in with 3,500 other students can be stressful, so we ask both students and their families to read all the Move-in information thoroughly to help make this process go as easy as possible.

If you have any questions, please send an email to vcuhousing@vcu.edu.


Move-in Tips


  • Make move-in easy - bring your own hand truck or cart - that way you do not have to wait for a cart to become available in order to move-in your belongings
  • Be selective about what you bring (you'll make memories and collect more treasures here at VCU!) - many students bring more than they need - remember, the more you pack, the more you have to move
  • Communicate and coordinate with roommates to make sure you do not bring duplicate items (no need for two TVs!)
  • Remember to bring your VCU ID with you to check in - if you have not yet been issued your VCU ID, you will need to have another form of identification when you check in
  • Loading zones are for unloading only - this may mean you will need to unload your vehicle on the curb and have someone wait with your belongings while you park and check in (Helpful tip: You will spend less time waiting with your belongings on the curb if you bring a hand truck or cart)
  • Label all items with name, room number, and contents to ensure that nothing is misplaced and items are easily located when unpacking
  • The VCU Police Department would like to remind you that larceny is the most reported crime on campus - please do not leave items unattended at any time
  • Move-in is hard work, so remember to stay hydrated
  • Once you are moved in, check out Welcome Week activities and other fun events in locations such as the University Student Commons, Cary Street Gym and the MCV Lawn
