What happens at Check-in
On Saturday, August 19, all unloading for Move-in will take place on Grace Street, Pine Street, and the EE parking lot. Volunteers* will be available to help unload vehicles and to answer questions. You should stop and unload in the unloading zone designated for your residence hall, which will be color-coded on the Parking and Unloading Map. After you unload your vehicle, you will be directed to the Laurel Street or Henry Street Parking Decks for long-term parking (maximum 5 hours).
*Move-In Volunteers are volunteers, not paid employees, and are intended to be an extra set of hands, not professional movers. Use volunteers at your own risk.
If you bring a printer, make sure it is not a wireless printer, or that you can turn off the wireless capability. Wireless printers disrupt the wifi signal in the halls. The best choice is to go green and only print at the library when necessary.
The residence halls have internet-based TV programming, instead of traditional cable. As a resident, you'll be able to watch TV from your mobile devices or computer without any additional equipment. If you decide to bring a TV, you'll only be able to watch TV by using a Roku 2, Roku Premiere+, or Roku Ultra device.

We recommend that students contact their future roommate(s) to avoid possible duplication of items prior to arrival on campus. We also recommend that some items be purchased upon arrival.
All VCU residence halls are completely smoke-free. No smoking will be permitted within residence hall bedrooms, common areas, hallways, stairwells, outdoor walkways, balconies or courtyards, or within 25 feet of all residence hall entrances.
Separate landline telephone connections are no longer provided in students' rooms within VCU residence halls. Students should not bring their own landline phone. However, "courtesy" landline phones are available throughout each hall. If a student wishes to use a courtesy phone for a long-distance call, he or she will need to provide their own calling card.
