Upperclassmen residents (12-month) can start moving in on August 1 at 10 a.m. However, to avoid large lines and traffic, avoid moving in during Freshmen Move-in on August 19.
What happens at Check-in
For Tuesday, August 1 - Thursday, August 3, Sunday, August 14, and Thursday, August 17 - Monday, August 21 only, residents may take advantage of the blocked-off unloading areas on Grace Street.
On August 1 and August 19, you may utilize the Broad Street Parking Deck for long-term parking (5 hours max) even if you don't have a Broad Street parking pass. Please do not park on Grace Street for longer than 30 minutes on these days.
If you arrive on a day not mentioned above, please pay attention to the City of Richmond parking signage and pay the appropriate meters to avoid ticketing/towing.

*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.
Dishwasher, stove, oven, full refrigerator, washer/dryer are provided in each unit.
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.
