Move-In Process

We welcome you and your family to Pacer Nation!

You’ll gain friends, mentorships, and lifelong memories over the course of your time on campus. Let’s get started together.

Due to COVID-19, the move-in process will incorporate staggered dates. Information is being sent to all students to ensure the health and safety of everyone. Information is being sent via email and included in our COVID-19 Information Center. 

We look forward to being a part of your college journey! Go Pacers.
