Move-in

Whether you are joining us for the first time or you are returning to the residence halls, we ask that you become familiar with the process for move-in, as it may look different year to year.

Fall 2022 move-in

We are excited to collaborate with the Digital Wolf Pack Initiative, NevadaFIT and Wolf Card Office to host the first ever centralized check-in process at the Mathewson-IGT Knowledge Center during NevadaFIT Opening Weekend (August 18-20). This process for is for incoming First-Year Students (who all attend NevadaFIT) and Transfer students choosing to participate in TransferFIT (Parents, family members and supporters can attend a Parent/Family Reception on the 4th floor of the Knowledge Center, or can wait in the lobby).  All vehicles should park in the West Stadium Garage while checking in at the Knowledge Center.  Sophomore and Above Students will move-in on August 26.  See below for more information.

Incoming first-year NevadaFIT students and TransferFIT students

This move-in experience is for students who are new to the University, new to living on campus and/or any student participating in NevadaFIT or TransferFIT (residents living in the Transfer LLC or living elsewhere on campus and opting into TransferFIT).

In order to check-in for move-in, you will need to have an active WolfCard (student ID). Please submit your photo to the WolfCard Office prior to your Orientation (or no later than August 1) so you can pick up your ID at residence hall and NevadaFit check-in.

Instructions to upload a photo for your WolfCard

Please log in to your Housing Portal and verify your housing assignment. You will need your building and room number. Based on your housing assignment, please see the table below for your check-in date and time at the Mathewson-IGT Knowledge Center. You will drive your vehicle to the West Stadium Parking Garage, park, and then navigate to the Knowledge Center.  Arriving at this time is critical to a successful, fast, and easy-as-possible move-in experience. The following considerations are taken into account when determining move-in date and time:

  • Number of students on a floor or wing; and in a building
  • Proximity of being able to unload vehicles as close to the building as possible
  • Traffic flow around campus, especially with off-campus properties having students move in around the same time
  • Access to elevators, exterior and interior stairwells
  • Availability of laundry carts to help you move-in
  • Coordinating iPad distribution for new students and capacity in the Knowledge Center (which centralized check-in will be held)

Failing to check-in during the window below will likely cause delays for you to check-in and/or we may ask you to return for another check-in time. Also, if you arrive on campus to check-in after 4:30pm, or on Sunday, you will need to check in directly at your residence hall.

Sophomore and above students not participating in TransferFIT

August 26, 9 a.m.-3 p.m.

This move-in experience is for students who identify as sophomore and above, or upper division students, who are not participating in NevadaFIT or TransferFIT. More than likely, these students lived on campus last year and are returning to live on campus again, or they are new to campus and not participating in either NevadaFIT or TransferFIT.

If you identify in this category as a returning student, please check-in at your residence hall on Friday, August 26, 9-3 p.m. While you are welcome to check-in after this time, please know there will be several activities occurring around campus in which you can participate, connect with friends and meet others and get this academic year off to a great start. Canada Hall is our only residence hall specifically for sophomore and above/upper division students, so move in for this building is Friday, August 26, 9-3 p.m.

You will not be turned away if you check-in prior to August 26, but please note your meal plan (if applicable) will not be active until Friday, August 26.

Check-in Times (at the Mathewson-IGT Knowledge Center)

After which you will relocate your vehicle to your residence hall to move-in.

Note: Families with multiple vehicles will only be able to unload one vehicle at a time; the second vehicle must remain in the West Stadium Garage until the first vehicle has been removed from the unloading zone. Students with trailers, U-Haul trucks and RVs will need to move in after 4pm (due to space limitations at each hall).

Important details about move-in

  • Failure to arrive during your allotted time will likely cause delays when you arrive on campus to check-in.
  • Hand trucks and carts will be available, however if you don't feel comfortable using community equipment,  you may bring your own. These items are also in short supply, so bringing your own may help expedite your move-in.
  • Family and friends are welcome to help you move-in, but please be aware that more people may cause slower access to stairwells and elevators. Family and friends do not need to provide proof of COVID vaccine or negative test results, unless they are staying overnight.
  • We are trying to coordinate volunteers who will provide assistance during move-in dates/times, but please don't count on this support. 
  • Move-in tends to occur during a hot time of year. We recommend you and your helpers plan accordingly (weather and moving-appropriate clothing, bringing water, etc.).
  • It is critical all incoming students have checked in by 5 p.m. on Saturday, August 20, as NevadaFIT and the Opening Ceremony for all students and their support systems starts that evening.
  • At present, residents will need to demonstrate proof of COVID-negative test received within 72 hours prior to arrival. More details can be found below under "COVID and vaccination requirements."
  • Residence hall check-in at the Knowledge Center ends at 4pm. If you arrive after this time (until 5pm), please go to the Knowledge Center to get your ID, check-in for NevadaFIT, and get your iPad; after which proceed to your residence where you will check-in to housing. If you arrive after 5pm, check in at your residence hall front desk, move-in and head to the Knowledge Center the next day to get your Wolf Card and iPad, and check-in for NevadaFIT - you will be issued have a temporary key access card until your Wolf Card is activated with your building (and room, if applicable) access.
