Housing and Residential Life is in the process of developing move-in plans designed to keep you safe during move-in and to limit campus congestion. Students will move in by assigned time slots to help manage the number of students and guests in each building. Our goal is to keep numbers around 850 students each day, spread throughout our 31 halls, and have multiple move-in days. These plans encourage social distancing and support the guidelines for gatherings to ensure your health and safety. Once dates are finalized, we will contact all residents, so please check your okstate email account. We will also provide updates on this page. Please bookmark this page and check back for updates. Stay safe and be well!
