Planning Your Move
It's finally here. Time to move to your new, on-campus home. To get you started, we've provided the information below to help you with your big move. Also, be sure to read our helpful Tips for Parents to have a Successful Move-In Day with everything from what to wear to saying "See you later!"
- Residents will select their move-in appointment (once room assignments are confirmed) starting Saturday, June 1 via the OSU Housing Portal.
Prepare over the Summer
- Review policies and procedures. Read the Single Student Housing Community Rules and Standards Handbook (pdf). Many of the policies are featured on the Policies tab.
- The OSU Residence Halls Association offers several student services that can be purchased by residents through Dormroom.com/OKU to make their time on campus more enjoyable.
- Appliance rentals. To rent a MicroFridge, visit University and Student Services before move-in.
- Get renters insurance coverage. Your residence hall space and belongings may be covered under your parent’s homeowners insurance. If not, we encourage you to purchase a plan through your insurance agent or through University Student Services.
- Room furnishings. Consider making purchases for care packages, sheets/bedding and room furnishings via Dormroom.com/OKU
- Room amenities. Find your room at Hall Finder. Get bed sizes, room measurements and more.
- Coordinate with roommates. Coordinate room furnishings and rentals with roommates to prevent doubling up on items.
- Mail service. Send mail/packages to the campus address after your move-in day to avoid items being returned to sender.
- Parking permit. Go online to Parking and Transportation Services to purchase your vehicle permit. You can print a temporary permit and place it on your dash.
