Aug. 10 - To undergraduate students: Move-in registration is now open

Move-in registration is now open for both new and returning students. Students should register for a date and time in My Housing as soon as possible.

Move-ins for the fall 2021 semester will be scheduled in shifts over multiple days:

  • First-year and transfer students will move in Tuesday, Aug. 31 and Wednesday, Sept. 1. Shifts will run from 8-10:30 a.m., 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 1-3:30 p.m. both days.
  • Returning students will move in Sunday, Sept. 5 and Monday, Sept. 6. Shifts will run from 8-10 a.m., 10 a.m. to noon, noon to 2 p.m. and 2-4 p.m. both days.
  • Student-athletes and student leaders who are arriving on campus early will receive information about their move-in procedures directly from their coach or program coordinator.

Move-In Procedures

  • Two family members from the same household will be allowed to accompany each student during the move-in process.
  • On your move-in date, you should arrive on campus within your designated time slot and go directly to your assigned residence hall.
  • After you are directed to a parking area, you will proceed to Rodgers Recreation Center to complete the onboarding process.
  • Once you have completed the onboarding process, you may return to your residence hall and move your belongings into your room.
  • Upon moving into their space, all students will be required to log in to My Housing and complete their initial move-in room condition report.

A negative COVID-19 test is not required for family members who are assisting with move-in. Per current University policy, individuals who are not vaccinated will be asked to wear a mask indoors.

Onboarding Process

All students will complete an onboarding process that involves the Dean of Students Office, Health Services, Information Technology and Residence Life. Students should arrive with all requirements completed. Students with incomplete requirements may be turned away until records are complete.

  • Verification of immunization records (for new students). Returning students will also be notified of any holds on their account.
  • Verification of a negative COVID-19 test administered within the three days prior to arrival or documentation of a positive COVID-19 test within the past 90 days. For more information, see Salve Regina’s Aug. 5 message on pre-arrival testing.
  • Verification of your vaccination status. You must have either your vaccine record uploaded or an exemption on file. For more information, see Salve Regina’s July 30 message on vaccine requirements.
  • New students will have their ID photo taken and Salve Regina ID activated for access to campus buildings. Returning students will have their IDs reactivated.

What to Bring (And What Not to Bring)

All residence hall rooms are furnished with the following items (one per student): bed, closet or wardrobe, bureau, desk and chair. Rooms are also equipped with an internet jack and have access to wireless internet.

The list of what to bring and what not to bring has been updated, and students should also remember to bring a supply of masks and a “go-bag” with clothing, toiletries and learning materials should they need to quickly quarantine or isolate outside of their residence hall room. All belongings should fit in one vehicle.

Emergency Contact Information

All students should submit emergency contact and missing persons information by Tuesday, Aug. 31. The information you provide will allow the University to contact the individual(s) you designate to inform them if you experience a major health or safety issue, or if you are determined to be missing as required by the Higher Education Opportunity Act.

You should also ensure that your user profile in My Salve is up to date and includes your cell phone number.
