Moving In


Welcome to Your Nest

If you will be moving to LHU for the first time, welcome! If you will be returning to campus, welcome back! Moving in to your "home away from home" will be an exciting, hectic day. Below you will find move-in instructions for both new and returning students. Please read this page carefully to ensure a smooth move-in experience. Continue to check your LHU email regularly to stay up to date on important information and additional details. 

Fall 2021 Move-In Days

Move-In Dates

The dates for move-in are scheduled as follows:

  • Incoming students new to LHU will move in August 19-20, 2021. This includes transfer students and second-year students who have yet to live on campus or take in-person classes.
  • Students returning to LHU will move in August 21-22, 2021. 

Please note, each student will be assigned a specific move-in day and arrival time. An email containing your move-in appointment information was sent to your LHU email address on Monday, July 26, 2021. Please contact Student and Residence Life if you did not receive an email. It's very important for you to arrive as scheduled to ensure you do not have long to wait during check-in and to limit traffic congestion.  

Move-In Guide

The Move-In Guide for Fall 2021 for both new and returning students is now available. Please read through it carefully so you are prepared for the fall semester's Move-In Days!

Vehicle Restrictions

 Only one vehicle per student is allowed in our staging areas at a time. So, if you are bringing multiple cars, park one in a lot and drive the other one to the appropriate staging area or hall. Once you have finished unloading one vehicle, you can go and do it all again. Also, no trailers, oversized vehicles, or moving vans are allowed in the staging areas. Finally, drivers must always stay with the vehicle when you are unloading it. Once your vehicle is unloaded, please immediately move it to a parking lot. A shuttle bus will be running all day to bring you from the parking areas back up to the Residence Halls.
