Residence hall move-in for the Spring semester is simple and easy...
- If you are a new student, you will be asked to check-in at a designated check-in station with residence hall staff.
- If you are returning as a student to your same room assignment that you had the previous semester, simply log-in to STARS using any campus computer, verify information and select "Residence Hall Check-in" from the drop down to electronically check yourself back in to the halls for the Spring semester.
** All meal plans will not be active until a student checks-in to his/her residence hall room. Meal plans activate 15-minutes after check-in.
All Halls OPEN
10:00 am on Sunday, January 12, 2014
All residence halls will open for check-in beginning at 10:00 am on Sunday, January 13, 2013. You can check into your hall between 8:00 am and 10:00 pm anytime/day after the initial "open" date listed above. Peak move-in times tend to be from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm.
What is the Check-In Process Like?
As you arrive in Macomb and make your way to your residence hall, we ask that you unload your vehicle near the hall, and (while someone stays with the belongings) move the car to a regular parking lot. After you unload do not leave your vehicle parked near the hall. This will ensure that others are able to do the same.
When you arrive to your residence hall you will be greeted by staff and returning students who will direct you through the check-in process. Our process is an electronic information process, so you will need to know your University ECOM username and password and verify some contact information with us. Then you will be directed to pick-up your room and access keys and asked to inspect your room for any damages we may have missed. Along the way, you will be assigned a move-in crew member (based on availability, expect a wait during peak times) who will help you move in your belongings.

MicroFridge: For $65/semester rent (will be auto split if two roommates order a MicroFridge), you can have the convenience of a microwave/refrigerator combination unit in your room when you arrive to campus. If you are interested, you can add this option on STARS (after you receive your assignment) by visiting UHDS Housing Information Menu > Residence Hall Contract Changes.
Loft & Futons: If you live in Tanner, you have the option of bringing a loft to campus. If you want to rent a loft or purchase a futon, we partner with Bedloft.com. Simply visit www.bedloft.com, select Western Illinois University from the drop down. Furnishing will be delivered to your room and ready to assemble when you arrive to campus.
Bed Linens: Save yourself a trip to the store and order linens that are guaranteed to fit our beds and last until graduation. We partner with Residence Hall Linens to provide fun, affordable and attractive sheets, towels, pillows and more. Proceeds from this program go to Inter-hall Council, our governing student group, and are used for programming in the residence halls. Visit www.rhl.org/wiu for more information and to order your linens.
