Get ready to Move-In to your new home at Western Illinois University!

All residence halls open for move-in beginning Wednesday, August 19 - Thursday, August 20, 2020 for our freshman and new students. Returning students can move in beginning Friday, August 21 - Sunday, August 23. Students will receive an email from Housing on how to sign up for a move-in appointment. This information will go out after housing assignments are released (mid-late July).


The Move-In Process


You're just a few steps away from your new home at WIU...

A Few Important Notes:

  1. Students will be limited to the number of guests they may bring to help move in. Those who are pregnant or have underlying health conditions should refrain from assisting. Students are encouraged to bring their own cart or dollies, as carts will be limited.
  2. Social distancing measures will be in place, as only a limited number of students will be able to move in per hour. Masks will be required upon check-in and additional safety protocols will be in place.
  3. Additional protocols and information related to move-in and housing will be provided to students later this summer. Continue to check your email and this webpage for updates.

  4. Move-In Crew Schedule

    Unfortunately, due to social distancing guidelines and changes to our move-in process, we are not having a Move-In Crew this year. We hope to bring the crew back for Fall 2021.
