Spring 2021 Move-In

Oklahoma City University Housing and Residence Life looks forward to welcoming our new and returning residents for the Spring 2021 semester!

Time Slots

  • To help ensure everyone's safety during the move-in process, each student is responsible for signing up for a time slot.
  • You must arrive and check into your room assignment on your assigned day and during your self-assigned time slot.
  • You will need to remain flexible in your plans as we will be unable to accommodate requests for changes to move-in dates and times.

On-campus residents both new and returning will choose a time-slot for their move-in, starting on Friday, January 15th, through Sunday, January 17th, between the hours of 9:00AM-4:30PM. If you are planning to return after January 17th, please let your Residence Hall Director know and we will send you the appropriate sign up link for Monday the 18th.

Required COVID Testing

All students before being allowed to move in must have taken a COVID test with the Campus Health Clinic and received a negative test result. Any student who shows up to move-in and has not received a negative test result from the Campus Health Clinic will be turned away and sent to the Campus Health Clinic.
