Move-In

Community Members,
 
As the university community prepares to begin a new academic year, it is time for student “move-in “days Friday, August 27th -Sunday, August 29th .

Peak congestion for first-year student move-in is expected Friday August 27 between 6 a.m. and 3 p.m. UNH Parking Services, under the direction of UNH Police, will close selected parking lots on the evening of Thursday, August 26th.

You will find additional parking and transportation information below concerning Gables & Woodside’s apartments move-in on Saturday August 28th and returning students move-in on Sunday August 29th.  Please go to  https://www.unh.edu/housing/ for move-in information.
 
Over the years, we have developed proven strategies for managing the experience for students and their families. The process works well thanks to the outstanding cooperation from faculty and staff whose work is less directly related to move-in and accommodate this annual request for patience and flexibility. Please consider, with the approval of your supervisor, altering your arrival and departure times or telecommuting.
 
Most of the campus core parking lots will be “CLOSED” for staging to support move-in operations. If you commute to campus on any of these days, please be aware of conditions that may impact travel and parking (and that could result in cars being towed if they are left in lots that are designated as “closed”). Please anticipate and be prepared for last-minute changes and additional directions from the UNH Police who will be supervising parking and traffic during move-in.
 
I apologize for any inconvenience that the move-in process might cause you. I greatly appreciate your continued efforts and support to welcome our students and their families to campus in true Wildcat fashion.
 
Sincerely,

 

Christopher D. Clement, Sr
Chief Operating Officer/Vice President Administration
