Move In Weather Updates
8/15 9:15 p.m. update: Move-in day will go as scheduled on Wed., August 17, 2016. We look forward to welcoming Tigers who can safely travel to campus. Though most routes are open, please review your route at 511la.org to ensure an easy passage. Also consider shopping locally before traveling to campus, as stores’ inventories may be limited because of the area flooding and reduced deliveries into Baton Rouge.
Students are not required to check in on move-in day (Wednesday). You can check in at your community’s front desk any time of day after 8 a.m. until 9 p.m. Make sure to check in before the end of the first day of classes. If you can’t make it by the end of the first day of classes, contact us at email@example.com.
Returning residents who volunteered to assist with move-in day: If you can safely make your way into campus to move in Tuesday, you can do so between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. at your community’s front desk. Please note there is no penalty in canceling your participation, as your safety is our primary concern. If you can no longer assist, please email bmattera@Lsu.edu.

We invite current students, faculty and staff to be a part of a rich LSU celebration and tradition by volunteering a few hours of time on Move-In Day! You can make a difference on Wednesday, August 17, for our on-campus residents by helping everyone get moved into their new homes. We will supply you with a t-shirt to identify you as part of the LSU community to residents and family members.
If you are a returning student who is planning to live on campus in the fall and you volunteer on Move-in Day, you will be able to move into your room assignment on Tuesday, August 16*, with no additional charge for the extra day! (*WCA special condition apartments are excluded from this.)
If you would like additional information or are interested in signing up a large group of volunteers, please contact Bill Mattera.
Deadline to sign up is July 25, 2016.
