UR Move-In

We are excited to welcome you to campus! We have prepared the following resources to help you through the process of accessing campus, navigating through your check-in location and where to park once your Boilermaker has unloaded their belongings. 

Please continue to check this page to get the most updated move-in information as it is made available.

Move-In Scheduling Form
Please check your Purdue email regularly for information related to move-in. For new students arriving in the Summer & Fall, the move-in scheduling form details will be sent on or around June 21, 2022, to your Purdue email. You will select your move-in day and time through the form. If you have difficulty accessing the form, call the Central Assignments Office at (765) 494-1000
  • All students must adhere to their move-in time slot.  
  • Either print your move-in pass or have your move-in pass pulled up to show the office at the time of arrival. 
  • Students failing to complete the move-in form may experience delays with check-in.
When will I find out my room assignment?
Arriving in July to participate in Early Start/Emerging Leaders/Engineering Academic Bootcamp/Summer Start? 
  • You will be notified of your hall and room assignment on or around June 8, 2022. 
  • You may print your move-in pass beginning on July 1, 2022. 
  • Students moving from summer assignments to fall assignments, new this year, all efforts were made to minimize unnecessary moves from spring, summer and fall locations. If you are required to move from your summer assignment to your fall assignment, you should select a move-in time between August 4 and August 8. It may be operationally necessary in some cases to expedite or delay these moves. If this is the case the main office of your assigned hall will contact you and will manually assign your move-in time so it best meets your needs, as well as the building's needs. 

Arriving in August to move in for the Academic Year? 
  • You will be notified of your hall and room assignment on or around July 15, 2022.

Purdue ID Cards
Your Purdue ID card, sometimes referred to as your PUID card or photo ID, proclaims you as a member of the Purdue University community. The Purdue ID Card Office has teamed up with University Residences to provide you with a seamless check-in process. Purdue ID cards are REQUIRED for check-in. New students will receive their Purdue ID card at check-in IF their ID photo was uploaded and approved on Purdue's photo submission portal by NOON (EDT) on August 10, 2022. For more information, visit the Purdue ID Card Office website.  

All returning students should have their photo IDs and should plan to bring it with them at the time of check-in. Returning students that have either lost their PUID or have forgotten it at home should plan to visit the PUID Card Office to obtain a new ID card.
