Move-in Schedule

Fall 2020 Move-In will occur between August 11 and August 16. Some groups may have an earlier approved arrival. We encourage you to review the following information for your specific move-in process and email us at with any questions you may have prior to your arrival.

You will need to schedule a move-in appointment after July 13 to claim your specific time during the dates listed below. You must choose an appointment that is still available, as we cannot add additional appointments.

First-year: August 11 through August 14

First-year students will be able to schedule a move-in appointment between August 11th and 14th. Approximately 25% of each building will be able to move in each day and appointments will be on a first-come basis. After moving into your on-campus residence, you will be welcomed to campus with a variety of events and activities to make Clemson feel like home for our new Tigers! The day after your move-in date, you will participate in Orientation followed by Kick-Off Clemson, our welcome week program for incoming students. As part of Orientation and Kick-Off Clemson, you can participate in IMPACT a one-day leadership program as well as spirit events, involvement initiatives, and social events. To ensure social distancing, you will be placed into a small group with an upper-class student to guide you from move-in to the first day of classes!  More information on in-person Orientation for both parents and students as well as Kickoff Clemson will be available on the orientation website starting July 13.

Continuing: Saturday, August 15 and Sunday, August 16

Continuing students will be moving in between August 15th and 16th. You will be able to schedule your move-in appointment on one of those two days on a first-come basis once the Appointments section is available in the housing portal on July 13.

Bridge: Saturday, August 15

Bridge students will all move in on Saturday, August 15th. Since all Bridge Housing is in our apartment communities with exterior entrances, social distancing is possible and should be practiced during your move-in time. You will be able to schedule your move-in appointment for a specific time on a first-come basis, starting July 13.

Early Arrival

Residents who expect to be part of school-sponsored activities that require an earlier arrival time (e.g., athletes, Tiger Band, Orientation and Kick-Off Clemson facilitation, etc.) should not choose a move-in appointment until after receiving notification that you are eligible to select an early-arrival date.
