(aka Move-in Day)

Get all your details about Move-In Day on the Housing website. Be sure to follow the instructions emailed from Housing to your uoregon email address, because your move-in time is assigned specifically for you. So how exactly does the UO move you and a few thousand of your peers into your residence halls in a single day? Well, we hate to brag, but we're kinda good at it.

Already on campus and hoping to help with Unpack the Quack? All students, faculty, and staff are welcome to participate and you can sign up here.

Specific times and locations sent to students’ uoregon email.
