Move-In 2021

Move-In 2021

We are excited to welcome you to campus housing at the University of Arizona! To help make your transition to college life as smooth as possible, please return to this page often and check your email regularly as COVID-19 policies and protocols will be finalized by University Leadership in the coming months.


*see here for approved early Move-In groups 


Please complete your Pre-Arrival Online Check-In in My UAHome. This process is where you'll choose your Move-In day and time, review and agree to our Policies & Procedures for Hall Living, and tell us some final information. Online Check-In must be completed before you arrive on campus. This helps to ensure things go quickly when you arrive at your dorm to check-in.

As we get closer to Move-In, you'll also receive helpful information via email about Move-In, including your unloading pass, dorm-specific parking maps, and much more. Emails will be sent to your CatMail email address, personal email, as well as any alternate contacts you listed in your housing application. 

Note: This year, sorority and fraternity recruitment events will take place AFTER classes begin. Students who are participating in recruitment will move in to their assigned dorm during their selected Move-In day and time. 


Information about Move-In – including unloading zone maps by dorm, a shopping checklist and more – can be found here on our website.

Students living in a suite, pod, or room with a private restroom are responsible for cleaning their own restroom and will be required to provide their own toilet paper and cleaning supplies. A list of suggested items to bring can be found here; Honors Village residents have a specific checklist for bathrooms and kitchens that can be found here.


The University cannot and will not consider any request for room/roommate change when that request is based on race, color, religion, gender, national origin, age, disability, veteran status, sexual orientation, perceived socio-economic status, or perceptions based on online profiles or information found on these profiles.


Your room assignment will be available in your housing application in My UAHome. Even if you have already viewed your room assignment, please re-check it before you arrive. Click on Undergraduate Housing Applications in the portal menuRoommate information is available on your Application Status page. You can send a message to your roommate(s) from that page. 

If no roommate information is displaying on your Application Status page in My UAHome:

  • you have not yet been assigned a roommate; or
  • the student originally assigned as your roommate has cancelled their housing*

*Your roommate could change between now and your arrival if your current roommate cancels their housing. In a situation like this, another student will be assigned to your room, and their information will then appear on your Application Status page. No additional notice will be sent to you.

Payment Plans & Rent

Spring semester rent charges have been posted to your University Bursar’s account. You still have time to enroll in an optional rent payment plan in My UAHome.

If your financial aid covers some or all housing costs, and your rent has not been posted at the time financial aid is applied to your account, you may receive a financial aid distribution check. You will still need to pay your rent and should use this check to pay it. Payment is due by the first day of classes, August 23, 2021. You can review your account and make payments in UAccess by logging into your Student Center.


More information about the Move-In process, including possible COVID-19 protocols, will be posted here and shared with incoming residents via email throughout the summer.

CATCARDS -- Updated!

If you are new to the University and don't already have your CatCard, be sure to complete the CatCard request process so that your card can be picked up at the front desk when you check into your dorm on move-in day. If you haven't already you can visit to get started. You must complete this process by Tuesday, Aug 10th at 11:59PM Arizona time to ensure your card is ready for you at check-in. If you do not complete this process by the due date you will have to go to the CatCard office to get your card. The CatCard office is located in the Student Union Memorial Center, Room 412 and will be open 7AM-5PM on Move-In days. 

When you arrive on campus to Move-In:

Please go directly to your dorm. Having your CatCard process completed by Aug 10th will help expedite the check-in process at your dorm and will ensure you have building access after you Move-In.
