Students will select their move-in day and time through our Housing Portal, which is where they submitted the housing application. When that process is available, students will receive an email to their MGA email address with the instructions on how to sign up for a move-in time. Student who need to make arrangements for a later move-in time can do so by emailing  once the link to sign up for move-in times has been sent out, there are NO move-in times available prior to Saturday, August 6th. Late requests should be sent in no later than Friday, August 5th.

Students and their guests will have an hour to unload their vehicle(s) (maximum two per student) at their residence hall and then move it to a parking lot tot make room for the students moving in behind them. As a reminder, MGA does not allow U-hauls or trailers during move in to prevent congestion and accidents. Students are encouraged to pack mindfully and remember that they are responsible for carrying all items to their room as MGA staff is not able to assist.

Students moving into the residence halls need to have their student accounts settled prior to move-in. If you have questions, please reach out to the Bursar's Office or Financial Aid.
