Fall Move-In

Residence Hall Fall 2024 Move-In

Welcome Home!

The staff of K-State Housing and Dining Services is pleased to welcome you to your campus community and your new home away from home!

A note for parents, guardians and families: you may or may not receive all the same communication your student receives. Please encourage your student to begin regularly checking their K-State email address. Please also plan to join us for a webinar to discuss Move-In in July.

Residence halls open Wednesday, Aug. 14, 2024 for the academic year. Students planning to arrive early may move in as early as Sunday, Aug. 11, 2024 for an additional fee of $55.00/day for each day prior to the official opening day. No Move-In appointments will be available for Monday, Aug. 12.

Greek Life and Band Students: Move-In for these programs begins Saturday, Aug. 10, 2024. Registration with the Greek Life and/or Band Programs is required prior to signing up for an arrival appointment.

Fall 2024 Move-In Calendar


Housing and Dining Services will send notification to all residents via their K-State email when move-in appointments are available. Residents can anticipate receiving this email in early July. All residents are required to complete the required information and create a check-in appointment.

Early arrival groups (e.g. Marching Band, sorority recruitment) are working directly with Housing and Dining Services to have pre-scheduled move-in appointments. All residents that are a part of these groups must also complete the initial steps of the check-in form.

Residence Hall Handbook and Calendar

The residence hall handbook includes important policies and procedures. Residents are responsible for adhering to the terms of the handbook. Each resident should review the Residence Hall Handbook in its entirety. The updated calendar with important dates is included in the handbook as well. The calendar is updated yearly in late June or early July. It has not yet been updated for the 2024-2025 academic year.
