Returning & Transfer Student Move-In Schedule

Move-In Update August 5, 2020

Good Morning, Loyola Students and Families: 

First and foremost, everyone at Loyola University Maryland hopes that you and your family are safe and healthy. We will be in touch later this week or early next week with details about the move-in process, including information about move-in dates. 

As many of you have reached out with some questions, we wanted to share an overview of the process. Students will use the RoomRez portal to select a check-in date and time based on their move-in days and availability. Students should select a date and time that works with their travel plans and contact studentlife@loyola.edu if there is a conflict. Our goal is to accommodate everyone’s move-in requests and we have designed a socially distant move-in process with a variety of timeslots available to meet everyone’s needs. At this time, we cannot pre-register students for specific arrival requests.

We appreciate everyone’s flexibility and patience as we navigate this unprecedented situation and ask that all students living in Loyola-provided housing continue to check their Loyola email for updated instructions This communication can only be sent directly to student email accounts. 

Thank you,  
Student Life


Returning Students

Please note, this information is from August 2019. Fall 2020 information will be available shortly.

Note that this is a generic schedule for all returning students. If you have made previous arrangements to arrive early, the attached schedule does not apply to you.

To alleviate stress during move-in at our largest buildings (Campion Tower and Newman Tower), students and families will be permitted to unload items from their car in the designated areas, but must move their cars immediately afterward. Cars will not be permitted to be unattended at any point during the move-in process. Student life staff will be available to assist in this process and move-in carts will be available.

Transfer Students

Please note, this information is from August 2019. Fall 2020 information will be available shortly.

Transfer students will get separate information about move-in times and locations from student engagement. This information will be emailed to the student's Loyola email account. Visit the Transfer Students page for more information on the transfer student housing process, including applying for housing.
