Moving In and Out

University of Oregon families and Unpack the Quack team move students into the residence halls

Unpack the Quack Fall 2022

The first day of fall term classes is Tuesday, September 27.

The primary residence hall move-in days for fall 2022 are Thursday, September 22 and Friday, September 23. Students required to arrive on campus before their assigned move-in day due to programming, such as participating in an ARC, will be able to request an early move-in for an additional early arrival rate. Visit the blog post for dates and more information on how to prepare for move-in.

You will be assigned a move-in date and time by early September. Please do not book travel before your receive your assigned move-in date and time. We will communicate out details regarding check-in location, parking, and other important information in mid-September. 

Each room will come furnished with a bed, wardrobe (or closet), dresser, desk, chair, and waste and recycling bins. Bring the essentials and then determine what else you might once you have moved into your specific room. Many items can be purchased in Eugene after you arrive. Be sure to connect with your roommate and coordinate if you plan to bring any appliances or other large items. Be sure to know what you can (and cannot) have in your room.

For those arriving before September 22, check-in will take place at the housing service center for your residence hall. Your service center information is on the My Assignment tab in My Housing. For early arrivals, there are no designated unloading zones and there are university parking areas and city parking areas throughout campus. At your housing service center, you will be greeted by University Housing staff to provide you with your key or fob to your residence hall room. You will need your UO ID or government–issued ID.  

Unpack the Quack: Thursday, September 22 and Friday, September 23

Move-In Time 

Your move-in date and time will be available via My Housing by early September. 

Driving to Campus 

You need to print out your unloading permit to be able to drive on to campus. This gives you access to your unloading zone on campus at your move-in time. The roads on campus will be closed to everyone except those with an Unpack the Quack unloading permit.  

You will not be able drive onto campus before your move-in time. You will be directed to an early arrival parking lot if you arrive prior to your move-in time. 

Your Unloading Zone 

Each residence hall has an unloading zone. This map and the route will be available to you via My Housing in the mid-September. 

Unloading Your Vehicle 

Unpack the Quack volunteers and support staff will assist to unload your vehicle (only one allowed) in your unloading zone. If needed, your belongings will go to a nearby corral where they are held until you receive your key. You will not be able to park your vehicle, so the driver must stay in your vehicle. Students who arrive without any one else will have volunteers unload their vehicle and bring belongings to the corral. 


After your vehicle is unloaded, you or your driver will be directed to park at Autzen Stadium. Shuttle vehicles are available to bring you back to campus and will be available to take you back to your vehicle until 6:00p.m. 

Check In  

You will be greeted by University Housing staff to provide you with your key or fob to your residence hall room. Once you check-in, you can move-in to your hall! Your belongings will be with you or located in the corral where you can pick them up and volunteers will help you take them into your residence hall. 

If you have not submitted your immunization information, your key or fob will not be available, and you will be directed to go through University Health Services to process your immunization documentation. 

Immunization Requirement 

Please ensure that you have submitted your COVID-19 immunization documents to your myUO Health portal by Friday, November 11, at 5:00 p.m. PST to meet the extended deadline of November 14.
