Welcome Weekend Move-In
Arriving to UND
- Please be sure to sign up for a time that you will arrive to campus to move-in.
- You may bring up to two helpers. There should be no more than three people in your group, including yourself.
- In private rooms that are usually doubles, there will be two sets of furniture. All furniture must stay in the room.
Review the Move-In Day Stop Drop and Go Map for directions. When you arrive at the UND campus, go directly to the key distribution tents located at the Wellness Center Parking Lot. This is where you will receive your key and further instructions on how to proceed to your hall and the Stop Drop & Go Zones.
Follow these parking and unloading guidelines to keep cars moving as fast as possible through congested parking lots:
- Pull your vehicle up to your hall’s Stop Drop & Go zone.
- Volunteers will assist you to quickly and safely unload your things onto the sidewalk. You, a friend, or a family member should stay with your belongings.
- Park your car at the nearest parking lot and return to your hall to help bring this up to your room.
A Stop, Drop & Go Parking Map will be available for you to bring on move-in day! We are still working on finalizing our plans and will provide the map when it is completed.
Complete Room Inventory and Condition By Sept 1
We do our best to maintain our facilities, but we know they're not perfect. Please take some time to review and report the Room Inventory and Condition so that way we know if there are any issues in your room. Please be sure you complete this by September 1. Ask your RA if you have questions.
- Claim your Roompact account through the email you received.
- Complete your Room Inventory and Condition at Roompact.
Unpack and Get Settled
Now is the time you've been waiting for: decorating and unpacking! Be sure you have reviewed the packing guidelines on what you should and should not bring to campus. If you're looking for help with your loft, checkout Bed Loft and Adjustable frame.
Students and those assisting them with move-in are welcome to stop by the dining centers during welcome weekend on the day they check-in! Please note that dining capacity is limited and only one person is allowed per table. Take-out is the primary option for guests. To help accommodate the additional dining demand and physical distance requirements, students and helpers that move-in on Saturday, are encouraged to seek alternative Dining options on Sunday. The Greater Grand Forks Convention & Visitors Bureau has a comprehensive list of simply grand dining options in the area.
