Congratulations on attending Sac State and being a part of our residential community. We're excited to have you join us in the residence halls for the 2015-2016 academic year! The following information and resources will be helpful as you pack and prepare to move into your residence hall.

Move-In Weekend

Residence halls open on Friday, August 28, 2015. Check-In is from 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

If you are living in the residence halls you need to check in at the Alumni Center during your 1-hour time slot.  When you arrive to campus you will not go to your assigned hall, but rather go directly to the Alumni Center.  Your 1-hour time slot will be emailed to you the week of August 3rd.  If you need to change your time slot, please follow the steps within the email to request a change.
