Returning ISU students who will be living in Hewett and Manchester or Cardinal Court may move in Monday and Tuesday, August 13-14, or after Friday, August 17. Approximately 60 percent of residence hall residents—students in Hewett, Manchester, Watterson, Wright, Wilkins and Haynie—will move in Wednesday and Thursday, August 15-16. Students brand new to Illinois State and living in Cardinal Court will also move in Wednesday and Thursday, August 15-16. The remainder of returning students will schedule move-in appointments between Friday and Sunday, August 17-19.

University Housing has a 2018 Move-In Guide on the Illinois State App that provides information on getting to campus and what to expect after a student moves in to University housing. Members of the community can also download the app to keep up-to-date with information regarding move-in, such as road closures.

Temporary traffic patterns and some street closures will be in effect August 13-17. North Street will be one-way east from School Street to Fell Avenue; Fell Avenue will be one-way south from Mulberry Street to College Avenue and North Street to Beaufort Street (only move-in traffic allowed); Fell Avenue will be closed between College Avenue and North Street; Fell Avenue will be closed for all northbound traffic. As always, additional and abnormal traffic is expected August 15-16.

More than 300 students and staff will serve as move-in volunteers. The volunteer ranks will include Association of Residence Halls members, student athletes, and athletic staff.
