Around 6,250 students will travel to Illinois State University August 5-18 for the fall 2019 move-in. Students will have assigned move-in dates and times depending on their housing assignment.
Move-in for residents of Fell Avenue and School Street apartments starts Monday, August 5. Returning students living in Hewett, Manchester, and Cardinal Court may move in Monday and Tuesday, August 12-13, or after Friday, August 16.
Approximately 60 percent of residence hall residents—students in Hewett, Manchester, Watterson, Wright, Wilkins, and Haynie—will move in Wednesday and Thursday, August 14-15. The remainder of returning students will schedule move-in appointments between Friday and Sunday, August 16-18.
University Housing has a Move-In Guide on the Illinois State App that provides information on getting to campus and what to expect after a student moves into 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 12-16. 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 (only move-in traffic allowed); Fell Avenue will be closed between College Avenue and North Street; and Fell Avenue will be closed for all northbound traffic.
More than 300 students and staff will serve as move-in volunteers. The volunteer ranks will include Association of Residence Halls members, student athletes, faculty, and staff.
