Residence halls opening - fall 2017


Students New to UW-Stevens Point
Students who have never attended UW-Stevens Point check in on Thursday, August 31, 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.

Students Returning to UW-Stevens Point
If you have previously attended UW-Stevens Point, checkin is on Sunday, September 3, 9 a.m.-4 p.m.

You may arrive AFTER your scheduled date, but not before. We will have move-in assistance available on Thursday and Sunday, August 31 and September 3.

Consider arriving later in the day - you'll avoid waits and still have plenty of time to get settled in.


Refer to the move-in parking map for information on unloading zones during scheduled move-in days.

Once your items have been unloaded, move your vehicle to a designated parking lot. Student parking lots are "open" during the weekend before classes. Permits are required during the school year. More parking information is available here​.
As you pull up to the curb, one of our staff will mark your windshield with a wipe-off pen so we can contact you if we need your vehicle moved.
Closed drives for move-in day
The circle drives in South DeBot (Baldwin, Hansen, Neale, Steiner), North DeBot (Burroughs, Knutzen, Thomson, Watson) and near the Health Enhancement Center (Neale and Hansen) will be closed during move-in. These drives are reserved for emergency vehicles only.


A gold emergency card will be mailed to your home address in mid-August. Please complete the card and bring it with you on check-in day. You won't be able to get your keys without a completed card, so take a few moments and complete it at home. Tip: put it in a backpack, purse or some other easy-to-reach place. Don't pack it in one of your boxes!


Welcome Week offers activities, ways to connect and Convocation. There are lots of activities available including Labor of Love. You're sure to find something that is appealing to you.
