Move-In Days


Move-In Days for Fall 2020

Due to the complex nature of moving 4000 students onto campus, all students must come on their assigned day and time.  In mid-July, move in day information will be sent out with your assigned day and time.

  • Freshman Students
  • Returning Upperclassmen Students
  • Move-In Day Volunteers

New Student Resources

We are excited to welcome our newest students to campus! To help with the transition to campus life, we have compiled some special resources for incoming freshmen and their parents. You can find a full list of helpful guides on our Expectations, Policies, and Agreements page!  

My ResLife Notebook - This handy guide should answer many of your burning questions (such as, "What's included in my room?") and contains loads of useful information all in one document. 

Video Resources - Are you curious about safety in the residence halls? Wondering how your meal plan works? We've put together some informative videos to make sure you feel ready to set out on your Belmont journey! 


What to Bring

Not sure where to begin? We have compiled a list of common items you might need in your residence hall room (including what NOT to bring!). You can view a complete listing of Residence Life policies, please refer to the Handbook for Residential Living. You may also use this handy printable packing list to make sure you have everything you may need!
