We assign a time frame for you to move in based on your class year. Information about your move-in time will be emailed to your Cortland account and published on the housing self-service window.
Halls open from 1 to 4 p.m. New students attending orientation may move in.
Halls open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Both new and returning students may move in.
Halls open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Both new and returning students may move in.
Purchase what you need for your room. Coordinate with your roommate to decide who is bringing what shared items like the TV, refrigerator and rug. Refer to our “What to Bring and What Not to Bring” document and print off our suggested shopping list (PDF) to bring with you.
Label all items you will move into your room with your name, residence hall and room number. To make this process easier we have created labels that you can download and print (PDF) onto your own label sheets (or just print them on regular paper and tape them on). You can use 2"x4" labels (Avery 5163). If you would like to receive assistance moving in your belongings, make sure your items are labeled (including your fan, refrigerator and any other loose items you have in addition to boxes and bags).
When you arrive on campus SUNY Cortland staff will be available to make the move-in process one of the easiest you will ever experience. Here is what you can expect:
Report directly to your assigned residence hall. Visit the staff office to officially check in.
Students assigned to West Campus Apartments should go directly to the West Campus Recreation Center to check in.
