Before You Get Here

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 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 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 Get Here

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:

  1. A University Police officer will direct you where to go to move in.
  2. Once parked, one person must stay with the vehicle.
  3. Complete the info card and place on the dashboard of your vehicle.
  4. Check in and pick up your room key.
  5. Unload vehicle immediately as instructed by staff.
  6. As soon as your vehicle is empty, move it to the Park Center parking lot. Buses will be available to shuttle you back to the residence halls.
