Dates & Parking

This is an important reminder for anyone planning to move-in to on-campus housing that all tasks on your myPurdue checklist MUST be completed before you will be permitted to move into residence halls, attend classes and/or participate in campus activities. Please visit our Important Reminder page for details.

Move-In Scheduling Website

Move-in time selection will be available beginning December 8, 2021 and accessible on the housing portal. Students failing to complete the move-in survey may experience delays with check-in. The spring 2022 contract begins Monday, January 10, 2022, with the first contract meal served beginning with breakfast. Please note your move-in pass will be available for printing beginning January 3, 2022.

Purdue ID Cards

Your Purdue ID card, sometimes referred to as your PUID card or photo ID, proclaims you as a member of the Purdue University community. The Purdue ID Card Office has teamed up with University Residences to provide you with a seamless check-in process. Purdue ID cards are REQUIRED for check-in. New students will receive their Purdue ID card at check-in IF their ID photo was uploaded and approved on Purdue's photo submission portal by NOON (EDT) on December 15, 2021. For more information, please visit the Purdue ID Card Office website. All returning students should have their photo IDs and plan to bring it with them at the time of check-in.

Returning students that have either lost their PUID or have forgotten it at home should plan to arrive at a time when they can visit an open main office for check-in.

Early Arrivals (prior to January 5, 2022) & Late Arrivals (after January 10, 2022)

All arrivals prior to January 5 and arrivals after January 10 should be communicated to your assigned hall's main office. 

If you are planning to arrive prior to January 5 and are not part of an approved early arrival program that covers your cost or waives your cost of early arrival, you may be subject to an early arrival daily rate of $32/day room only fee and you should contact your assigned hall's main office as soon as possible to confirm availability.

If you are a part of a pre-approved early arrival group, you will be able to select an earlier time slot. Contact your program coordinator for dates and other pertinent information, such as any costs that may be associated with arriving early. 

If you are a new residence hall student or a student returning to campus for the first time this academic year:

  • select your move in date/time
  • bring a valid, government-issued photo ID, such as a passport or driver's license, to verify identity and receive your Purdue ID card
  • regardless of what location you are assigned to, report to First Street Towers main office to receive your PUID and room packet for check in (bring a government issued ID to check-in for your PUID to be issued)
