OU Move-In

Move-In 2018

We have partnered with University and Student Services to provide a full-service Move-In experience for all students living with us in the residence halls this fall. Students who move into the residence halls on their scheduled day will arrive at Lloyd Noble Center for a drive-through check in at their designated time. Yes, that means you don’t even have to leave your car – just make sure you have your Sooner Card (Student ID) before Move-In!

View the LNC Move-In Entrance

Students and families then will be directed through controlled traffic to the residence halls on campus. Once at the residence halls, University and Student Services will unload your vehicle and move all of your items into your room for you. After they have unloaded your vehicle(s), you will be directed to parking, and we will have dedicated shuttles to get you back to your residence hall where you will get your key and start unpacking.
