OU Move-In

Move-In 2019

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 moving in will enter Lloyd Noble Center at the corner of Jenkins and GT Blankenship for a drive-through check in at their designated time.

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. Yes, that means you don’t even have to leave your car – just make sure you have your Sooner Card credential (either mobile or physical card) before Move-In!

Bed Lofting

Students moving into Walker, Adams or Couch Center can choose to have their beds lofted, bunked or remain two separate twin beds. If you would like for the beds to remain separate, no action is needed. Please discuss these options with your roommate before completing this form. If roommates submit conflicting requests, the beds will remain separate twin beds. The deadline to guarantee bed setup requests prior to Move-In is 5 p.m. on July 17.
