We are so excited to welcome you to our Oxy community! We wanted to share some updates and reminders with you as you finalize your plans to come to campus on Monday, August 23.

1. First Year and Transfer Move-In is scheduled for Monday, August 23 from 8 a.m. - 2 p.m. All information regarding move in is located in our Move-In Guide; please ensure that you read the guide fully. We are expecting over 500 students plus family members on campus during this time. In an effort to ensure a smooth and safe move-in experience while we continue to monitor COVID-19, we are asking students and families to arrive to campus at a specific time slot based upon a student’s last name:

  • Last name begins with A-B:     8 a.m.
  • Last name begins with C-F:     9 a.m.
  • Last name begins with G-L:     10 a.m.
  • Last name begins with M-R:     11 a.m.
  • Last name begins with S-Z:     12 noon

These time slots will allow a lower density of students and families moving in, resulting in fewer lines and easier access to the residence halls. We understand that this may not work for some students and families, based on your existing travel plans and logistics for the day. If you cannot move in at your designated time slot, please feel free to arrive at any time during the move-in period; you do not need to notify us. 

2. Students and families will be responsible for moving personal items into residence halls. Most of our residence halls do not have an elevator, so please plan accordingly; you may wish to bring a hand cart. 

3. Masks will be required for all family members accompanying students into the residence halls, regardless of vaccination status, in keeping with guidance from regional public health officials. Staff stationed at the entrance of all residence halls will carry extra masks.
