Welcome to VCU

2019 Move-in


12-month Move-in


Ram Camp Move-in


9-month Move-in

Residential Life and Housing would like to extend a warm welcome to all students participating in VCU Move-in. We are excited to have you be a part of our vibrant on-campus residential community.


The best place to start your Move-in experience is to read through your hall specific Move-in information by clicking your hall name in the header. There you will find check-in times, Move-In tips, parking information and more.


Download RAM Guide App and search "Move-in 2019". This app offers users turn by turn directions to halls, location updates, messaging to VCU Housing Staff, maps and more.

Lastly, remember to have fun! Moving in with more than 3500 other students can be stressful, so we ask both students and their families to read all the Move-in information thoroughly to help make this process go as easy as possible.

If you have any questions, please send an email to vcuhousing@vcu.edu.

Move-in Tips
  • Bring hand truck or cart. That way you do not have to wait for a cart to move-in your belongings
  • Be selective about what you bring. Most students bring too much with them and the more you pack the more you will have to move
  • Coordinate with roommates to make sure you do have duplicate items
  • Stay hydrated
  • Checkout activities in the commons and welcome week
  • Remember to bring your VCU ID with you to check in. If you haven’t been issued your VCU ID, you will need another form of photo identification when you check in.
  • Remember that loading zones are for 30 minute parking only; this may mean you will need to unload your vehicle to the curb and have someone wait with your belongings while1 you park and check in. (Helpful tip: You will spend less time waiting with your belongings on the curb if you bring a hand truck or cart for moving boxes and big items!)
  • Label all items with name, room number, and contents to ensure that nothing gets misplaced, and items are easily located when unpacking.
  • The VCU Police Department would like to remind you that larceny is the most reported crime on campus. Please don’t leave your valuables unattended at any time.
  • Checkout activities in the University Student Commons
