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
  • Make move-in easy! Bring your own hand truck or cart so you do not have to wait for a cart to become available in order to move your belongings
  • Be selective about what you bring. You'll make memories and collect more treasures here at VCU! Remember, the more you pack, the more you have to move
  • Communicate and coordinate with roommates to make sure you do not bring duplicate items (no need for two TVs). As a reminder, only one mini fridge is allowed per room. GRC residents should not bring a microwave or fridge at all, as one is provided in the room. 
  • Remember to bring your VCU ID with you to check in - if you have not yet been issued your VCU ID, you will need to have another form of identification when you check in
  • Streets and curbs are for unloading only - this means you will need to unload your vehicle on the curb and have someone wait with your belongings while 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). Volunteers will be available to help you move your things more quickly
  • Label all items with name, room number, and contents to ensure that nothing is 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 do not leave items unattended at any time
  • Move-In is hard work; remember to stay hydrated!
