Move-In 2024

May 6, 2024

The Ohio State University is looking forward to welcoming our Buckeye Bound students home for this autumn!  All students who plan to live on-campus in the autumn, including incoming first-year students, will receive housing and roommate assignments toward the end of July.

Move-In will begin on Wednesday, August 14. All residence halls will be available for Move-In from Wednesday, August 14, through Saturday, August 17.  Students who wish to arrive earlier than their assigned building opens will have the option to pay for an earlier arrival date, as early as August 12, for a $38 daily early arrival fee. All students will need to schedule a day and time for their arrival through the housing portal.  More information on the arrival process will be available after finalized housing assignments are released beginning around the end of July.  


Are you interested in being a volunteer and part of the excitement of Move-In, August 2024?  If so, you may want to consider becoming an Ohio State Welcome Leader (OWL). The OWL program is a great way for you to get a jump start into autumn semester and meet fellow Buckeyes. Learn more about the program on the OWL Webpage.
