Creating the Extraordinary Student Experience: Office of Student Life


Move-In 2021

June 7, 2021

The Ohio State University is looking forward to welcoming our Buckeye Bound students home for this autumn! As we plan for a reactivated semester, we encourage new students and their families to review the information about how we are planning to keep our campus community safe and healthy while ensuring the iconic and extraordinary Ohio State experience.  All students who plan to live on-campus in the autumn, including incoming first-year students, will receive housing and roommate assignments around mid-July.

The Move-In process will occur over a period of six days leading up to the beginning of the autumn semester. Residence hall openings will be staggered over this period. Students will schedule a Move-In date and time to ensure a limited number of students move onto each floor of each building at a time with the goal of facilitating physical distancing throughout the entire Move-In process. Scheduled move-in time blocks will occur from August 16 to August 21. Students will be emailed in early-August to schedule their Move-In date and time.

Please check back regularly for updates as information is subject to change. For the most up-to-date information about the autumn semester, please visit
