University Housing Reminders for Returning to Campus

The residence halls will begin welcoming back students for the Spring 2021 semester in just a few days! Hall residents are asked to return to campus for the spring semester as originally scheduled, between January 14 and January 18. Over the break, Housing & Dining Services sent out important information to hall residents via email about the move-in process. Here’s a recap of how residents can prepare.


  • Log in to, select Move-In Scheduling (under “Residence Halls”), and follow the instructions listed on the page. Sign up for the hour in which you intend to arrive on campus.
  • Then, schedule your COVID screening time. Screenings are scheduled in 10-minute increments, and you may schedule your screening any time within the date and hour in which you scheduled your move-in time.
    • If you have never participated in a CSU COVID screening and have not yet filled out the one-time registration form, complete this form first and then schedule your screening time.
  • If your travel plans are outside the listed move-in dates and/or hours, you must get screened as soon as possible upon arrival.
  • New and returning residents who do not have their RamCard should schedule an In-Office appointment with the RamCard Office so that they can pick it up when they arrive. It will be needed for COVID screening.


  • Plan to arrive within the hour in which you signed up on the Move-In Scheduler. If you already have your RamCard, proceed directly to COVID screening at the Mac Gym. COVID screening must be completed prior to checking into your residence hall. Room keys will be reissued upon confirmation that the COVID screening is complete.
    • If you do not have a RamCard, you will pick it up first, before going to COVID screening. Plan to arrive at the time in which you scheduled your In-Office appointment with the RamCard Office.
  • Limited dining center locations will be open Thursday, January 14 through Sunday, January 17. Please visit for specific dining center hours of operation during Move In. All dining centers open Monday, January 18.
We are looking very forward to welcoming back our residents in the coming days and kicking of the Spring 2021 semester!
