Move-in Weekend 2019

Schedule Overview

We recommend that students move-in on Saturday before 4 p.m., and suggest parents plan to leave campus prior to 6 p.m. This will allow students to take part in all the Welcome Week activities with their residence halls.

Getting Unloaded

When you pull up to your residence hall on Saturday, fraternity and sorority members will help you unload your opened car. Make sure to clearly mark all boxes and belongings with your students’ name and room number. Once your car is unloaded, find a parking spot and enjoy the rest of the day.

Getting the Most Out of Your Visit

Seeing and experiencing the University first-hand is the best way to familiarize yourself with all that we have to offer, and to feel comfortable about your new “home away from home.” We suggest some of the following activities to help everyone feel at ease:

  • Bring your camera, take pictures!
  • Drink lots of water, and get plenty of rest.
  • Join another student and their family to take a walk around the campus and locate some of the offices, and/or classrooms, your student will be going to during the upcoming semester.
  • Suggest a short outing off-campus to a local store or restaurant to learn about the Peoria area.


ATMs on Campus are located outside the Bookstore, and in the Michel Student Center.
