Early Move-In

Checking in before official opening on Thursday, August 17 at 8 a.m. is highly discouraged.

Halls open Thursday, August 17 at 8 a.m. Move-in information for specific halls is on the Move-In Day page. Select your hall. Directions will follow.

Arriving early as part of an official UNL departmental activity (i.e. RUSH, band, intercollegiate athletics, NUBE, ROTC, etc.):

  • The department hosting your activity/group will provide University Housing with your information. You do not need to complete a Request for Early Check-in form. Check with your department to make sure they have you on their early arrival list and/or with any questions you may have about early arrival charges.

Requesting to move in before official opening:

  • If circumstances necessitate you needing to move in before the official opening, you must submit an Early Check-in Request Form via MyRed>Access Housing Portal>Forms. The Early Check-in Request Form will be available starting Friday, July 14 and forms submitted in July will receive priority review by housing staff. Requests received in August may result in late review.  
  • You will receive an email from UNL Housing within two (2) business days informing you if your request has been approved or denied. If your request is granted, a daily early check-in fee ($35) will be charged for storage and/or occupancy.
