More than 5,700 students will arrive on campus during Move-in 2019.

Move-in 2019 begins Thursday, Aug. 15 and runs through Monday, Aug. 19. More than 5,700 students are expected to move to campus during this period.

Faculty and staff will not be able to park in any of the red resident-reserved lots during move-in dates.

Resident reserved parking that will not be available includes Lots 6, 22, 30, 37, 40, 41, 48, 40A, 50 and 64.

Incoming students and parents will use those spaces during move-in, as well as Lot 62 (a yellow faculty and staff lot) and the first-level of Stadium Drive Parking Garage.

Lot 62 and Stadium Drive Parking Garage's first level will be closed to university employees between 5 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 14 and Tuesday, Aug. 20.

Street Closing

South Stadium Drive will be closed, between the roundabouts, from Clinton Drive to Leroy Pond beginning at 7 a.m. for student move-in. This is the block of Stadium Drive just east of Adohi Hall.

While motorists will have access to the roundabouts, they are encouraged to use alternate routes whenever possible because of student move-in traffic. Motorists are encouraged to exercise extreme caution in this area during these times.

Parent and Student Parking

Parents or family members who are assisting their student during move-in can park in the following locations:

  • Garland Avenue Parking Garage (upper levels)
  • Harmon Avenue Parking Garage (any level)
  • Lots on the west side of Razorback Road
  • Lot 56 near Martin Luther King Blvd

Parking for parents, however, should only be used during move-in dates. Not for overnight parking.

Current parking permit holders can still park in the non-resident reserved areas previously mentioned, but should remember that conditions are crowded during move-in.

University Police will have an increased presence during move-in, with officers stationed at various places on campus to help keep traffic moving.

Move-in Routes

Move-in maps show the proper arrival routes to each residence hall. It's crucial that arriving students and parents follow these routes to avoid construction areas that may hinder their arrival.
