We are so excited that you will be living with us for the 2024–25 academic year! We just wanted to take a quick minute to let you know of some important dates and information for the coming year.

Move-In Fall 2024

At the beginning of July, students can log in to their MyIUP account and sign up for a date and time to move in for the fall semester based on whether they are a new first-year/transfer student or if they are a continuing student. Keep an eye on your email or one of our social media channels (Facebook and Instagram) for more information.

  • New first-year students move in the weekend of August 17–18 so that they can participate in Welcome Week.
  • Continuing students move in the weekend of August 24–25.
  • Early/Late Arrivals: If you cannot make one of the assigned dates or if you are assisting various university activities/clubs/organizations, then you can sign up for an Early or Late arrival timeslot.

Reach out to your new roommate—get to know them!

Talking to your roommate or suitemate before you start to live together is a great first step to making your transition to living on campus a good one. Here is how to view your room assignment and roommate:

  • Log in to your MyIUP account
  • Go to Discover and search for "housing"
  • On the New Undergrad Students: Start Here card, select Sign up for housing and a meal plan
  • Click Continue
  • Scroll down to see your room, roommate’s name(s), and email address(s)

The information we provide about your roommate is IUP directory information and uses the student’s IUP email address. If you have not checked your IUP email in a while, it may be time to!

Items Not to Bring to Campus

We have a few prohibited items that students are not permitted to have in their residence hall rooms. Some of the appliances on this list might surprise you! Usually, an item becomes prohibited because of its ability to cause a fire.

  • air fryer
  • toaster and toaster oven
  • smokeless grill, George Foreman grill, or other similar appliances
  • electric potpourri/candle/fragrance burner/pot
  • electric space heater
  • electric skillet and hot plates
  • fog machine
  • weapons including kitchen knives exceeding 4” in length
  • rice cooker and crock pots

Did you know that you can find a complete list of prohibited items along with other important information in your Housing Agreement?  See the housing FAQ for more information.
