Early Move-In Information

Dismiss message

The Early Move-In Request form is available in MyHousing.

If you need or prefer to move-in earlier than the URI Move-In 2023 start date (September 1st), you may choose to participate in URI Early Move-In Week 2023. This program allows you to access your residence hall, suite or apartment as early as Monday, August 28th.

There is a convenience charge of $75/student/day for this program based on your requested arrival date or actual arrival date, whichever is earlier. Early Move-In charges will be added to your Fall term account by late September. If you are arriving at the request of a URI department/program, you may receive a discounted rate on some or all of your early move-in charges; it is your responsibility to discuss this in advance with the sponsoring department/program.

To be eligible for URI Early Move-In Week 2023, you must be assigned to one of our residence halls, suites or apartments for Fall 2023. We are unable to accommodate students who have off-campus, Greek, or TI/IEP House assignments.

Some things to note about URI Early Move-In Week 2023:

  • You must follow the rules outlined in the 2023-2024 Housing and Residential Life Agreement, the 2023-2024 Housing and Residential Life Community Policies Addendum, and the 2023-2024 Housing Cancellation Policy.
  • Early move-in is a privilege, and inappropriate or disruptive behavior may result in immediate removal until the official opening.
  • Overnight guests are prohibited.
  • Move-in assistance is unavailable.
  • Housing and other campus services may be limited.
  • Meal plans will start on September 1, 2023. Before then, you can purchase meals with cash, RAM Account, Visa, or MasterCard. You can find the hours of service on the Campus Dining webpage.
  • Most lots near residence halls will be for unloading only, after which you must move your vehicle(s) to resident parking lots. Parking in faculty, staff or closed lots is prohibited; your vehicle(s) may be towed. Please do not drive or park on the grass. 

To participate in URI Early Move-In Week 2023:

  • Log in to MyHousing
  • Select the “Applications / Forms” tab
  • Select and complete the “Early Move-In Request” form

Please make every effort to submit your application at your earliest convenience. If you need to change the date of your arrival, you may return to and update this form through August 31st.

When arriving, students who do not have a University ID card should go to the Campus ID Dining Office located on the main floor in the Memorial Union right across from the info desk PRIOR to going to their hall. The ID Office is open 8 am – 4 pm, Monday through Friday.
