Welcome to SIUE and University Housing! We are very excited about Move-In Day and your first official day as a Cougar. We have a very organized, efficient moving process. If you are an upper-class student and moving into Cougar Village or Evergreen Hall, please visit the Move In Day - Upper-class page for instructions about how to check-in and get settled in your new home!

If you are moving into Bluff, Prairie, or Woodland Hall, you will receive instructions on when you can move into your new space in your assignment letter sent out in early July. This website will be updated at that time to reflect move in information as well.

A paper version of the below Check-In instructions is included in the assignment letter sent to your home.
