Spring 2021 Move-in Instructions
For new and returning students living in the residence halls this spring:
- Move-in will begin on Feb. 7 and students will need to schedule a move-in monitoring appointment.
- Students can begin selecting their move-in monitoring appointment Thursday, Jan. 14 at 10 a.m. MST.
- Students are encouraged to schedule appointments between Feb. 7 and Feb. 13, as in-person/hybrid instruction classes begins Feb. 15. However, for added flexibility and convenience, students have the opportunity to select appointments to arrive as late as Feb. 18.
- There are a limited number of appointments per hall, per day. It is highly encouraged that students wait to confirm travel arrangements until they have scheduled their move-in monitoring appointment.
- In support of our students and families, previously published spring room and board rates will be reduced by approximately 25% to account for delayed move in.
- All students living in the residence halls and Bear Creek are encouraged to get a SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) PCR test within five days of their move-in monitoring appointment.
For students living in Bear Creek this spring:
- New students living in Bear Creek apartments are able to begin moving in on Jan. 10 and will need to select a move-in appointment. Students will be able to select their move-in appointment beginning Dec. 17.
- Current Bear Creek residents who will be leaving or traveling for winter break are encouraged to return after Jan. 4 so they can complete a COVID-19 monitoring appointment within 24-48 hours after their arrival.
Please be sure to refer to our COVID-19 Information on Housing and Dining for more information.
Move-in appointments will be scheduled through the students MyCULiving portal.
Spring 2021 Move-in Process
Spring 2021 Health Precautions During Move-In
Residence Life staff have been working closely with campus, City of Boulder and State of Colorado health officials to plan for and implement move-in 2021. In order to minimize disruptions in the process, and with your health and safety in mind, the University of Colorado Boulder is asking all students, families and guests to abide by the following expectations:
- All students, families and guests over the age of 2 are required to wear a mask, or other facial covering throughout the move-in process. We encourage all those visiting to bring a mask that is comfortable for them. A limited number of disposable masks will be available for those who are unable to provide their own.
- Up to two family members or guests may accompany a student to campus. With the realization that residence hall corridors and lobbies will be more heavily trafficked during move-in, up to one family member, or guest, may accompany the student inside of their residence hall at a time.
- A limited number of move-in luggage carts will be available for students to check-out. For your own comfort, families are welcome to bring their own dolly or collapsible moving cart.
- CU staff will regularly wipe elevator buttons, handrails, door handles and other commonly touched surfaces.
- Elevators are not available in all residence halls. Where elevators are accessible, for your safety, the capacity will be limited to one related group at a time. When possible, we encourage students to use the stairs to reduce elevator lines.
Spring 2021 Move-in COVID-19 Testing and Monitoring Instructions
We strongly encourage all students to complete a COVID-19 PCR test from home within 5 days prior to their arrival to campus.
- Testing prior to travel helps to mitigate any transmission risk during travel, and on campus upon arrival.
- If you are unable to test from home, you will be required to participate in the saliva monitoring process before checking into your residence halls.
- For students arriving between Feb.7 and Feb. 13, your PCR test results will be verified by a medical provider at your designated monitoring location. If you bring a PCR test that has a negative result and is administered within 5 days of your arrival, you will not be required to complete the salvia monitoring.
- If you receive a PCR test with positive results, we ask that you remain at home, off campus, until you are cleared by your medical provider.
