LSU Move-In Day to be Held Wednesday, Aug. 16
BATON ROUGE – An anticipated 2,500 new and returning students will be moving to campus on Move-In Day, Wednesday, Aug. 16, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. in all on-campus residence halls and apartments.
More than 550 volunteers from the faculty and staff, members of student organizations and friends of the university will team up with Residential Life staff for this exciting event. Volunteers will help students unload their cars, move into their residence halls or apartments and answer any questions regarding campus life that the residents may have.
Among the volunteers will be LSU President F. King Alexander, Board of Supervisors members Rolfe McCollister and James Williams, and around 150 student-athletes to assist those moving into on-campus housing. Alexander will also deliver the address at the LSU Roger Hadfield Ogden Honors College welcome picnic at 11:15 a.m. in the Laville Courtyard.
As part of the LSU First Year Experience Bengal Bound schedule, there are a number of social events to welcome residents to campus as well. Visit the Bengal Bound website for a complete list of campus-wide opening week events.

MEDIA NOTE: Residential Life uses staggered check-in on Move-in Day. Students with last names beginning with L-Z will check in between 8 a.m. and 11 a.m., while A-K names will check in between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. Morning hours may still provide the best photo opportunities, as many of the students arrive early. The university stresses that while media are allowed to gather content outside of residence halls and in the halls’ public areas; they are not allowed to enter residence hall rooms unless invited by the occupant(s) of said rooms.
