Move In

Move In

Washington State University’s official move-in begins on Saturday, August 10, 2019, when staff and volunteers will be available to answer questions and help students unload. Week of Welcome events will begin that week, with events that help students meet people and get to know campus. A few pre-arranged university programs require early arrival, and students will be notified of those dates.
