Top 10 Move In Tips
1. Make use of the Check In System for Residence. Through extensive collaboration between Housing, Financial Services, the Bookstore, the Registrar’s Office and Student Services (ROSS), as well as Information Technology (IT), these departments focused on reducing many of the time-consuming, confusing and frustrating administrative processes that have traditionally taken place on Move in Day. This system provides students with everything they need to check into residence without having to concern themselves with the number of departments involved, or who provides which services.
2. Make Hotel Arrangements and Give Yourself Time to Move In and See the Campus
If you are travelling a long distance and your family needs a place to stay, we suggest you make hotel reservations, as Lethbridge can get very crowded at this time of year. For a list of local accommodations, please contact the Chinook Country Tourist Association at 1-800-661-1222. Arrive early enough on move-in day so you and your family can see different parts of the campus and get a "feel" for your new home. We'll do what we can to make the day as enjoyable for you as possible.
3. Park Close to the Facility
There is short-term parking near each Housing facility to be used while unloading. Once you have unloaded you'll need to park in the long-term parking areas. Don't worry -- there'll be lots of people to provide the information you'll need.
4. Moving into residence
You will pick up your room key(s) or FOBS and provide all the necessary documentation at the applicable office to your year of residence. If you need assistance locating the correct office, please contact Housing Services and we will be happy to assist you.
5. Let Us Know If You Require Special Assistance
The University has been designed with the physically challenged in mind. If you require further assistance, please contact Housing Services.
6. Meet Your Residence Assistant (R.A.)
The R.A. for your section can answer any questions you may have about your new home. Your R.A. will live right in your section of Campus Housing.
7. Enjoy Your Extra Activities
After you move in there are always events planned for you to meet your new neighbors, and to explore the campus and community. This is a great time to learn more about your new home.
8. Buy Your Books
The best way to purchase your books is through the online Check In system and you will enjoy the benefits of Books on a Bed.
9. Get Your ID Campus Card
This card is your personal identification card and will be used for the dining plan as well as the security entrance into University Hall Residence. You can get your card at Jump the Line in June or ID stations on campus on move in day. Once you have the Campus Card, go to the Housing to have them activate your card. If you have used the Check in System your food plan is already activated on your ID card. If you have not used the Check in System, you will have to go to the Housing Office and then to the Food Services office for activation.
10. Have Fun and Enjoy Your New Home!
