Fall Move-In 2023: What to Know
Saint Louis University is set to come alive this week with the newest Billikens starting their college journey and arriving on campus for Fall Move-In.
First-year student Move-In will take place Thursday, Aug. 17, through Friday, Aug. 18. Returning SLU students will move back to campus Sunday, Aug. 20.
Detailed information about Move-In day, including time slots, can be found on the Housing and Residence Life website.
Members of Oriflamme, the Department of Housing and Residence Life and resident advisors (RAs) will all be waiting to help arriving new Billikens and their families. Additionally, other staff members and student volunteers will be on hand to help with Move-In matters, directing vehicle and pedestrian traffic, holding doors and managing elevators.
For any maintenance issues, including things like electrical or heating/cooling issues, in an on-campus residence hall or apartment, contact Facilities Services at 314-977-2955 or submit a facilities service request through MySLU.
How to Get Around During Move-In
Traffic will be heavy on the streets surrounding campus on Move-In days. Faculty, staff members, students, and other campus visitors should plan for extra time to get to and from campus locations.
The entire Laclede Garage will be used as a staging area for students moving into the Griesedieck Complex and Grand Hall. After students have checked in and unloaded on the main level, they will move their vehicles to the bottom or top level.
Laclede Garage permit holders must park in the Olive Compton Garage from 6 p.m on Wednesday, Aug. 16, through 7 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 18.
- Drivers should watch the road for extra pedestrians and golf carts, and proceed cautiously and slowly, as more people will be crossing streets on and around campus.
- Need a map? There are kiosks are throughout campus to help people get around, but a map also is available online.
