Hello CMU residents,

It is time to reserve your Spring 2021 move-in time!

Please carefully review the available move-in days and times before registering. To promote social distancing and keep our Mavily safe, we will not be able to accommodate move-in times outside of the following schedule (i.e. no walk-ups!).


Move-in Date Available Times
Monday, January 18 3-9pm
Tuesday, January 19 3-9pm
Wednesday, January 20 3-9pm
Thursday, January 21 3-9pm
Friday, January 22 3-9pm
Saturday, January 23 3-9pm


Schedule one move-in timeslot. If you would like to change your move-in time, please use the ‘Change/Cancel Appointment’ button at the bottom of your confirmation email.

Residence Life will NOT be able to accommodate early or late arrivals. If you miss your timeslot entirely, you will be asked to sign up for a new move-in time in the future.

Your unique move-in registration link was emailed to your CMU email on December 9.

Important Reminders:

  • Students MUST provide a negative COVID test result prior to moving on campus (Testing at CMU begins January 18, 2021) unless the student tested positive within the 90 days prior to move in. Those who have been positive, please be prepared to show your positive test results (dated) as confirmation.
  • Students returning prior to January 18 may quarantine within their residence hall while awaiting results, pending Residence Life approval. Students returning prior to January 18 were required to receive approval from Residence Life in November.
  • Students in Mesa and the surrounding counties may sign up for a test within the 7 days leading up to their move-in timeslot, including the day of move-in. Students in the surrounding counties are encouraged to test at CMU and return home while awaiting negative results.
  • Mail-in test kits did not work (piloted for the fall semester). Students may test at CMU or a regional test site, and should check their email in the beginning of January with instructions to sign up for a COVID test.
  • It is VERY important to coordinate your test date/time with your move-in timeslot. Students testing at CMU should test between 8am and 12pm if possible, and schedule a move-in time no earlier than 6pm the same day. Students testing at a regional or third-party testing site may test within the 7 days prior to their move-in timeslot, and must have negative test results prior to moving in.
  • Students testing at a third-party testing site will need to upload their negative test results and complete the Third Party Private Test Results Form.
  • Visit the CMU COVID FAQ page for additional testing information.
  • Same-day test results are not guaranteed. Students may be asked to stay the night at a hotel at the expense of The University.
  • To-go Meal Plan options start Monday, January 18 at brunch. There are limited food service options and hours prior to January 18.

We look forward to having you on campus in just a few weeks!
