Move-In 2023

premium plan Students

Wednesday, August 16

Students on the Premium Plan will be able to move into their residence hall on this exclusive move-in date at their scheduled move-in appointment time.

If you are a Premium Plan student and August 16 doesn't work for you to move-in, you can move in any day following August 16 during your scheduled move-in appointment time.

Move-In Appointments

Every student living on campus will need to schedule a move-in appointment time on the housing portal.

Scheduling a move-in appointment helps with the influx of traffic on campus and lets our hall staff properly prepare for arrivals.

On the day of a student's scheduled move-in, they will receive an email with a QR code. Students will need to have their QR code ready upon arrival at their residence hall. Housing and Residence Life staff will then scan the QR code, officially checking the student in to their residence hall for the Academic Year. 

SCHEDULE A MOVE-IN APPOINTMENT

Students can easily make edits and change their move-in appointment time prior to move-in day directly on the housing portal. 

Thursday, August 17

Students on the Standard Plan will be able to move into their residence hall on this date during their scheduled move-in appointment time frame.

If you are a student on the Standard Plan and August 17 doesn't work for you to move-in, you can move in any day following the 17th during your scheduled move-in appointment time.

What to Bring

Wondering what all you should bring for your new room?  We have some recommendations to help as you prepare for your big move! Ultimately, make sure to bring things that will make your space feel comfortable and like your very own.

What to Expect

Move-in day on Ball State's campus is truly exciting! Please review the following items so that you are prepared and have an idea of what to expect come your actual move-in day.

  • Follow directional signage and the guidance of University Police
    When you arrive on campus, there will be directional signage for each residence hall. Also, please follow the guidance of University Police and parking staff who are there to ensure roads are accessible and the traffic flow is running smooth on campus.

  • Go to your residence hall BEFORE unpacking your car
    It's extremely important to make sure that you are in the correct location before putting in the work of unloading all of the items you brought for your new space.

  • Check-in at your hall's welcome table or tent
    Each hall will have an established welcome table where you will get your room key, important information, and will utilize the QR code sent to your Ball State email (from the move-in appointment time you scheduled) to become officially checked-in for the Academic Year.
  • Utilize move-in equipment
    We will have bellhop style carts available for students to use at our halls. These are usually in high demand, so please be patient with our staff if you are wanting/needing one and need to wait until one becomes available. It's also welcomed for students to bring their own dolly or cart to assist with move in. 
Parking and Shuttles

PARKING

When you get to campus, please DO NOT park on sidewalks, near barricades, in roundabouts, or drives. Cars need to be parked in designated parking areas ONLY and will be asked to move if not. 

Students bringing their cars to campus for the semester need to move their vehicles to their designated parking spaces as soon as they have unpacked their belongings. Please know, vehicles not in their designated parking spaces by the end of each day may be ticketed or even towed.

For questions regarding on-campus parking, please contact Parking Services.


SHUTTLES

Campus shuttles will be running beginning the week of move-in with limited routing. For questions regarding on-campus shuttle buses and transportation, please contact Transportation Services.

If you have questions, please contact our office at 765-285-8000.  

Woodworth Complex is the only housing location on campus without centralized A/C. We understand that some students with medical needs may require air conditioning in buildings without central air.

Lofting and Stacking Beds

Students living in the residence halls have furniture in the room that is loftable or stackable. No purchase or renting from an external source is permitted nor necessary. To loft or stack furniture, a rubber mallet is recommended to help with the process. Students can borrow this tool from the front desk of their residence hall. 

When lofting or stacking furniture in a student room, one window must remain completely free and clear of obstruction. Fire safety codes require at least three feet of space between the window and any items that could obstruct the window for use as an emergency entrance/exit.

Student rooms are checked for loft policy violations periodically. Hall directors reserve the right to require students to remove a loft that does not meet safety guidelines. Loft/bed units must be taken apart and removed from the hall when instructed to do so by hall staff. Loft disassembly must take place before the start of quiet hours at the end of each semester. Room occupants are responsible for any and all damages caused by the assembly or disassembly of such units.


Bed Rails

Students can request a bed rail for their lofted beds upon arrival on-campus. Requests can be made at their residence hall's front desk. Please note that there is limited availability. 

Lofting your bed can be a great utilization of the space in your room! Learn how to adjust stackable furniture by watching the video below that's suitable to your residence hall.

Loft Type 1

Kinghorn, Park, Studebaker East, DeHority, Beyerl (North), North West, Botsford/Swinford, and Schmidt/Wilson

Loft Type 2

Woodworth and Baker/Klipple 

Loft Type 3

Palmer/Davidson and Painter/Whitcraft

In case of an emergency, contact your hall's front desk and University Police at 765-285-1111. Hall-specific information can be found below.
