Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI)

Moving In

Most students should plan to arrive on campus on Saturday, August 24 between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. Some students may need to arrive earlier for athletics or ROTC, and will be notified accordingly by their coaches or commanding officer.

Students registered for Student Orientation #5, an overnight NRB trip, or Student Orientation #6 will move-in on the date and time designated by the First-Year Experience Office. Additional information concerning dates, times, and locations for move-in will be provided via your Rensselaer email in late July.

International students should check the ISSS new student website for move-in information.

When you arrive on campus, residence hall staff will be available to welcome you and your family, answer questions, and help you get settled into your new home. You will receive your room key and meet your roommate and resident assistant.

Throughout the day, you can get settled, explore campus, or browse through the bookstore. Your first floor meeting occurs that evening.
