Spring 2021 Move-In Details
Residence halls will reopen at 8 a.m., Sunday, January 9 for returning students. In order to be cleared to move onto campus, all students must be fully vaccinated or have an approved exemption from the University of Pittsburgh. Guests assisting with arrival do not need to be vaccinated, but should wear a face covering at all times if not vaccinated. At this time, there are no plans for a shelter-in-place period. Under current mitigation efforts a face covering must be worn inside all University buildings regardless of vaccination status.
- Returning students should check in with their RA prior to reporting to their rooms so they can be officially checked in. (Students arriving after January 9 should notify Housing and Dining Services in advance so can be indicated as a late arrival.)
