Students on move-in committee

Move In and Move Out Information

We know you are excited to begin (or continue) your journey at Winona State University and have many questions about what moving into your room will look like. Following the recommendations made by the CDC, MN Department of Health, and the MinnState System, our move-in process will take place over a one week in order to practice social distancing. 

Scheduling Your Move-in Appointment:

All students will need to schedule a Move-in Appointment to move belongings into their room. You can schedule your appointment by logging into your Housing Portal. Appointments for the traditional residence halls will be available Aug. 14-19 and for students living at East Lake Aug. 15-22.

  • You will receive an email from your Hall Director/Area Coordinator about 5 days before your scheduled appointment with specific information related to parking, key pick-up, etc.
  • Orientation, activities and floor meetings will be begin on Thursday, Aug. 19 at 4 pm, so make sure you are moved in by that date
  • Food service will be available beginning Thursday, Aug. 19 at 11 am.  
  • Classes begin Monday, Aug. 23

Bring a Mask—or two! WSU has a mask requirement. Please refer to the Revised WSU Mask Guidelines to stay up to date!
