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. Our move-in process will take place over 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 as a convenience to families as early as Aug. 14th and appointments can be made through August 19th. Appointments for students living at East Lake are from August 15th-22nd. Once you move into your hall, you are welcome to stay, or you can return home. Just make sure you are back in the halls by Thursday, August 19th to begin your journey. If you do stay in the hall prior to August 19th, please note that there is no transportation and limited activities. 

  • 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 begin on Thursday, Aug. 19th at 4 p.m, so make sure you are moved in by that date.
  • Food service will be available beginning Monday Aug. 16th at 11 a.m
  • Classes begin Monday, Aug. 23rd.
