2022 Fall Student Instructions
We look forward to welcoming students for the Fall 2022 semester. The general health and safety during the COVID-19 pandemic is a shared responsibility.

All students, families, and guests are asked to comply with the policies, procedures, and protocols designed to support the overall health and well-being of everyone in our university community. Protecting our most vulnerable populations (e.g., medically susceptible, non-traditional, older, and homeless students) is a moral and ethical obligation of the entire Tuskegee community.
COVID- 19 Test Required Prior To Entry
We require all students, faculty, staff, consultants (regularly on campus), and third-party vendors returning to campus for the Fall 2022 semester to send proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test result to reportcovid19@tuskegee.edu by Aug. 22, 2022. 
Those students who do not provide a negative COVID-19 test will not be permitted to enter the campus or facilities, move into on-campus housing, or participate in classes and campus activities. Your name will be on a list, and the University Police will ask for your Student ID, and you will not be able to enter the campus. Review our policies here.
Financial Clearance
Students must be financially cleared to move into residence halls and apartments and attend classes. 
Financial Clearance Dates 
  • Returning students must be cleared by August 12 to move in on Aug.16-17.
  • The Mill at Auburn and University Terrace residents on the master lease should be cleared by August 5 to move in on August 8, 2022. 
Financially cleared means you owe no more than $500 or must be enrolled in the tuition payment plan with Tuition Management Systems.

On Campus Move In Times
The start of the 2022 Fall Semester is Around the Corner! Residence halls open for the Fall semester on August 16-19, 2022. The halls will be open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Move-in will take place over several days to ensure compliance with physical distancing. Residents cannot move into their residence hall until their designated arrival time. If you arrive before your arrival time, we will ask you to come back at your specified time.
Returning to residence halls will be based on the first letter of your last name. If hyphenated, your return will be based on the first letter and first part of your hyphenated name. Example Ferguson-Scott will move in based on the letter group “F.”

Check-In Process
The check-in process will be a curbside check-in. Residents will be limited to two vehicles, and we will not permit box trucks or trailers. Additionally, we ask that all residents limit the number of people they bring with them to 2-3 people.
Upon arrival on campus, residents will proceed directly to their designated centralized check-in location in their residence hall building. 
Residents will drive to the designated building check-in location during their specified arrival time. Residents will show staff their photo ID and give their name, hall, and room number. 
If financially cleared, students will be permitted to move in, and proof of a negative COVID-19 test is verified. 
Arrival and Unloading
After checking in and receiving their welcome packet and room key, residents will proceed to the unloading area at their building. 
When you arrive at your building, you will unload your items immediately. Residents can place their items on the curb while they move their vehicles from the unloading zone to their designated parking area. If a resident has other people with them, we recommend having a single person drive the car while the resident or someone else waits with their items. Additionally, staff will be monitoring the unloading zones.
Residents will be limited to two vehicles, and we will not permit box trucks or trailers. Additionally, we ask that all residents limit the number of people they bring with them to 2-3 people per resident.
There may be volunteers available to assist during move-in. We will be unable to provide move-in equipment to assist with move-in. You are welcome to bring items, such as wagons or dollies, to campus.

We highly encourage residents to pack light. Please read below for some tips regarding packing light:

  1. Visit the Residence Life and Housing webpage and review our checklist page on the website for a list of items to bring/not to bring.
  2. Make sure the packed boxes are light and easy to carry.
  3. Use your storage bins as packing boxes.
  4. Focus on the necessities. Only pack what you need or cannot buy once you arrive in Tuskegee.
Packing light is key to a quick and easy move-in. Remember that you and your family will be responsible for unloading and carrying items to your room.
Parking After Unloading
Please see the attached map to identify spaces where you are able to park after unloading items in the residence halls. Click here to view map.
