Student Move-In

Monarch Movers

If you are a returning resident, you are welcome to sign up to assist us in greeting our new students to campus through our Monarch Mover program. Monarch Movers help our students move into their buildings and welcome our students to, or back to, campus. Movers will assist with cart check-outs, ice cream handouts, and physically moving items into the halls.

If you are interested in becoming a Monarch Mover for the fall semester please email Sherrell Hendrix: shendrix@odu.edu.

If you live on campus...

Monarch Movers are allowed to move in to the residence halls early in return for assisting. For each 4-hour shift, a student will be waived one night's early arrival fee. Please also complete the Early Arrival Form and return it to our office. Further move-in instructions will be emailed to you.


Early Arrival

Student Move-In

In order to request an Early Arrival to campus students must be with a University sponsored group that requires the student to arrive to campus prior to his or her official move-in date.

What to Bring/Not Bring

Student Move-In

Your room at ODU can be a great space to live comfortably while also expressing yourself. To minimize damage and maximize safety, students are asked to bring only approved items to their on-campus living space.
