Welcome to The University of Texas at Austin!
We know that you might be going through information overload as you get ready to move to UT Austin. Use this page as a helpful guide about what to prepare during the summer, what to pack and what to expect when you arrive on campus.
This page will guide you through the steps you can take to get ready for Mooov-In. You can learn about the actual Mooov-In process here.
We're looking forward to seeing you on campus! Hook 'em!
What to Bring?
Preparing for your first year at UT is exciting! We know you're itching to get into your new residence hall. Check out these handy lists of what you should (and shouldn't) bring with you to campus.
When packing for Mooov-In, try to pack as efficiently as possible so your car can be easily unloaded.
What Will You Find In Your Room?
No matter which residence hall you live in, every room contains:
- Desk and chair
- Extra-long twin bed*
- MicroFridge (combination microwave and mini-refrigerator/freezer)
- Hanging space
- ResNet Internet Service
- Recycling container and wastebasket
- Cable TV Service

If your room has a connecting or private bath, the bathroom will also contain a shower curtain.
*While some rooms in Kinsolving or Littlefield may have twin beds, it is still recommended that all residents bring extra-long twin bedding
Did You Know?
Every room comes with a MicroFridge (a mini-refrigerator with a built-in freezer and microwave). Talk with your roommate about keeping the MicroFridge stocked with plenty of healthy options. Or, if you feel like doing some cooking of your own, you can always check out cooking equipment from your hall's front desk and make a meal in the community kitchen.
UTPD offers engraving machines for students to use. You can engrave your driver's license number or contact information on electronics, bicycles, etc. to help keep your property safe. Check with your hall's front desk to find out when UTPD will be in your hall to engrave belongings.
Bevo Bucks can be used at over 130 different merchants, both on- and off-campus.

Bevo Bucks are also the only way to pay for printing on-campus through UTprint. For a full listing of merchants who accept Bevo Bucks on- or off-campus, click here.
You have access to a registered dietitian on campus. If you have questions about allergies, nutritional goals or healthy habits, you can meet with the registered dietitian free of charge.
