Mooov-In Checking In

This page will guide you through the Mooov-In process for the 2019-2020 Long Session. Be sure to check out our ‘Before You Arrive’ page for helpful information and tips.

  1. When Can Residents Check In?
  • Early check-in starts at 3 p.m. Monday, August 19 and ends 11:59 p.m. Thursday, August 22.

    • When? The earliest residents can check in for the Fall semester is 3 p.m. on Monday, August 19. Do not try to move in prior to this time, staff will not be able to assist you.
    • Cost? There is a $50 a day fee for checking in early but nothing is billed until you move in. The fee will be charged to your ‘What I Owe’ page as part of your housing bill. Nothing is due until the first payment of the housing bill on Sept. 15. To check in early, all you need to do is show up at the time/day that you have chosen for early arrival and check in at your assigned front desk.
    • Scheduling? Visit your housing portal page to schedule your early check-in time.
    • Where Do I Go? Go to the designated front desk for your residence hall (see table below).
  • Mooov-In takes place on August 23 and 24 from 7 a.m. - 7 p.m.

    • Officially schedule your check-in time. Sign up for a check-in time before August 12. The check-in scheduler is available on your housing portal page beginning in early July. We will send an email to all contract holders when the check-in scheduler is available.
    • Why am I going to UFCU Disch-Falk Field? The majority of students check-in during Mooov-In, so we host a key pick up at UFCU Disch-Falk Field to accommodate everyone faster. We estimate your wait time at 15 – 20 minutes to get your keys once you are in line at UFCU Disch-Falk Field. All residents must pick up their keys from UFCU Disch-Falk Field prior to unloading at their residence hall.

    • Arrive during your allotted time. Please arrive during your allotted time. If a traffic jam or unexpected delay causes you to be a few minutes late, don’t worry. Relax and drive safely. You do not need to notify University Housing and Dining (UHD) that you are running a few minutes late. However, if you are running hours (or a day) late, try to update the check-in scheduler online or email UT Housing.
    • Mooov-In volunteers. Volunteers will be wearing an official Mooov-In t-shirt. They will be able to help you with any questions.

 

  • Checking In Outside of Mooov-In on Aug. 23 and 24

    • If you need to move in after Aug. 27 you MUST notify University Housing and Dining (UHD) in advance to avoid having your contract canceled. You can do this online. You are required to check in by 4 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 27.
    • During Mooov-In on Aug. 23 and 24 front desks will be able to assist with checking in from 8 p.m. - 5 a.m.
    • No one can check in between 5 - 7 a.m. and from 7 - 8 p.m. while keys are being moved to and from the residence hall desks.
    • After 8 p.m. on August 24, residence hall front desks are open 24/7 to assist with checking in. See the table below to find out where your check in is located.

  1. What to Expect When Checking In

    • You will receive your room key and bathroom code, if applicable. 
    • Your UT ID card will be activated for access to your residence hall and loaded with your meal plan.
    • You will receive a 1-hour unloading zone permit for 1 car per resident. You will be able to park your car in a specified loading zone area near your residence hall. Once you’re done unloading your things or if your loading zone permit expires you can park your car in a nearby garage.

       

  2. What Do You Need to Bring to Check In?

    • Bring your UT ID Card or photo ID to the check-in location.
    • After you accept your key, you cannot be released from your contract. The 2019-2020 housing contract ends May 15, 2020. Refer to the Housing Terms and Conditions for further information.
    • For more information on what to pack visit our ‘What To Bring’ page.  

 

  1. Unloading and Parking

    • Permits. 1-hour un/loading zone permits will be available when you check in.
    • Loading Zones. Designated loading zone parking spaces are available around each residence hall.
    • After unloading the vehicle and before your permit expires, please move your vehicle to an appropriate parking area.
    • After Hour Courtesy. Checking in is allowed 24-hours a day. Out of courtesy for other residents already in the building, we ask that from 10 p.m. - 7 a.m. you move only what is necessary to your room in order to reduce noise during sleeping hours.

 

Additional Parking Details

Parking During Mooov-In

Parking around UT Austin can be tricky. Follow these tips to make your parking experience a more positive one!

  • Unloading: During check-in you will receive a 1-hour loading zone permit. After unloading the vehicle, please move it to an appropriate parking area. Tickets will be given to vehicles who stay in an unloading zone past their sixty minute time frame.
  • Garages (R Permit): Any resident who was offered and paid for a parking garage resident permit must park in the garage they received in the lottery. Use the access card attached to your permit that was mailed to you. If you have not yet received your permit and access card, pull a garage entry ticket and park your vehicle. For staffed garages during business hours (weekdays 8 a.m.-5 p.m.) take the pulled ticket and a photo ID to the garage office to obtain a temporary parking garage access card and temporary dashboard permit. For unstaffed garages, bring your ticket and photo ID to the nearest staffed garage for assistance.
  • Surface Lots (C Permits): Students may purchase a C Permit online at parking.utexas.edu or at any staffed garage office.
  • Parking at UFCU Disch-Falk Field: The East Campus Garage (ECG) is free and available for parking from August  23 at 6 a.m. to August 24 at 9 p.m. while you pick up your check-in information at UFCU Disch-Falk Field.
  • The check-in scheduler helps limit the amount of traffic on campus. Less hectic traffic typically occurs during early morning or late evening check-in times.
  • Parking is limited, so please bring only needed vehicles to campus during this time. Cars with trailers may be difficult to find parking for in loading zone spaces and will not fit in the decks, and therefore are not recommended.

 

We're looking forward to seeing you on campus. Hook 'Em!
