Before You Arrive

Get a jump start on the move-in process by making preparations during the summer. We will contact you via email with more instructions a few weeks before move-in. In the meantime, here are important tips to get you started.

  1. Know your room and roommates 

    • Go to the ATU Residence Life Housing Portal to find your room assignment and roommate(s) contact information. Whether you know the student you will be living with or not, it is important to get to know each other and find out what you have in common. Because residence hall rooms may be smaller than your room at home, it is also important to discuss what you plan to bring to campus.

  2. Get your Tech ID (student ID) and take care of other important needs

    • Go to the Card Office to obtain your Student ID and have access to the hall and meals when you move-in. All students must have one.

    • Make sure you are enrolled in classes. Contact your academic advisor if you are not sure.

    • Get informed about financial deadlines to make sure payments are made on time and avoid being dropped for non-pay. Contact Student Accounts for more information.

  3. Create a packing list: What to bring and Not to bring?
