University of Nebraska–Lincoln student Thomas Lilly (right) smiles as he and his roommate, Luke Haberman, carry a futon into Schramm Hall in August 2017. Students at Nebraska will move in from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. the week of Aug. 13.

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln will see thousands of students moving in to residence halls in the span of a few days prior to the start of fall classes on Aug. 20.

Students will move in the week of Aug. 13. Although the official move-in dates are Aug. 16 and 17, early arrivals for band, ROTC and other students begin earlier in the week.

Visitors and Lincoln residents should be aware of minor traffic delays in the City Campus area due to lane closures and congestion from move-in traffic.

Motorists traveling through campus will see traffic lanes shifting to allow temporary diagonal parking in front of Neihardt Residential Center, on the east side of 16th Street. Seventeenth Street is closed between R and Vine streets, with access only to campus buildings. Students and parents should plan for delays because parking near many residence halls is limited.

Construction near Vine and 17th streets will cause more congestion than normal. Students and parents have been advised to use drop-off, move-in parking zones near their assigned residence halls. The move-in zones are limited to 30-minute parking. Parking and unloading information for each residence hall can be found here.

A "move-in" guidebook app is available for smartphones and tablets here. The app includes GPS-based maps, contact information and more about arriving on campus.
