Move-In Information

Hello Hawks!

It's almost time for move-in! Our team is excited for you to join us on campus in August! Below you will find information regarding our 2019 fall move-in for residential students.

If you have not already done so, please login and complete our Housing process in the UHCL Housing System. As always, if you have any questions, please contact Student Housing and Residential Life via email at or phone at 281-283-2615. 

Hunter Hall Move-In Schedule

Building Thursday 8/22/19 Friday 8/23/19 Saturday 8/24/19
Hunter Hall Floor 3: Morning
Floor 4: Afternoon
Floor 1: Morning
Floor 2: Afternoon

Students may check in at Hunter Hall at any time on or after their assigned check-in date and time. There is no need to call in advance.  

Entering Campus

We advise entering into campus via Entrance #3 at Bayou Road E., from Middlebrook Drive. This entrance will bring you the closest to Hunter Hall. From there, you will be directed into the traffic flow pattern for move-in. There will be volunteers directing you as to where to go.

Check-In Process

As you and your family and friends move closer to Hunter Hall, all students will check in at the front desk (inside the hall). At check-in, there will be friendly students and staff ready to greet and assist you with the process, hand out campus resources, and answer any questions you may have. 

As you complete the check-in process, our Hawk Welcome Crew of volunteers will assist you with bringing your belongings to your room. Please note that our volunteers will be available for Thursday and Friday, from 9:00am to 5:00pm. We will have limited volunteers available on Saturday. Personal carts will be available for use. We also recommend bringing one of your own to help ease your move-in experience.

Early Arrival

Students wishing to arrive prior to their scheduled move-in date and time frame must complete an early arrival form. This form will be made available on our website beginning in June. Students moving in early will be subject to a daily early arrival fee of $25.00.


If you and/or a member of your family requires an accomodation during Move-In, please reach out to Student Housing and Residential Life at 281-283-2615 at least two weeks prior to your move-in date. We are here to make the move-in process as easy and stress-free as possible.


Each room in Hunter Hall comes with a Twin-size bed (XL), a desk and chair, a closet area with a small bar for hanging clothes, a set of drawers, and an Ethernet port. All beds will be loftable.
