Move In Information
General Move-In Information
Official WSU move-in begins on Wednesday, August 15. While residence hall contracts begin on Saturday, August 11, WSU highly encourages students to arrive for move-in on August 15 to begin their successful college experience with Week Of Welcome events beginning that night.
This year, the WSU community and departments across campus collaborate to develop to best possible options to facilitate the thousands of students and cars that arrive on move-in day. Your arrival time, the hall you’re moving into, and the particular day you arrive, all play a factor in your experience. Those moving in will need to sign up and indicate their planned arrival time. Please complete the form located at https://movein.wsu.edu/signup
Please plan to come with patience and know that there will probably be some wait times to get into your unloading zone. Hundreds of volunteers, Housing & Residence Life staff, and Parking & Transportation Services staff want your move-in to be smooth and low stress. They are easily identifiable and happy to help. Please keep in mind that pets are not allowed in the residence halls when moving in.
Specific Instructions for Wilmer/Davis
Drive to your assigned hall and look for the parking staff and temporary parking signage directing you to an active unloading zone. Temporary Parking is located in the Crimson Parking lot next to Wilmer-Davis, as well as along the roads surrounding Wilmer-Davis and Stevens halls.
Students should check in with their Cougar Card/photo ID at the Hill Halls front desk, located on the back side of McCroskey Hall. There are no moving carts available for Wilmer-Davis Halls.
As parking is at a premium, once your car is unloaded, it must be relocated to a parking lot. Parking staff will be on site to assist you with directions on best parking lot options.
Extra recycling containers are brought in specifically for move-in. Please pay attention to where you are disposing of garbage versus recycling.
For hanging items on your walls in Wilmer/Davis please use blue painters tape for posters, and 3M Command strips to hang pictures. If you use 3M Command strips, please do not remove the strips; our staff will remove them over the summer if the room needs to be painted. Do not use double-sided mounting products, permanent mounting products, blue mounting putty, tacks or push pins, masking tape, or duct tape.
Words of Wisdom from past students and parents

Should I get renter's insurance when I live in University Housing?
Yes! While you may be covered under your parent’s homeowner’s insurance, claims against homeowner’s insurance can be expensive, especially compared to renter’s insurance. Personal property insurance is recommended by WSU. This insurance will cover your belongings if they are accidentally damaged, stolen, vandalized or suffer a loss from water, fire, smoke, etc. It’s very important to purchase coverage (starting at $65 for the year for $2,000 worth of coverage) so that in the event an emergency arises, you will have the funds to replace your items. If a loss occurs, WSU is not responsible. We strongly encourage all students to purchase this insurance as unfortunate situations can and do happen. Here are some common situations that can occur: 1. Water damage from sprinklers going off 2. Fire, smoke, explosion, windstorm 3. Theft 4. Accidental damage 5. Vandalism To purchase this coverage, please visit http://www.haylor.com/college/washington-state-university/. You can also reach our broker that handles this plan (Haylor, Freyer, & Coon, Inc), at 866-535-0456 or firstname.lastname@example.org and they’d be happy to answer any questions that you have and help you enroll.
What can I use to hang posters and pictures on the walls in this hall? What can I not use?
Please use blue painters tape for posters, and 3M Command strips to hang pictures. If you use 3M Command strips, please do not remove the strips; our staff will remove them over the summer if the room needs to be painted. Please do not use double-sided mounting products, permanent mounting products, blue mounting putty, tacks or push pins, masking tape, or duct tape.
Can I bring my own microwave?
No, because the electrical capacity of the hall cannot handle individual microwaves. You can rent a Microfridge from us at check-in, first come, first serve.
Can I bring a mini-fridge or microfridge?
Yes. Check the Housing and Dining Policies link in the Residence Halls Contracts and Policies section for more information and scroll down to get to the sections on Microfridges or Refrigerators.
