Moving In

Make it Easy for Yourself

If you live within a two-hour drive of Slippery Rock, you can make move-in day easier by just bringing the essentials including clothes to last two weeks. Sometime during those two weeks, you can either pick up the rest of your things on a trip home, or invite your parents or family members to campus to come to campus for a visit and ask them to bring you want you need.  By that time, you'll have a good idea of what you really need from home and what can realistically fit into your room.

For the fall 2019 semester, SRU is excited to announce a new partnership with Bed, Bath, and Beyond (Bed, Bath, and Beyond Campus Ready).  If orders are placed by August 8, they will be delivered to the campus mailroom for move-in day (August 22).  The website to order items will remain open after August 8 for on-going orders throughout the year.  Bed, Bath, and Beyond will also be on campus on move-in day and will host a tent sale behind Watson Hall from 9a-6p for residence hall room products or small items students may have forgotten to pack. 

We also have a new partnership with Campus Cube... send a care package to your favorite SRU student.
