Get Ready for Fall Move-in

The Fall 2023 semester is approaching fast and with it comes new classes, new housing and (for some students) an entirely new school. In the middle of all this newness, one thing stays the same: Move-in and Welcome Days, when incoming students move into their new residential experience on the hilltop, and we celebrate the arrival of all students for the new semester. 

We’re excited to have all Hilltoppers on campus this fall and to offer the majority of classes in person! Throughout the year, we’ll continue to make the health and safety of our community a top priority by adhering to our Healthy Hilltop guidelines.

Fall 2023 Move-in 

You’ll receive an email from Residence Life in your SEU inbox providing detailed directions. Please do not make any firm travel plans until you’ve received a confirmation email from Residence Life confirming your move-in date and time.

To move-in, you must:

  • Be registered for Fall 2023 classes
  • Submit your proof of meningitis vaccination

You’re allowed two family members or guests to assist you with moving in, and you’ll be responsible for bringing your own move-in supplies (carts, stools, etc.).

Fall 2023 Move-in Dates:​

  • August 22 - Freshman Orientation 5 Attendees
  • August 23 - Freshmen, Sophomores, NEW Transfer Students, & Exchange Students
  • August 25 - Returning Juniors & Seniors

For more information about move-in, visit Residence Life or view the full schedule.


Once you arrive on the hilltop and settle into your residence hall, get ready to have some fun! From Aug. 19–21, you’ll take part in Anchors, a series of events designed specifically for first-year students. Anchors will help you acclimate, engage, connect and transition into your new life at St. Edward’s. Please note that Anchors only occurs in the fall. 

Anchors, our second-stage orientation program, is mandatory for all first-year students! Please monitor your SEU email account for more information on Anchors. Details coming soon!
