Housing Update 3-20-20

I want to provide some final updates as we get closer to our designated move out week for the residence halls at MSU. Please pay special attention to these final updates so that your move out process can be as smooth as possible given this unprecedented and unique situation that we find ourselves in.

Be Attentive to Law Enforcement

In an effort to maintain order and conform to recommendations of CDC guidelines, please remain in your vehicle until instructed to exit from uniformed law enforcement. Multiple agencies will be providing support to our move out process and they will advise you on what to do around the halls.



Please refer to previous emails about who should stay home. Safety in these times is everyone’s job. Please refer to previous safety updates about the number of people to bring (1 or 2) and who not to bring (at risk individuals, sick individuals, etc.).

*Buildings not listed above (East Mignon, West Mignon, Fields, Eagle Lake Apartments, Normal Hall and Mays Hall) do not have floor restrictions and will be available for all floors from 9 a.m. – 7 p.m. on their scheduled days.

Traffic Flow

Here is building-specific information and maps about where to enter and how to exit for your move out process. It is vital that these instructions be followed to minimize traffic backups and speed of the process.

Materials to Bring

It is in your best interest to have items you will need for your move out like boxes, hand trucks, carts, or dollies for you to complete your move. These items will not be provided for you.

Adherence to Move Out Schedule is Vital

If you are unable to complete your move out on your designated day or on the alternative day of Friday March 27, it is highly advised to schedule a time between March 30 and April 10 as provided in an earlier email. This is also the most prudent way to move out for those with safety concerns or with at-risk characteristics. Failure to follow the above methods will likely result in significant and lengthy delays.

Thanks in advance for your patience and assistance in making this move out process as efficient as possible given the unique situation. As always, if you need special accommodations or specific considerations, our office is here to help. We are reachable via email at and look forward to assisting you.

Warm regards,
