Traditionally held on the Sunday before the start of classes, PSU Move-In allows students to quickly and efficiently fill the University’s eight residence halls with the help of staff, students and families. University, Holderness and Plymouth police, residence hall staff and building workers will also help incoming students park, unload and move their belongings. PSU athletic teams will also pitch in to help their classmates move in and get settled.

By Sunday evening, it is expected that more than 80 percent of the students will have been moved in to their on-campus residences. The remainder will arrive on Monday and Tuesday before classes start Wednesday, September 2.
