PLYMOUTH, N.H.–The busiest day of the year for Plymouth State University and surrounding communities arrives Labor Day, Monday, September 1, from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Nearly 2300 students will converge on campus, with the busiest time from 10:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. Traffic in the towns of Plymouth and Holderness will be heaviest at this time. 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.

All cars will be allowed 15 minutes to unload near the residence halls and then will be directed to park in the Visitor lot next to the Ice Arena or the PE Center Visitor Parking Lot both located on Route 175A across the bridge. By Monday evening, it is expected that more than 80% of the students will have been moved in to their on-campus residences. The remainder will arrive on Tuesday before the first full day of classes start Wednesday, September 3.
