PLYMOUTH, N.H. — One of the busiest days of the year for Plymouth State University and the surrounding communities is this Sunday, Sept. 2 when nearly 2,300 students return to campus to occupy University residence halls and apartments.
Students will have from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. to move into their rooms on campus. The heaviest traffic in town and on-campus is expected between 10:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.
All cars will be allowed 15 minutes to unload near the residence halls and then will be directed to park in the Facilities Lot or the PE Center Visitor Parking Lot both located on Route 175A across the bridge.
Traditionally held on the Sunday before the start of classes, PSU Move-In allows students to quickly and efficiently fill the University’s seven 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% of the students will have been moved into their on-campus residences. The remainder will arrive on Monday and Tuesday before classes start Wednesday, September 5th.
This year’s move-in features the reopening of one of PSU’s best-known residence halls, Mary Lyon, which has undergone a $15 million dollar face lift and reconstruction, featuring additional handicap accessibility, energy-efficient windows and heating and cooling systems.
