Move-in Information for New Student Orientation

Greetings from the Office of Residential Life!

Thank you for choosing University Housing at Fort Valley State University as your place to live while continuing your education. The residence life staff is excited about meeting and working with you this academic year!

Move-in Date

The move-in date for new and transfer students who are financially cleared is Monday, August 12, 2019, from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm. In order to provide a worry-free move-in process, students should report to their assigned residence hall at the times noted below.

  • Students assigned to WC 1, WC2, WC 4, and WC 6
    Move-in time starts at 8 am
  • Students assigned to WC3, WC 5 and WC 7
    Move-in time starts at 10 am

Finding Your Residence

Some roads are one-way on move-in day, so make sure you follow any posted signage for your residence hall. To access WC 1, 2, 3, or 4, enter Jo Ann Robinson Drive from Carver Drive. For residences of WC 5, 6, or 7, enter the campus from State University Drive. Use this map to locate Wildcat Commons.

Financial Clearance

All residents must be financially cleared before moving in.  This means that your entire amount owed to FVSU must be paid or you must have enough financial aid and/or a payment plan in place before you receive keys.

Housing Assignments and Roommates

Students should check their StarRez account to find information about their assignment and roommates.


How do I insure my personal belongings? Residential Life provides informational pamphlets on Theft, Fire, Natural Disasters & Accidental Damage Insurance to students. Pamphlets are located in Wildcat Commons Clubhouse or students can visit
