Fall housing assignments for residential students at Storrs and Stamford were released on Monday, August 1. This is always an exciting time of year for Residential Life as we start to prepare for the end of the month when over 12,000 residential students arrive to campus and begin their transition to college life or continue along their college path. Students feel nervous, anxious, and excited and enthusiastic! We hear from many students and their families and are ready to support and guide these students as they prepare for their arrival.
This year we have seen a very high demand for housing and it has been several years since we were nearly at or over capacity. Some staff may remember these times of being very full but for other staff who may have recently started working at the institution, this may be a new experience for you. There are many students who are still interested in living on campus or disappointed that they were not able to apply. We wish we could house every student who wanted to live here, and we will do our best to advise students that come forward with interest in housing.
We hope that you too, are excited for the end of August. If you’d like to experience the palpable emotions of a move in weekend, please consider joining us throughout campus in parking lots, residence halls and offices to answer phones, emails and to greet our incoming and returning students. https://nam10.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Freslife.uconn.edu%2Ffall-2022-move-in%2F&data=05%7C01%7C%7Cd91fb060ebc84a61f22008da59d17118%7C17f1a87e2a254eaab9df9d439034b080%7C0%7C0%7C637921053324654144%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C3000%7C%7C%7C&sdata=qFvfRJTQfYveqZicZtOBEAOcOt2x6BoCKRJ2hd1mcbI%3D&reserved=0
