Make Your Move-In Reservation in SPIRE!

Completing Your Move-In Reservation (video tutorial)

All students must make a Move-In Reservation. Starting on August 14th at 9:00am students may log into SPIRE and navigate to Main Menu > Housing > Move-In Reservation to make a Move-In Reservation and print their boarding pass. Move-In Reservation times are first come first served. Students that do not make a Move-In Reservation by August 28th will be assigned a Move-In time.

All students MUST print out their Boarding Pass and bring it on Move-In Day. Forgetting your Boarding Pass will add a minimum of 30 minutes to your check-in time. 

What if I can't arrive during Move-In?

Students who are unable to arrive during available Move-In Reservation times should contact Residential Life Student Services at 413-545-2100 for instructions.
