Move-In Day Expectations

Once you arrive to campus during your designated day and time, here is what you can expect:

  • Family and / or friends may accompany you for the move-in process for help, but we encourage you to limit the number of individuals needed for support due to traffic congestion and parking availability concerns.
  • We strongly encourage (but do not require) helpers to be fully vaccinated and / or wear a mask when arriving on campus given the number of individuals who will be on campus during the move-in process.
  • The entire move-in process can take between 1-2 hours long during peak periods.
  • Upon your arrival to campus, you will see signs pointing you where to go.
  • Please note that if you have more than one vehicle, only one at a time will be permitted to park next to the building for unloading.
  • When you arrive at your hall, you will be able to unload your belongings. The driver will immediately move the car to the designated parking area while you go to the check-in area to receive your keys.
  • We will have a limited number of faculty, staff, and student volunteers (“Movers & Shakers”) on hand to help. If you would like assistance, the Movers & Shakers will help you load your belongings into large carts for transport to your room as quickly as possible.
  • Due to the high number of new students moving in, at times you might find it easier to move yourself in without help from a volunteer Mover & Shaker.
  • After you unload the vehicle, you will need to move it to an open parking area, which may be on another part of campus. You will be directed to these areas.
  • We encourage you to pack lightly and bring any hard carts that you may have to expedite your move-in process.
  • Before you unpack everything, use a computer to check your e-mail and complete your room condition report. This is how you note any existing damage or worn items in your room so that you are not charged for them at the end of the year. Do not have a computer handy? Do not worry. We will have hard copies available for you to use. Just ask your RA.

2021-2022 University Housing & Conference Services Resident Assistant Awards

On Friday, April 29, 2022, after a two year hiatus, the Department of University Housing & Conference Services celebrated student staff success during the annual department banquet. We are very proud to announce the winners of the various accolades our department awards to outstanding service to the department, the University, and our students.

Dr. Clyde S. and Pauline F. Stine Award

Jamie VanHorn

The Dr. Clyde S. and Pauline F. Stine Endowed Scholarship was seeded in 1988, by Drs. George and Helen Stine as a tribute to the memory of Dr. George Stine’s parents. Dr. Clyde Stine was a member of the Millersville University Administrative Faculty for many years. He provided administrative oversight for the residence hall program as the Dean of Men.

Dr. George Stine, Professor of Sociology, and a founding member of the Department of Sociology and Anthropology, retired in 2003, after a distinguished 37 years at Millersville University.  Dr. Helen Stine retired in 2003, after many years as a Reading Specialist serving the School District of Lancaster.

It is our honor to be one of very few Student Affairs Departments recognized with an endowed scholarship. Drs. George and Helen Stine chose to recognize a Resident Assistant because Dr. Clyde Stine viewed the residence halls as an important experience in the life of a scholar, and realized that Resident Assistants provide a fundamental role in the transition from student to new professional.

The Stine Award is given annually to a continuing Resident Assistant member of the junior class. The successful applicant must have a record of demonstrated outstanding service and positive contributions to the Department of Housing and Residential Programs and the general campus community. Applications are reviewed and the recipient selected by members of the Housing and Residential Programs Department Administration. The recipient will receive a monetary scholarship applicable to the expenses of their senior year.

Jamie does her best to provide fun programs for the residents and is always available to talk when someone needs help or advice. She is always level-headed and never lets someone’s negative attitude bring her own attitude down. When dealing with a difficult topic, Jamie is always positive and tries to help everyone focus on the goal and stay determined. Any time there is a challenging situation, Jamie is always willing to help and take the lead on resolving the situation.

Academically, Jamie excels at making sure she is doing her best to reach her graduation goals and success for after college. Outside of the Resident Assistant Position, Jamie has been involved in other activities around campus and the community. Jamie volunteers at the Loft and works with the MU Color of Teaching organization, who goal it is to support current MU students of color that are education majors by providing them leadership opportunities and a support group network.

Spring 2022 Move-In Testing FAQs

*** UPDATED AS OF 01/14/21 at 9:15 PM ***

If I tested positive with COVID-19 recently, will I still need to be tested at move-in?

If you tested positive for COVID in the past 90 days you are exempt from Spring 2022 move-in testing; however, you will still need to sign-up for a “test” slot for check-in.  In lieu of being tested, please show a copy of your provider’s letter and/or a copy of your COVID-19 test results.  (Your documentation will need to have a test date to ensure it meets the 90-day window requirement)

Can I return to campus on Day 5 of isolation or quarantine, per the new CDC guidelines?

Millersville University is using the guidance from CDC for congregate settings. The University requires a 10-isolation period for students who test positive with COVID-19 and a 10-day quarantine period for students who are unvaccinated and had a significant exposure to a COVID positive individual.

Are you accepting home test kits?

The University is providing FREE antigen testing at move-in.  We will NOT be accepting negative results from a home test kit.

Are your accepting negative test results from an outside facility?

A rapid Antigen or PCR test is acceptable if performed at a medical facility/pharmacy/doctor’s office, etc. Remember, tests need to be performed within 72 hours prior to arriving on campus. At-home tests are NOT accepted.

You still need to schedule an appointment for testing and show your results to the testing staff to be exempt from testing. They will then provide you with a clearance certificate to move-in to the residence halls.

What happens if I test positive?

Those with a positive result will be contacted and provided additional instructions. A student must return home to isolate for the required 10 days before returning to campus. More complete instructions will be given at that time. 

What about weather concerns for Sunday and Monday?

Additional testing has been scheduled for Tuesday, January 18, 2022 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and 12:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. in the South Village Great Room for those who may be need that option. You may change your appointment through your MAX account as long as enough testing slots are available.
