We are committed to following all public health and university guidelines related to COVID-19. The check-in process has been designed to facilitate physical distancing; you are allowed a maximum of two helpers (from the same household or if you live alone, from your permitted cohort) during your move-in. Wearing masks inside all public spaces at the University of Alberta is mandatory, so please ensure that you and your helper(s) wear a mask in all buildings.

Move-in times will be scheduled individually to ensure proper physical distancing can be maintained. Please check your ualberta email for information on check-in times.

Please come directly to the Commons Lounge (see the campus map) for your appointment time. In order to maintain physical distancing we ask that you do not arrive early for your appointment. When you first arrive, we will confirm you have completed the pre-arrival documentation. Upon confirmation you will then receive your room key and be provided directions to your residence room.

If you have a vehicle, please First Park in Lot P5. After you have checked in, you may park closer to your building to unload your belongings. The Maximum time to be parked near your building is 45 minutes.
