Residence halls on the Pleasantville campus

Residence Hall Move-In Plan

Moving in to the Residence Halls for Fall and Spring Semesters

All students moving into the residence halls are required to select a move-in appointment prior to arrival. The Housing Operations Staff will send out full details to all students with directions on how to select a move in appointment. Please note that students will be required to complete their Housing Agreement, their Housing Pre-Arrival Form, ensure their student account is in good standing, and be compliant with the University’s COVID-19 Vaccination policy before they will be able to select a move in appointment.

Move in details (and directions for new students regarding selecting a move in appointment) will be sent as follows:

  • Fall arrivals - an email will be sent in August
  • Spring arrivals - an email will be sent in January
  • Spring returning student move in (for students who lived on campus in the fall and are returning from winter break) - an email will be sent in November with move in reminders (note: fall resident students returning from winter break will not need to select a move in appointment prior to arrival)
  • New students, including First Year, Transfer and Graduate students entering Pace for the first time this semester, are asked to select a move-in appointment on the Primary Move-In Days for their campus. These are:

    • Westchester Campus: Saturday, September 3, 2022
    • New York City Campus: Friday, September 2 and Saturday, September 3, 2022

    New undergraduate students who participate in a Virtual Orientation over the summer and will therefore attend in-person Orientation workshops on Friday, September 2 are asked to select a move-in appointment for Thursday, September 1, 2022.

    New students who must arrive early should email housingoperations@pace.edu for assistance. Wednesday, August 31, 2022 is the earliest we can accommodate arrivals for the fall semester. Dining facilities will not open until that day. Please also note that move-in support, including security assistance with traffic management and the availability of moving bins and volunteer moving help, will be limited on August 31, September 1, and after September 3, 2022.

  • Returning students may select a move-in appointment on any of the following days. Please note that the number of move in appointments on Wednesday, August 31, Thursday, September 1 and Monday, September 5, 2022 will be limited. Most move in appointments will be scheduled from 2:00 p.m.–10:00 p.m., although a limited number of appointments may be scheduled earlier as needed. Students who need to move in on this date but who find no available time slots available should email housingoperations@pace.edu for assistance. Please note that returning students in Pleasantville are asked not to arrive on Saturday, September 3, 2022.

    • Wednesday, August 31, 2022 (limited time slots available, arrivals primarily from 2:00 p.m.–10:00 p.m.)
    • Thursday, September 1, 2022 (limited time slots available, arrivals primarily from 2:00 p.m.–10:00 p.m.)

  • Students are permitted to select move-in appointments after Labor Day (Monday, September 5, 2022), but please be advised that students arriving after September 5, 2022 will be required to arrive at a time when a Resident Assistant staff member is on duty. This means that move in appointments on September 6, 2022 and later will be offered only between 6:00 p.m.–10:00 p.m. on weekdays, and between 10:00 a.m.–10:00 p.m. on weekends.

    Students who do not move in by September 16, 2022 are subject to cancellation of their housing assignment, including forfeiture of their housing deposit.

  • While some move-in periods extend into the evening, we will not fully staff the lobbies with check-in staff after 6:00 p.m. Students moving in after 6:00 p.m. will be required to contact the Resident Assistant on duty upon their arrival to check them in.

  • New Spring 2023 Students

    Students entering housing for Spring 2023 (who did not live on campus in Fall 2022), will be permitted to to select a move in appointment between 10AM and 6PM on January 21 and 22, 2023, as long as they meet the following criteria:

    • They have completed the Housing Agreement (new Spring students will receive directions for completing this form after they complete their Housing Application)
    • They have completed the Pre-Arrival Form (new Spring students will receive directions for completing this form after they complete their Housing Agreement)
    • They have been cleared by Student Accounts (their account is in good standing) for move-in

    Students must also meet COVID-19 and other immunization compliance requirements in order to live on campus.

    Returning Students

    The residence halls reopen for returning students (those who lived on campus in the Fall of 2022) on January 22, 2023. Returning students will not be permitted to return to the residence any earlier than January 22, 2023 unless they meet one of the following conditions:
