Move-in Day set for August 23

On Thursday, Aug. 23, about 1,300 new Wright State University students will move into their quarters on campus. This operation will last from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and will involve 110 golf carts, 200 volunteer faculty and staff members, and about 300 student volunteers.

New residents should remember to bring items such as

  • Extra-long twin-size bedding
  • Cooking utensils
  • Seasonal clothing

Some items, such as hot plates and pets other than fish, should be left at home.

For more information about what to bring or not bring, the complete Move-In Day schedule and check-in information, future residents should visit the Operation Move In website: https://webapp1.wright.edu/movein/.
