Welcome Back to the Wolfpack

New and returning students will move in Jan. 7-9 and will kick off the spring semester with Wolfpack Welcome Week activities.

After a well-deserved winter break, new and returning NC State students who are living in University Housing this spring will move into their assigned residence halls and apartments from Jan. 7-9. Spring semester classes begin the following Monday, Jan. 10.

Here are a few important notes and reminders for a smooth move-in day:

  • Move-in will take place from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. daily, from Friday, Jan. 7 through Sunday, Jan. 9, 2022.  
  • Move-in appointments are not needed for the spring semester.  
  • Students returning to campus and to their same room from the fall semester — or those who were pre-approved for winter break housing — are NOT required to complete the spring check-in process.
  • New spring residents will check-in at their community’s service desk. Only the individual resident should proceed to the check-in location. Any move-in helpers or family members should remain with their vehicle and begin the unloading process.
  • Please see the Protect the Pack website for the most up to date information about COVID-19 testing requirements and protocols.

A Special Wolfpack Welcome for New Students

In addition to virtual New Student and Family Orientation Wednesday, Jan. 5, New Student Programs is offering a wide variety of Winter Welcome Week activities to help new and transfer students get acclimated to campus and meet their classmates through a series of fun activities and events. Winter Welcome Week also allows returning students, faculty and staff to reconnect with old friends and build upon the excitement of another semester at NC State. With over 100 events and activities taking place, there’s something for everyone. Make sure to download the NC State University Guides app to see the full schedule and keep up with all of the fun.
