Welcome to University Housing!

Here you will find answers to all your questions related to on-campus housing.  Below you will find links to our housing application, information about where to request maintenance for your room, where and how to receive packages and more.  We hope this site is useful to you, and that it will help you navigate through all of your housing needs.


Early Arrival Request

Early Arrival RequestStudents may request to arrive early to campus due to their involvement in an approved University function, University athletics, or for extenuating circumstances.  For groups, requests are made directly by the coach and/or organization advisor; you will not need to fill out the form.

Approval notifications will be sent via the University Housing AppSync portal.  You will not be permitted to check into your residence hall unless your request has been approved.  Do not assume your request is approved unless you have logged into AppSync and have read your notification stating that your request has been approved (or denied).

To request an early arrival time, please fill out the Early Arrival Request form.  Please note that no early arrival date prior to August 16, 2017 will be approved.

Move-In Volunteers Needed

Be a move-in volunteer!Move-In Weekend is Friday and Saturday, August 18th and 19th, 2017.  Freshman and transfer students are moving in on Friday, August 18th and upperclassmen are moving in on Saturday, August 19th. Volunteers are needed to assist students who are moving into their residence hall, answering questions, providing directions, and a variety of other customer service functions to demonstrate the "Appalachian Way." Please note that volunteering for this opportunity requires lifting boxes and other items that a student may move into their room.

Online sign-up is currently open!  Please use the link below to sign up for a shift today!  You will be notified in early August of your assigned volunteer shift.

Fall Move-In Information

Early Arrival RequestMove-In 2017 is quickly approaching.  In July, you will receive information about your room assignment and move-in time.  If you cannot move in during that time, you may move in anytime AFTER your scheduled date and time.  However, you must arrive and check into your room assignment before Tuesday, August 22, 2017 at 6pm to avoid forfeiture of your space.  For more information regarding Move-In 2017, please visit the Fall Move-In page.

Event Promotion Request

Event Promotion RequestUniversity Housing is committed to Appalachian's sustainability efforts as well as to the timely dissemination of events and information to our students.  In an effort to meet both needs, we are moving to an online newsletter for our students that will include flyers, event information, and news that would generally be posted in the residence halls on bulletin boards.

If your office has information to share exclusively with on-campus residents, please submit the information using the University Housing Promotion Request Form

Please do NOT print flyers and deliver them to the University Housing office.  All flyers will be sent electronically once they are provided in a suitable format.  If your information is meant for all Appalachian students (not just those living on campus), please use the AppSync Promotion Request form available on the Clubs and Organizations AppSync portal to have your information included in the weekly CampuSync newsletter.
