2023-24 Move-In Selection Time Information

We know you are eager to begin planning your move to Michigan State University! And our team is busy planning for your arrival! We wanted to inform you about an update regarding the move-in process, specifically related to selecting your move-in time slot. 

This week, we saw unforeseen spikes in web traffic caused by students sharing the housing assignment launch on social media and our servers have been unable to handle the increased load. In order to prevent future traffic-related system issues, we have implemented a new selection process for move-in time slots.  

Your move-in selection time is below. If you do not select during this assigned time, you will be able to select when the system opens widely on Thursday, July 27, 2023.  

Incoming students will move in between Tuesday, August 22, and Wednesday, August 23. 

Returning students will move in between Wednesday, August 23 and Thursday, August 24. If you need to move in later than August 24, you are not required to select a move-in time.  

We want to emphasize that there are plenty of available time slots, and they are not limited or scarce. We understand that this may cause some concern or stress, but we assure you that there is ample availability for all students to select a suitable move-in time. Our goal is for a direct, efficient process.  

To ensure a smooth process, we ask that you wait for your email with your specific time and refrain from refreshing the My Housing page. Doing so may cause issues, and we will be forced to delay the entire selection process.  

We sincerely appreciate your understanding and cooperation. If you encounter any difficulties or have questions related to the move-in process, please do not hesitate to reach out to the Housing Office at liveon@msu.edu or 517-884-5483 or visit our move-in website: liveon.msu.edu/move-in-details
