When is Welcome Weekend?


2022 Welcome Weekend/Move-In Day starts Thursday, August 25, 2022.

For first-year students, Welcome Weekend is the start of the semester. Before your first official day of classes, you’ll have 4 days to meet new students, learn AU culture, and get acclimated to campus. There will more specific information to come about the items to be completed before you move in and the move-in route, but we wanted to give you some information now to help you prepare: 

  • All incoming students, regardless of whether you’re living on campus or commuting, are expected to be a part of all Welcome Weekend activities from Thursday-Sunday (the 25th-28th).   
  • The move-in time period on the 25th is from 9:00 a.m – 12:00 p.m. More information about signing up for specific time slots will come from your admissions counselor. There will be time to get your room set up and we’ll have programming for the whole family throughout the day, ending with a “final goodbye” at 8 p.m. 
  • Don’t worry, we’ll have plenty of volunteers to help you and your family move your stuff into your rooms. Speaking of families–bring whoever you want to help celebrate this exciting day! 
  • Check out our recommended packing list and what items you may want to get at the store once you’re here. 

God Bless, Go Ravens!
