Move-in Reception

Move-in Reception for Parents and Family

Moving your student in on or near campus can be stressful for everyone.  Housing and Residential Life works hard to make move-in as seamless as possible, and we hope to make your visit a bit more pleasant by hosting an informal event for parents and family members. Take a break from the stress of moving and enjoy light refreshments, visit with staff and faculty, and connect with other families.  This event is Open House style and you are welcome to stay for a few minutes or longer as needed!  

The University of Minnesota Bookstore on the Ground Floor of Coffman Memorial Union

Tuesday, August 29 from 1:00-7:00pm

Please note: Students are more than welcome to join you, however they may be more interested in exploring their new space!
