We're excited to welcome you to life on campus at LSU!

To help make your transition to college life as smooth as possible, move-in information will be posted here throughout the summer. Don't forget to check your LSU email frequently for important updates.

  • Check-in at your hall or community’s front desk.
  • All early arrivals must be with a pre-approved group, camp, or department sponsored event.
