Lot 25: Centralized Check-In for Donner, North Scott, South Gruenhagen, South Scott, Taylor, and Webster


Move-In Day Check-In Location

Move-In at UW Oshkosh is a bit different from other colleges and universities. When you initially arrive to campus at the time you selected, you will head to Check-In. The centralized, drive-thru Check-In is located in Lot 25 for Donner, Horizon, North Scott, South Gruenhagen, South Scott, Taylor, and Webster. When you and any accompanying vehicles arrive, you’ll pull into the designated lane for your residence hall. Staff will come to your vehicle and process your check-in to the residence hall. After checking your TitanCard (or other photo ID), you will be given your keys, unloading passes, and directions to your residence hall’s unloading zone. Your entire check-in will be completed without you having to leave the comfort of your vehicle!

Move-in Day Unloading Pass


Every student may receive up to two vehicle unloading passes that correspond to their residence hall as part of Move-In. The unloading pass will be handed to you when you arrive at Check-In, located in Lot 25. The unloading pass must  be displayed on your rear view mirror as you enter the unloading zone for your building. Each unloading Pass will have a time frame that they have to be used. If you are outside of your time, you will not be allowed into your unloading zone. We will have dedicated MiTitan volunteers available to help you quickly unload your vehicle. Once your vehicle is unloaded, you will need to move it to a permanent parking space. Any cars left unattended in the loading zone will be towed!

Selecting Your Move-In Time


The residence halls will open at 8:00am on the Sunday before Labor Day for New Students and 8:00am on Monday (Labor Day) for Continuing Students. Move-In day can be busy with traffic, parking, luggage, and people. To provide you with the best Move-In experience possible, you need to arrive on campus at a designated time, which you select! Please follow the link to the right to select your Move-In time through the Move-In Scheduler.

You will need to enter your UW Oshkosh username and Net ID to choose your time. You will select your Move-In time as well as indicate how many vehicles will accompany you  at Move-In. As a reminder, each student is able to receive no more than two unloading passes. When you arrive on campus, you will go to Check-In at Lot 25. Please look at the maps to the right or instructions below for routes to Lot 25.

We encourage parents to say goodbye and start heading home by 4:00p.m. so that new students can get ready for orientation activities, beginning with their first floor meeting.

Best Route to Take


During Move-In, traffic is routed into and through campus utilizing specific routes designed with the City of Oshkosh. Review the recommended routes below to ensure a smooth arrival to Check-In at Lot 25. As a reminder, your first stop during Move-In will be Check-In.

MiTitan Crew


What is a MiTitan?

A MiTitan (Move-In Titan) is a UW Oshkosh student who has volunteered their time to help make your Move-In experience great! MiTitans will quickly unload your vehicle and gather your belongings in one location so you can begin moving items to your room. The priority for MiTitans is to unload vehicles quickly so other students can unload and get their belongings into their rooms too. MiTitans are generally unable to assist with taking items to your room.

MiTitans will be at each residence hall to assist with Move-In. MiTitans will be available on Sunday, September 4 from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and Monday, September 5 from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

How will I know who is MiTitan?

MiTitans will be wearing bright yellow t-shirts with the “Buff Enough to Move Your Stuff” MiTitan logo. In addition to unloading vehicles, these students are great at answering your UW Oshkosh questions!

If you have questions or concerns, please contact our office at housing@uwosh.edu or (920) 424-3212.
