Move-In Day Overview

Initiated in Fall 2012, Nicholls’ Move-In Day was implemented for all residential students, families and guests to provide the most welcoming environment possible upon arrival to Nicholls State University! Move-In Day is located in the Student Union Ballroom and arrival location is between the Union and the library – LOOK FOR THE BIG TENTS!

Residents are given an arrival time which they will be given VIP access to our Welcome video presentation, check-in process to pay their $10 RHA fee, receive their keys and inventory & Room Condition Form. After residents check-in they walk into the resource fair and meet back with their families to enjoy all the welcoming faculty, staff, administration and community vendors! The Resource Fair provides residents the opportunity to become familiar and to feel welcomed by the many departments, colleges and organizations at Nicholls State University and businesses within the community. Upon leaving the ballroom, residents will proceed to their hall to move in! Geaux Colonels!
