Move-In Days Start Thursday

Students moving in at NC State.

Thursday is the first of four move-in days for students arriving on campus for the fall semester.

Or, as faculty and staff like to call them, wish-I-could-work-from-home days.

There will likely be traffic congestion and pedestrian activity on main campus through the weekend, with some parking areas closed for thru-traffic and parking until Sunday.

If you happen to be here, remember to be patient, kind and welcoming.

  1. Greetings,
    It is always so exciting to see families and the community help welcome new students. Thank you for the helpful information with street names and bullets. Is there perhaps a visual such as a map with highlights to indicate the road and lot closures? This is my first full academic year with NC State and I want to be sure to support our growing community.

    Thank you,

    1. Kristy,
      As another first year student I believe that this is a very important question as well, and I believe I actually have at least a partial answer. If you go to, something that I learned about during orientation, you can view a map of the campus with all of the roads and buildings labeled. It won’t highlight the closures to my knowledge but it will provide you a map
