TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -  Today is an exciting day for many U of A students as they begin moving back onto campus this morning.  

Move-in day is also presents an opportunity for thieves to get away with students belongings.  It is expected to be a packed house on campus as students move their belongings to their new rooms in the residence halls.  Residence Life officials are expecting anywhere from 2,000 to 3,000 students to be loading and unloading their stuff today and University of Arizona Police want to make sure everyone's stuff stays safe. 

One important reminder is to lock up those belongings. Another reminder is to take a photo of the most valuable items, in case they turn up missing. A last reminder - do not leave any belongings unattended.  

"Don't leave your stuff unattended," said Sgt. Filbert Barrera.  "There will be people out to help you.  Make sure they are wearing the green shirts."  

A total of 7,000 students are expected to move onto campus in the next few days.
