Move in day for U of A freshmen - Tucson News Now

Move in day for U of A freshmen

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

It was a very busy day on the U of A campus on Thursday, Aug. 17, with traffic jams and furniture being hauled from cars to residence halls.

Thursday was one of the big moving days for students, mainly freshmen, as they get to know their new surroundings.

In total, 1,790 students moved into their dorm rooms. By the end of the weekend there will be 6,600 students moved into their rooms.

Some advice from the housing folks at the U of A:

Limit the amounts of things students bring. Don't pack the whole house or bedroom and think it will fit into a small dorm room. It won't fit.

Plus, parents and students should read all the material about moving day so they're informed about changes to parking or anything else.
