Checking In

  • All residents must sign up for a check-in time, students will be sent information about check-in in August, through the Housing Portal.
  • Students will only be able to check in at their scheduled time.
  • When checking in, go to your hall check in area without your belongings.
  • If you do not have your MAV ID card, bring a government issued ID (e.g. driver's license, passport, etc.)

Where can I park? 

We have created a parking map to reference for Move-In Event. Check out your parking options below!  

Vandergriff Hall residents will receive an email prior to the Move-In Event showing which parking garage would be most convenient to park in corresponding to their room number.

All residents will be able to order their parking permit online after August 1st. For more information on parking permits and detailed instructions on how to sign up, check out Parking Service's webpage.


Roommate notifications are typically sent out the first full week of August to your UTA email address for students who have a confirmed reservation. If you do not get it by the end of the first full week of August, please email us at

Because we sometimes get last minute cancellations as students finalize their college plans, these changes may affect who your roommate will be. Waiting until the first week of August allows us more confidence that your roommate provided will actually move into the residence hall. Keep in mind, we sometimes need to change roommates last minute and if we do this, we make every attempt to notify you prior to move-in day.

What Comes in My Room? 

Each room and residence hall is slightly different. Housing tries to provide the items listed in each location on the individual residence hall pages. WiFi is included, for information about how to update, view our MyResNet Guide.
