Move-In Guide

In this page, you will find items you should bring when you move into your residence hall, as well as the amenities provided to you by the University.

Move-in Checklist

Use this checklist to guide you as you prepare for move-in! All Pitt first-year students will find out their residence hall and roommate(s) assignments in mid-July. Provost Academy early arrival/move-in details will also be sent out in mid-July.

Panther Card

Don't forget to bring your Panther Card (Student ID) if it is mailed to you prior to your arrival to campus. Your Panther Card gives you access to your residence hall, meal plan, and so much more! Students who complete the Online Orientation and submit their photo online prior to August 1 will be mailed their Panther Card. If you have not received your Panther Card in the mail prior to August 1, you can simply pick it up when you arrive to campus.


Learn about the amenities offered in your residence halls. We're committed to making on-campus living as safe, comfortable, and convenient as possible.
