Move in Day

Don’t forget to complete your What’s it like coming to UCA? activity before Move-In Day

Read how current and former students describe their experience coming to UCA. Then share your thoughts about becoming a Bear.

Please set aside 30 minutes to do this before Move-In Day. Go to to complete the activity. You’ll need your myUCA username and password to login.

Mark your calendar for August 14, 2016!

How Move In Day Works:

  • Find your Hall on the Map

Know the color of your hall and follow that color path! (Your map can be viewed by clicking each map’s icon at the bottom of this page)

Hall Colors & Move-In Schedule (times are subject to change)


8:00 a.m – 12:00 p.m. 1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
  • Baridon Hall (GOLD)
  • Arkansas Hall (YELLOW)
  • Bear Hall (GRAY)
  • Bernard Hall (PURPLE)
  • Carmichael Hall (PINK)
  • Farris Hall (ORANGE)
  • Conway Hall (RED)
  • Short-Denney Hall (BLACK)
  • Hughes Hall (GREEN)
  • State Hall (BLUE)
  • Locate Assigned Entrance

Follow the signs and the flow of traffic to the specified entrance for your residence hall.

  • Pull Up & Unload

You may have to wait a bit in line, but we will get to you. The goal is to get you in your hall as fast and easy as possible. That’s why we will do all the moving for you! Unload all of your stuff in the marked spot on the sidewalk.  DO NOT LEAVE YOUR CAR UNATTENDED! We want to unload your car as quickly as possible so that you can go park it and come back to find all of your stuff has been moved up to your room for you.
