MOVE IN 2021**

As JMU continues to prepare to re-open campus this fall, we wanted to share updated information regarding residence hall move-in and orientation for first-year students.  

**This webpage will be updated as new info is received regarding the COVID-19 Pandemic. Please check this page periodically as you prepare for Move-In this fall. More details about the move-in process and the orientation program will be shared later this summer as we finalize our plans.  Please visit us on the web for more information about Residence Life, Orientation and JMU’s response to COVID-19.

  

We've compiled a useful move in guide that addresses many of the questions asked about moving in! Reading this page in its entirety will help you prepare for Move-In Day! 

Below you'll find:

If you have any questions about Move-In (that are not addressed on this page), please contact the Housing Office at (540) 568-HOME (4663) or res-life@jmu.edu.


 

Making Your Room Your Home

 Room Condition Form (RCF)

You will have the opportunity to complete an inspection of your room when you move in. All students with housing assignments will be able to access the electronic Room Condition Form (RCF) through MyMadison under the Student Center section. It will be used as a tool to measure the condition of the room when you move out. Examining the RCF when you check in and confirming the condition of the room will help you avoid unwarranted damage charges at the end of the year. If there are damages in your room and they are not noted on the check in RCF, you could be held financially responsible for repairs after check out.

 What to Bring

MUST HAVES:

  • Several washable/reusable face coverings
  • A thermometer
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Disinfectant wipes
  • Shower caddy

 

SUGGESTIONS:

This is not a comprehensive list.

  • Alarm Clock
  • Backpack
  • Bed linens, pillow(s), blanket(s)
  • Bed risers (with or without USB ports; risers with electrical outlets are prohibited)
  • Bicycle
  • Bicycle lock with a durable lock
  • Hangers
  • Desk Lamp (with or without USB ports; desk lamps with electrical outlets are prohibited)
  • Box Fan
  • First-aid kit
  • Flashlight
  • Laundry basket and liquid detergent for high efficiency machines
  • Message board
  • Toiletries
  • Postage stamps and envelopes
  • Posters
  • Rubber mallet (for adjusting bed height)
  • School supplies
  • Sewing kit
  • Shower shoes
  • Shower caddy
  • Circuit-protected power strips
  • Towels and washcloths
  • Small trashcan
  • USB plug-in or bluetooth supported printer

 

A Note about Appliances/Electronics: Appliances, coffee pots with automatic shut-off, desk lamps, radios, stereos, cable-ready televisions, UL-approved hot pots and BlueRay/DVD players are all fine to bring with you, but coordinate with your roommate first so you won't have two of everything. All appliances not plugged directly into a wall receptacle must be plugged directly into a circuit-protected power strip. For more information on appliances, visit our Hall Policies page. Any items not listed are up to the discretion of ORL.


A Note about Printers: Wireless printing on a large wireless network is much different than wireless printing from a home network. At home you might have ten total devices, one of which is a printer, therefore the printer is easy to identify, not to mention your network at home is usually secure and only accessible to you and your immediate family. At JMU there are thousands of devices on the network and a couple hundred of them could be printers. With the increased volume of printers, it makes it much harder to identify which printer is the right one to use. Another issue we face with wireless printers has to do with our network being open. On an open network, other people can see the printer devices, which means any student can print to any printer regardless of content or time of day. Also, our network is looking for an IP address and based on the DHCP lease the IP address can change making it that much more difficult to locate the right device associated with a particular IP address.

 Wireless Internet & TV

Wireless internet service is available in all residence halls through MyResNet. Once residents have their room assignment, they should register for a MyResNet account at www.MyResNet.com. This should be completed prior to arrival on campus so residents have access to the network the day they arrive. Be sure to register all devices (computer/laptop/iphone/ipad etc….)

One Ethernet port per resident is available in their room. If residents prefer to connect their computer to a wall-mounted Ethernet port, they should bring a network cable.

Residents should not bring wireless routers/hubs/servers etc. for use in the residence halls as these items are prohibited.

Residence halls have cable TV connection in each student room and in the hall lounge. Students must bring a coaxial cable. Our halls also have Stream2, allowing students to stream TV shows, movies and sports from their phone, laptop and other Wi-Fi connected devices. See instructions to set up your Stream2 Account.

Televisions are not to be mounted on any walls or university furniture.

For more in depth information on how to setup your wireless internet and/or tv cable or streaming, visit our Wireless Internet & TV page.

 Carpet/Rugs

All residence halls have tiled floors with the exception of Harper Allen-Lee Hall, Spotswood Hall and the Apartments on Grace (they have carpeted floors). Students may want to bring an area rug for their floor.

 Lofts

A loft bed is any temporary structure or device that is intended to elevate a single sleeping surface from floor level so that it creates additional floor space in a room.

If residents are bringing their own loft bed or constructing one, the structure must comply with the guidelines specified in the loft Hall Policy. Please be aware that storage is not available for bed pieces that are not used.

 Linens

Mattresses in our residence halls are extra-long (36" x 80"). 

 Refrigerators

In single and double bedroom spaces, only one mini refrigerator (up to 5 cubic feet) is permitted. If you live in the Village, one mini refrigerator is also permitted in the suite common area. Two refrigerators are permitted in tripled rooms.

Any appliance with a heavy electrical draw, such as a refrigerator, hair dryer, or an iron, must be plugged directly into a wall outlet, rather than a circuit-protected power strip.

All power strips must be UL approved, circuit-protected, and have a reset button. Power strips must be plugged directly into a wall outlet. Plugging a power strip into another power strip is prohibited. Power strips must lie flat on the ground, or be secured to a flat surface in such a manner that no stress is placed on the power cords. Extension cords of any kind are strictly prohibited, including appliances with a built in electrical outlet, such as lamps, bed risers, etc.

All appliances should be covered under homeowner's/renter's insurance policies. Students are responsible for renting or buying their own refrigerators. 

Microfridges are not authorized on campus (fridge/microwave combo).

 

 Surge Protectors

Surge protectors with no kind of reset/on or off switch you press from one side to the other are not permitted.

  • These can come in all kinds of configurations.

    • Examples: Cube adapter, looks more like a square with 6 plugs usually, but no on/off switch, a smaller looking power strip with 3 plugs and USB ports, but no on/off switch.

Only circuit-protected power strips are permitted. Circuit-protection meaning it needs to have reset/on side and an off side.

  •  “Reset” is another word for “on”, reset meaning the power strip is reset/on and functioning normally with the electrical load plugged in to it.
  • If the electrical load becomes too much, then the power strip will switch to the off position and at that point needs to be turned back to the reset/on position.
    • Any kind of device with a USB only plug in with charging capability is permitted, per the state fire marshal.
    • Examples: lamps, alarm clocks
  • However if there is an electrical outlet embedded within these types of items then it is not permitted; example: bed risers.

 Desk Hutches

Students interested in purchasing desk hutches can visit College Savers website for ordering information.

Orders will be sent via Fed-Ex to the central mail room.

 Insurance

The university cannot be held accountable for loss, damage, or theft to any student's personal property. All students are encouraged to carry their own insurance coverage. Your family's homeowner or tenant insurance may provide coverage or you can arrange for personal property insurance through a private agency. Visit the National Student Services Incorporated website for more information about Theft, Fire, and Accident Insurance for students.

Move-In Day Tips

 Unbox New Items & Recycling on Move-In Day

To make things fit in your car easier, consider unboxing new items. This will help you consolidate and will make for less recycling and trash bin trips on move-in day!

Assembled boxes containing other packaging or trash take up more space and can create hazards by overflowing trash rooms and dumpsters, blocking exits and contaminating recycling efforts.

  1. Please empty boxes of any packaging or other contents.
  2. Foam should be put in a dumpster.
  3. Flatten boxes and stack in area designated by location below:
    •  Village Halls, Eagle Hall, Gifford Hall, and Converse Hall: Boxes should be empty, flattened, and stacked next to dumpster.
    • All other Residence Halls: Boxes should be empty, flattened, and stacked in trash or recycling rooms. 

 

 Tag Your Bags

To help make move-in day run super smooth, be sure to label all your bags and boxes with your hall and room number!

 Less is More

Once you’re all moved in and assess the things you really need, you can always make a store run! Consider waiting to bring your winter clothing until later. Your family can always bring it with them when they visit for Family Weekend!

 Bring a Handcart

Moving carts will not be available on move in day. Feel free to bring a handcart with you!

 Use the Move-In Day Driving Directions

Please follow each residence hall’s specific driving directions during move in to create a smooth move-in process for everyone. 

 Have Your JACard Ready

You will need your JACard at check in, so make sure its in an easy to reach spot in the car. Reference your One Book to learn more about securing your JACard.

 Beating the Heat

If you're living in a hall without air conditioning, don't worry! Crisp fall air will be here before you know it. Until then, to maximize air flow in your room, make sure both you and your roommate have a fan.

Place a box fan in your window with the fans facing outwards. This will pull the hot air out of our the room, leaving cooler air inside! Have another fan in your room to circulate the cooler air in your room. 

Air conditioning units and personal air coolers are prohibited.

Also, be sure to check your res hall's hall description to learn about its HVAC system and how to properly use it.

 

Other ways to beat the heat:

  • Hang out in your hall’s TV Lounge! You can indulge in the air conditioning while hanging out and making new friends.
  • Drink lots of cold water! Place a few bottles in the freezer and sip away.

  • Have a popsicle party! Chill out with your roomies and hall friends while enjoying a sweet treat.

  • Cool it down! Use a cold, damp washcloth on your forehead or neck. It’s a quick trick that can cool you down in a snap.

  • Need a bit of a break? You can always visit other places on campus The Student Success Center, Madison Union, Festival and UREC all have air conditioning.

 

 Hanging Things on Your Walls

To avoid fines at the end of the year, be sure to check your res hall's hall description for wall type to see what types of adhesives are allowed. 

  • On Cinder Block:
    • poster putty
    • command strips and hooks
    • Bonus tip: Wipe the wall area with alcohol and let dry to ensure that things will stick really well!
  • On Drywall:
    • push pins
    • thumb tacks
  • The following is prohibited on all wall types:
    • nails
    • screws
    • duct tape
    • any kind of tape
  •  

 Meet Your RAs & HD

We're here for you! The Resident Advisers (RAs) and Hall Director (HD) are always available and are there to help you with everyday life. 

Resident Advisers (RAs) are dynamic leaders on a floor of residents who create positive communities and coordinate fun and educational events to enhance the campus living experience.

Hall Directors (HDs) manage the residence halls and supervise the RAs.

Building with our hall staff will give you a support system unlike any other!

 How to Submit a Maintenance Request

Something not quite right with your room upon your arrival? Be sure to submit a maintenance request. 

 Read our Hall Policies

JMU students are expected to maintain a high level of maturity, responsibility and common sense regarding their behaviors and actions. In addition, students are responsible for understanding hall policies, rules and regulations contained in the JMU Student Handbook, their JMU Residential Contract, the JMU Honor Code and information from residence hall staff members. Students may contact their resident adviser or hall director if they have questions.
